In July we saw a teaser trailer for I Think We’re Alone Now, a post-apocalyptic drama starring Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones, The Station Agent) and Elle Fanning (The Neon Demon, Live by Night). Now Momentum Pictures has released an official trailer.
The movie, which is directed by Reed Morano (The Handmaid’s Tale, Billions), tells the story of a man named Del (Dinklage) who’s all alone in the world until a woman named Grace (Fanning) shows up and disrupts his solitary existence.
You can read more about I Think We’re Alone Now and check out the official trailer, along with a recently released red band teaser and a poster, below.
Del (Peter Dinklage) is alone in the world. Literally. After the human race is wiped out, he lives in a small, empty town, methodically going from house to house, collecting batteries and other useful items, and burying the dead. He dines alone, reads, watches movies, and shelves books in the local library he’s made his home. He’s content in his solitude—until he discovers Grace (Elle Fanning), an interloper on his quiet earth. Her history and motives are obscure, and worse yet, she wants to stay.
From the outset, I Think We’re Alone Now departs from mainstream post-apocalyptic conventions, declining to elaborate on how the world ended. It doesn’t matter. Director Reed Morano is more intrigued by who’s left—the psychologies of these unmoored characters, the idea of a recluse thrust into companionship. What does the end of the world mean to a guy who had nobody in his life? Impeccably crafted, full of humor and beautifully observed moments, and with a tinge of social satire, Morano’s understated sci-fi vision is a poignant contemplation of loneliness and human connection.
I Think We’re Alone Now is set to be released in theaters in New York and Los Angeles on September 14th, followed by a release in select theaters nationwide and on demand on September 21st.
