Robert Eggers’ ‘The Lighthouse’ trailer is out, starring Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson.
The Lighthouse, 2019 black-and-white psychological horror film is directed and written by Robert Eggers. The movie is named the best movie at Cannes’ Critics Week and Directors’ Fortnight by the International Federation of Film Critics (FIPRESCI).
A24 released the trailer of ‘The Lighthouse’ which gives us a peek at the next effort from Robert Eggers. The story is about lighthouse keepers who are on a remote and mysterious island far off the coast of Maine in the 1890s.
Pattinson and Dafoe drink, argue, hug, and play with a sea creature. The duo is “just looking to earn a living, on the run,” Dafoe’s character says in the clip.
Dafoe has had two consecutive Oscar nominations for acting, last year for his lead role in ‘At Eternity’s Gate’` and the year before for his supporting performance in ‘The Florida Project’.
Robert Eggers described the film as “something a little weirder” than his 2015 breakout The Witch and calls it “more dreadful than horror.”
