A24 has started this week off on a rather dark note by releasing the second trailer for The Witch director Robert Eggers' The Lighthouse. Much like the first trailer, this one showcases the stellar performances from Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson as they drive each other mad amidst the hallucinatory (possibly real) nightmare they find themselves in. Watch it below!
In the film that A24 describes as a "hypnotic and hallucinatory tale," two lighthouse keepers, Thomas Wake (Dafoe) and Ephraim Winslow (Pattinson), try to maintain their sanity while living on a remote and mysterious New England island in the 1890s.
The Lighthouse was shot on 35mm black and white stock, recently premiered at Cannes and Toronto film festivals, where it received standing ovations and high praise from critics.
Robert Eggers co-wrote the film with Max Eggers. The Lighthouse also stars Valeriia Karaman and will be release in theaters on October 18th, 2019 in NY and LA, with an expansion to follow shortly thereafter.
