The first two trailers for erotic thriller Plush, which include this newly-released red band version, have mostly been a flurry of images rather than anything truly cohesive. Catherine Hardwicke, looking to bounce back into the rougher-edged teen movies of her earlier career, seems to be aiming for something more visceral and dangerous, rather than soft and mushy like when she kicked off the Twilight franchise. Whether she accomplishes that goal we'll find out later this month, but the latest footage is a pretty good start.
Amongst the chaotic, hard rock-infused footage a narrative does begin to emerge, one that involves a potentially harmful love triangle between Emily Browning, Xavier Samuel, and Cam Gigandet's eyebrows. Browning plays a rock star, lost after the death of her brother and band mate, who finds a creative and personal resurgence in the arms of a new band member. Soon he begins to push the sexual boundaries to the extreme, past where she is willing to go.
Plush will take the stage on September 16th, then in an odd move will hit VOD a month later.
