Watch: Sublime 'Queen of Earth' Trailer Breaks Out Some Old School Psychological Horror

Jul 24, 2015

It's hard to make a movie trailer stand out in this day and age, so one way to do that is simple: make a movie trailer from a different day and age. That's the tactic the new thriller Queen of Earth has gone for and the result is downright sublime.

The movie, directed by Alex Ross Perry (Listen up Philip) stars Elisabeth Moss as a woman who just needs to get away from it all, so she heads to a friend's (Katherine Waterston) lake house for some peace and quiet. But since we already used the word thriller in this post, you can no doubt guess that she doesn't quite find peace and quiet.

The trailer is a total throwback to the '70s and '80s, when movies could be built up as events based purely on things like style and performance. It's a promise that if you miss out on this, you'll miss out on the movie everyone is talking about. But, it's also done in a sort of sly, winking way that seems to echo the dry sense of humor at play in the actual movie.

It's a brilliant trailer and now we can't wait for August 26, 2015 to see the actual movie.
