Carey Mulligan Seeks Delicious Revenge
Focus Features released the first trailer of Young Promising Woman . This is the first feature film by Emerald Fennell, best known as the showrunner of the famous series Killing Eve . Fennell has partnered with Oscar-nominated Carey Mulligan in what appears to be a unique, timely and violent tale of modern vengeance.
The trailer begins with Carey Mulligan, apparently too drunk to stay calm in a bar. A guy, under the pretext of being kind, takes her home and proceeds to take advantage of the situation. To his surprise, the woman he thought was a drunken brothel had just made a show and decided to give him a lesson probably ugly on his lousy actions. We then learn that it is a weekly activity for her because we see many of the men she is shooting at, many of whom claim to be "cool guys". There is a bit of mystery in the center of the story, something of the past of this woman who haunts her. We do not know what it is, but it is clear that it has to do with a man who has wronged him. The whole thing is tuned to an orchestral version of Toxic by Britney Spears, which just adds to the atmosphere.
The film is described as a "delicious new version of revenge". Emerald Fennell, besides realizing, also wrote the screenplay. The cast includes Adam Brody ( Shazam ), Bo Burnham ( The Big Sick ), Alison Brie ( Community ), Connie Britton ( American Horror Story ), Christopher Mintz-Plasse ( Superbad ), Alfred Molina ( Raiders of the Lost Ark ), Laverne Cox ( Orange is the new black ) , Max Greenfield ( New Girl ), Jennifer Coolidge ( American Pie ) and Clancy Brown ( The Shawshank Redemption )
Young Promising Woman focuses on Cassie (Carey Mulligan), who everyone said was a promising young woman. However, all this is undone thanks to a mysterious event that has suddenly derailed his future. Nothing in Cassie's life is what appears to be on the surface. She is wickedly smart, incredibly cunning, and she lives a secret double life at night, which sees her spinning the table against men who attack drunken women in clubs. Now, an unexpected encounter is about to give him a chance to repair the wrongs of the past.
Among the producers of the project is Oscar-nominated Margot Robbie, who is only adding to the plot. The actress has played more of an active role behind the scenes as a producer lately, and it's one of the projects she's decided to support. Tom Ackerley, Josey McNamara, Ben Browning and Ashley Fox are also producers. In addition, the film was recently revealed as one of the selections for the Sundance Film Festival 2020, where it will hold its premiere. Promising young woman is scheduled to arrive in cinemas on April 17, 2020, in Focus Features. Do not forget to discover the new trailer by yourself.
