“Kinds of Kindness”: Trailer for Lanthimos' new film. When is the premiere?

New film Yorgos Lanthimos “Kinds of Kindness” will debut in US cinemas on June 21. Viewers of this year's Cannes festival (May 14-25) would have seen it a little earlier. Behind the scenes it is said that the production will fight for the Palme d'Or in 2024.

“Kinds of Kindness” is to be an anthology consisting of three novellas set in modern times. The project was initially supposed to be titled “And,”. It was shot in 2022 in New Orleans. The film will tell the story of a man who has no choice and tries to take control of his life.

The film's script is the joint work of Yorgos Lanthimos and Efthimis Filippou. Previously, they collaborated on: “The Fang”, “The Lobster” and “The Killing of a Sacred Deer”

“It is a real pleasure for us to continue working with Yorgos, and this project will be another truly original idea for which he is renowned. This is our fifth film together and we are delighted that he and Efthmis have entrusted us with their brilliant script. Yorgos has brought together an incredible team of professionals and actors,” said producers from the Searchlight studio and its collaborator Film4.

Just like in the four Oscars awarded this year “Poor creatures“, we will see Yorgos Lanthimos in the main role in the new film Emma Stone. A few days ago, Bella's performance in the latter production earned her the second Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences statuette in her career.

In “Kinds of Kindness” we will also see other stars of “Poor Things”: Willem Dafoe and Margaret Qualley, as well as Joe Alwyn, who starred alongside Stone in Lanthimos' previous film, “The Favourite”. The cast also includes: Jesse Plemons, Hong Chau, Hunter Schafer and Mamoudou Athie.

The first trailer has appeared online (check it out!). The creators reveal what “Kinds of Kindness” will be about. The song we hear in the trailer is the iconic “Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This)” by Eurythmics.
