The Lobster is released in the UK and Ireland from 16 October.
The Lobster, which impressed critics at this year’s Cannes film festival, stars Colin Farrell as a man living in a dystopian future that requires all single people to find love or risk being turned into wild animals. The trailer shows Colin Farrell arriving at an institute for single people with a dog he claims is his brother who did not survive the same process. It looks like another hilarious concept from the innovative greek writer/director Yorgos Lanthimos, who also directed 2010’s ‘Dogtooth,’ which was a dark comedy about three teenagers confined to their parents’ isolated country estate, and it also explored a world of strict rules and regimes. Alongside Farrell, The Lobster stars Rachel Weisz, John C Reilly, Ben Whishaw and Olivia Coleman. You can check out the trailer for ‘Dogtooth’ below.
