We are big fans of French filmmaker Julia Ducournau and her debut feature, Raw. We’ve been waiting five years for that follow up and we were overjoyed that film Titane is getting it’s World Premiere at Cannes next month. Today we get even more excited as the UK Teaser Trailer has arrived online!
We noticed the American distributor Neon Pictures released the U.S Version of the trailer this afternoon. Thankfully we didn’t have to wait long to find out who is covering the film in UK and Ireland, it’s Altitude Films.
Agathe Rousselle and Vincent Lindon star in this one tells the story ten years after a series of unexplained crimes father and son are reunited . There is also a French synopsis which leans towards the film’s title “A metal highly resistant to heat and corrosion, with high tensile strength alloys, often used in medical prostheses due to its pronounced biocompatibility.”
This suggests this crime thriller will be more than a ordinary crime film. We expect nothing less from Julia Ducournau. The dialogue free trailer does nothing more than tease us with it’s intense moody tone…
TITANE: Following a series of unexplained crimes, a father is reunited with the son who disappeared ten years ago.
TITANE stars Agathe Rousselle, Cannes Best Actor-winner Vincent Lindon (THE MEASURE OF A MAN), Laïs Salameh and reunites Ducournau with RAW star Garance Marillier.
