Director Mary Harron has been tackling a very engaging subject nearly thirty-years of her career. Now, Magnolia Pictures has dropped a new trailer for Mary’s latest outing, “Daliland” which Ezra Miller and Ben Kingsley both portray famed artist Salvador Dalí.
Harron’s new film examines Surrealist legend Salvador Dalí, in Set in New York and Spain in 1974, the film is told through the eyes of James (Christopher Briney), a young assistant keen to make his name in the art world, who helps the eccentric and mercurial Dalí prepare for a big gallery show in N.Y.
Directed by acclaimed filmmaker Mary Harron (“I SHOT ANDY WARHOL,” “AMERICAN PSYCHO“), “DALÍLAND” stars Ben Kingsley as the titular Salvador Dalí, one of the most world-renowned artists of the 20th century and focuses on the later years of the strange and fascinating marriage between Dalí and his wife, Gala (Barbara Sukowa), as their seemingly unshakable bond begins to stress and fracture. Rupert Graves, Suki Waterhouse, Andreja Pejic and Ezra Miller also star.
Miller, who is also the star of Warner Bros.’ much-anticipated superhero film “The Flash,” set for release June 16. The title, delayed by COVID, has been the focus of speculation due to Miller’s personal issues, including a string of headlines surrounding arrests and controversies. Miller issued a statement in August saying that they had been seeking treatment for “complex mental health issues.”
The film’s release June 9 in theaters and on-demand. Magnolia Pictures nabbed the feature following its premiere at the Toronto Film Festival in September.
