Watch: Moody New Trailer for Antonio Campos' 2012 Sundance Entry 'Simon Killer'
Distributor IFC Films has released the first trailer for Antonio Campos' long in development "Afterschool" follow-up, "Simon Killer."
The film stars Brady Corbet ("Martha Marcy May Marlene") as Simon, an American college grad who, on the heels of a break-up with his high-school sweetheart, decides to visit Paris. Once there, he quickly falls for a young prostitute, and as they become more involved in each other's lives, Simon's true intentions are brought into question.
Campos is a co-founder of NY-based production company Borderline Films, where he produced Sean Durkin's 2011 Sundance hit "Martha Marcy May Marlene."
Since being picked up by IFC Films at last year's Sundance (look at our Sundance review here), "Simon" screened at many festivals, and is scheduled to open the upcoming Film Comment Selects festival later this month at New York's Lincoln Center. The film is currently set for an April 5th limited release date and an On Demand release on April 12th.
