Searchlight Pictures released a new trailer for Yorgos Lanthimos’ Poor Things, starring Emma Stone as Bella Baxter, a young woman who is brought back to life by a brilliant and unconventional scientist. The film is scheduled to hit theaters on September 8, 2023, by Searchlight Pictures.
From filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos and producer Emma Stone comes the incredible tale and fantastical evolution of Bella Baxter (Stone), a young woman brought back to life by the brilliant and unorthodox scientist Dr. Godwin Baxter (Willem Dafoe). Under Baxter’s protection, Bella is eager to learn. Hungry for the worldliness she is lacking, Bella runs off with Duncan Wedderburn (Mark Ruffalo), a slick and debauched lawyer, on a whirlwind adventure across the continents. Free from the prejudices of her times, Bella grows steadfast in her purpose to stand for equality and liberation.
The film also stars Ramy Youssef as Max McCandless, Jerrod Carmichael as Harry Astley, Christopher Abbott as Sir Aubrey de la Pole Blessington, Margaret Qualley as Felicity, Kathryn Hunter as Swiney, Suzy Bemba as Toinette, and Wayne Brett as Pries. See the posters below.
Produced by Ed Guiney, Andrew Lowe, Yorgos Lanthimos, and Emma Stone.
