The New Trailer for ‘The Lighthouse’ is a Study in Madness

The new trailer for The Lighthouse has arrived, and it reveals a spine-tingling look about two men who are slowly going mad (if they were ever sane to begin with).

The Lighthouse, directed by Robert Eggers, has been drawing a lot of notice as of late, and for good reason. By all accounts it’s a masterpiece of a film according to those who have seen it at several film festivals already. The latest trailer seems to corroborate these reports, as the pieces of the story revealed appear to be a part of something strange and wonderful.

First, I have to say I love that this film was done in black and white. It’s something rarely seen anymore, but it can be used to great effect when done properly (which appears to be the case with this film). Also, I don’t know that I ever thought about the combination of Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson before, but now that I’ve seen teases of it, it’s something that I simply must watch play out in full, as the interplay between the two of them looks brilliant!

I’m still not entirely certain what all of The Lighthouse is about, but I’ve seen enough to know that it is right at the top of my watchlist when it comes out later this fall.

The Lighthouse is scheduled for theatrical release on October 18, 2019.
