Amazon has released a trailer for “Promising Young Woman” director Emerald Fennell’s hotly anticipated second feature “Saltburn” which is also selected at the opening film of the 67th BFI London Film Festival on October 4th.
Set in the mid-2000s, Barry Keoghan stars as student Oliver Quick who is struggling to find his place at Oxford University. He finds himself drawn into the world of the charming and aristocratic Felix Catton (Jacob Elordi), who invites him for a summer at Saltburn – his eccentric family’s sprawling estate.As Oliver gets to know them more, however, things begin to unravel quickly.
Besides Keoghan, Carey Mulligan, Rosamund Pike, Richard E. Grant, Alison Oliver and Archie Madekwe are also co-star in this project.
Emerald Fennell’s “Saltburn” brings style, swag and a whole lot of Barry Keoghan’s extra manhood to the award race. After having its world premiere at the Telluride Film Festival on last night, audiences were in for a wild, it could be the sexiest films to grace the big screen so far this year.
“Academy Award winner Emerald Fennell returns with an expertly crafted and exhilarating thrill ride of a film that showcases an enormous depth of U.K. talents in front of and behind the camera,” incoming London Film Festival director Kristy Matheson said of the film. “With its exceptional performances, delicious plot twists and a soundtrack of early 21st century pop bangers, this hugely ambitious film immediately stole our hearts.”
Fennell, Josey McNamara and Margot Robbie produce the film. “Saltburn“ will hit theaters Nov. 24.
