A film I saw at last year's Sundance that I've heard curiously little about is Simon Killer, which had strong word of mouth and seemed poised for at least a solid theatrical run. IFC Films scooped up the rights pretty quickly based on the positive buzz for Antonio Campos'(Afterschool) moody thriller, but have been sitting on it for over a year. Still without a firm release date but slated for this spring, they've finally decided to release a new trailer.
The film stars Brady Corbet(Funny Games) as the titular Simon Killer, an American who jets off to Paris after a bad break-up. He finds himself involved with a prostitute, and as they get deeper into each other's lives, Simon's darker intentions begin to emerge. Campos also produced Martha Marcy May Marlene, which Corbet co-starred in, and some of that twisted darkness is certainly peeking around the edges here.
