Writer/director Emerald Fennell’s feature debut is all about that revenge life in Promising Young Woman. Focus Features will open the film in the U.S. on April 17 with actress Carey Mulligan (Drive, Wall Street: Money Never Sleeps) in the lead, and we now have an official trailer to start things off.
From visionary director Emerald Fennell (Killing Eve) comes a delicious new take on revenge. Everyone said Cassie (Carey Mulligan) was a promising young woman… until a mysterious event abruptly derailed her future. But nothing in Cassie’s life is what it appears to be: she’s wickedly smart, tantalisingly cunning, and she’s living a secret double life by night. Now, an unexpected encounter is about to give Cassie a chance to right the wrongs of the past in this thrilling and wildly entertaining story.
The film is set to go firsty before Sundance in the new year. Mulligan stars with Laverne Cox, and Bo Burnham, and an ensemble cast that lists Alison Brie, Connie Britton, Jennifer Coolidge, Max Greenfield, Christopher Mintz-Plasse, Chris Lowell, Sam Richardson, Molly Shannon, and Clancy Brown.
