When The Lobster premiered at Cannes, our Jada Yuan said it has a “hilarious deadpan absurdity,” and that’s evident in the film’s new trailer. (Original trailer is below.) The film from Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos bills itself as a sci-fi romantic thriller starring Colin Farrell in a dystopic world that really hates single people. Singles are rounded up and forced to find a mate in 45 days, lest they be turned into an animal of their choice. Farrell’s character chose the lobster, obviously, because lobsters mate for life.
The Lobster comes out in theaters on May 13.
