Sofia Coppola last directed the Netflix special “A Very Murray Christmas,” but her last feature film seen on the big screen was 2013’s “The Bling Ring.” Now, the filmmaker returns with “The Beguiled,” a remake of Clint Eastwood’s 1971 film of the same name, which stars Kirsten Dunst as Edwina Dabney and Elle Fanning as Carol. After months of seeing photos from the set that the actresses shared on social media, Focus Features has finally unveiled the first trailer.

The drama is based on Thomas P. Cullinan’s 1966 novel “A Painted Devil” and is set during the Civil War. The story follows an injured Union soldier (Colin Farrell) who, while imprisoned in a Confederate girls’ boarding school, cons his way into each of the lonely women’s hearts, causing them to turn on each other, and eventually, on him. Nicole Kidman, Angourie Rice and Oona Laurence co-star.

“The Beguiled” will be released in theaters on June 23. Check out the first trailer below:
