Some of us were lucky enough to see Green Room in 2015 (you can read Ryan’s review here), but in a world where this film exists, we’re all lucky.
This teaser trailer is perfect – it shows very little, but you know what you’re getting into. Blue Ruin proved that director Jeremy Saulnier is extraordinary at exploring the physical and emotional toll of violence, and that same ruthless detail is one of the many things that elevates Green Room above its simple premise. The other key element, as you can hear from the teaser, is Patrick Stewart. He is one of the most patient, quiet, and terrifying villains of the last few years, and I can’t wait to for you all to see him.
If you like what you see here, odds are you’ll be very satisfied on April 15th.
