When the apocalypse happens, do you want to be alone? Oddly enough, I Think We’re Alone Now protagonist Del wants exactly that. When a second companion, Grace, comes along everything goes into disarray. With the release of this second teaser we are privy to our first-look at our second of four characters in this film, Elle Fanning (The Neon Demon, Super 8). Alongside Fanning is the ever incredible Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones, The Station Agent), who from the trailer alone, delivers an intense and outstanding performance. The cast is rounded out by Paul Giamatti (John Dies At The End, 12 Years A Slave) and Charlotte Gainsbourg (Antichrist, Nymphomaniac Vol. 1&2).
I Think We’re Alone Now is a sci-fi drama from acclaimed director Reed Morano (Meadowland, The Handmaid’s Tale). Morano is an wildly talented cinematographer turned director, who was the youngest female member of the American Society of Cinematographers when she joined. Not only THAT, but she was the first woman to win an Emmy in the Drama Series category, as WELL as the first woman to win an Emmy and a Directors Guild of America Award in the same year!
Del is alone in the world. After the human race is wiped out, he lives in his small, empty town, content in his solitude and the utopia he’s methodically created for himself — until he is discovered by Grace, an interloper whose history and motives are obscure. And to make matters worse, she wants to stay.
Following in the footsteps of its award-winning director, this film has also garnered an award at the Sundance Film Festival being nominated for the Grand Jury Prize, and Morano winning the Special Jury Prize for Excellence in Filmmaking. While the film has received mixed reviews a la a 6.2/10 on IMDb and a 52 on Metacritic, it is sitting tall at an 81% on Rotten Tomatoes. Shortly after Sundance the film was picked up by Momentum Pictures, who has had many notable releases like Milk, O Brother, Where Art Thou?, Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind, and The Illusionists (just to name a few).
I Think We’re Alone Now creeps its way into theaters September 14th. Do you plan on seeing this film alone, or with your Grace? Let us know what you think of Peter Dinklage and Elle Fanning sharing the screen for the first time!
