A24, the company behind some of the best independent films like Moonlight, has released the first trailer for Under the Silver Lake.
Starring Andrew Garfield, the film is David Robert Mitchell‘s follow up to It Follows. But rather than give us another terrifying metaphor, we are treated to a quirky neo-noir flick that sees Garfield searching all over Los Angeles for a missing girl. Check out the latest trailer below.
The trailer may look like the film is a starry romance about two lovers who happen to meet by coincidence, but it then delightfully shakes things up by turning it into a neo-noir. Garfield’s Sam is obsessed with finding Riley Keough‘s Sarah, and he believes that she has left clues that will help him find her. The only thing is, these clues are left in the oddest of places like playing a vinyl record or a post card. And he begins to “connect the dots” that will hopefully help him find her.
Honestly, it feels like the kind of film you can get high off of, and never want it to wear off. And, of course, these clues also lead him to a conspiracy, which makes the film even crazier.
Here is the official synopsis for Under the Silver Lake:
From the dazzling imagination that brought you It Follows comes a delirious neonoir fever dream about one man’s search for the truth behind the mysterious crimes, murders and disappearances in his East L.A. neighborhood.
Sam (Andrew Garfield) is a disenchanted 33-year-old who discovers a mysterious woman, Sarah (Riley Keough), frolicking in his apartment’s swimming pool. When she vanishes, Sam embarks on a surreal quest across Los Angeles to decode the secret behind her disappearance, leading him into the murkiest depths of mystery, scandal and conspiracy in the City of Angels.
Under the Silver Lake also stars Topher Grace, Laura-Leigh, and Zosia Mamet. It is scheduled to hit theaters on June 22, 2018.
