'I Think We're Alone Now' trailer finds Peter Dinklage and Elle Fanning facing the apocalypse in high contrast
'I Think We're Alone Now' stars Elle Fanning against Peter Dinklage as an odd couple thrown together by a mysterious disaster that leaves them the last two people on earth
'The Handmaid's Tale' director Reed Morano's new feature is a haunting post-apocalyptic indie film which will premiere exclusively in New York and Los Angeles theatres on September 14 and will be available nationwide from September 21. The film titled 'I Think We’re Alone Now' stars Elle Fanning and Peter Dinklage as an odd couple thrown together by a mysterious disaster that leaves them the last two people on earth.
The official trailer released on Wednesday opens with an eerie music accompanied visually by deserted streets and torn American flags as Dinklage walks the empty streets in trepidation. While dragging dead bodies and casually tossing it in the graves, he peers into an abandoned car and meets another "alive" person, Fanning, who question each other why are they still alive.
The 2 minutes 41 seconds trailer shows a glimpse of how a man living in a small empty town in solitude, going house to house to clean out and bury all the bodies wiped out by a mysterious disease is thrown on loop as he discovers the mysterious, freewheeling young woman.
The offcial trailer reads, "Del (Peter Dinklage) is alone in the world. After the human race is wiped out, he lives in his small, empty town, content in his solitude and the utopia he’s methodically created for himself — until he is discovered by Grace (Elle Fanning), an interloper whose history and motives are obscure. Worse yet, she wants to stay."
Morano, who began her career as a cinematographer, has given the film a striking visual trademark where bright colors such as yellow and pink pop against sharp blue-grey backgrounds. The film debuted at Sundance, where it picked up a special jury award for “Excellence in filmmaking.”
The film written by Mike Makowsky, is produced by Fred Berger, Brian Kavanaugh-Jones, Fernando Loureiro & Roberto Vasconcellos, David Ginsberg and runs for 1 hour 39 minutes.
