Take a look at this new trailer released for I Think We’re Alone Now, a drama/sci-fi film featuring the oh-so enticing team up of stars Peter Dinklage and Elle Fanning.
Dinklage plays Del, a man living in a small, empty town. He is the last person left on Earth after the human race is wiped out… until one day he comes across a girl, Grace (Fanning). What unfolds next remains to be seen; the trailer below intrigues, teasing some of the darker layers these characters unveil as the narrative progresses.
The early reviews are quite mixed, ranging from unimpressed, due to the incessantly dreary tone and lack of drama, to the impressed, due to the strong performances, the cinematography, and its meditational ruminations on loneliness and grief. We’ll see.
Director Reed Marano, known for executive producing and directing three episodes of acclaimed series The Handmaid’s Tale, helms from a screenplay by Mike Makowsky (Take Me). In the US, I Think We’re Alone Now will begin a limited theatrical run on September 14 before going wide and hitting On Demand on September 21.
Synopsis for I Think We’re Alone Now:
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.
