Searchlight Pictures Releases ‘Poor Things’ Trailer

Today, Searchlight Pictures shared a new trailer for Poor Things. From filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos comes the incredible tale and fantastical evolution of Bella Baxter (Emma 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.

From a screenplay by Tony McNamara, Poor Things is produced by Ed Guiney, Andrew Lowe, Lanthimos, and Stone. Ramy Youssef, Jerrod Carmichael, Christopher Abbott, and Suzy Bemba round out the cast.

Poor Things will open in theaters on Friday, September 8.
