One of the most ambitious titles to play on the festival circuit last year, Yorgos Lanthimos’ “The Lobster” is finally coming to U.S. theaters this March and, trust us, you’ve never seen anything quite like it before.
Set in somewhat of a dystopian future where society highly values relationships, the movie stars Colin Farrell as an architect who checks into a hotel after his wife leaves him. The hotel acts as a dark and twisted dating service, as the architect has just 45 days to find a new partner or else he’ll be transformed into an animal of his choosing. John C. Reilly, Rachel Weisz, Ben Whishaw, Olivia Colman and Lea Seydoux co-star.
After picking up the film after its splashy Cannes debut last May, Alchemy will release “The Lobster” in theaters on March 11. Watch the new official trailer above and introduce yourself to Lanthimos’ weird and absurdist vision.
