The international trailer for the sci-fi psychological thriller Vivarium has been released.
Directed by Irish filmmaker Lorcan Finnegan, the film stars Jesse Eisenberg and Imogen Poots as Tom and Gemma, a young couple looking for the perfect home, who find themselves trapped in a mysterious labyrinth-like neighborhood of identical houses. One day, their life takes an unexpected turn when they find a baby boy in a cardboard box in front of their house and are asked to raise that child for a chance to be released.
The cast also includes Jonathan Aris as the real estate agent and Senan Jennings as the boy.
The trailer gives viewers a glimpse into the couple’s life, presenting, at the same time, some of the positive reviews the film has received. “A nerve-jangling finely crafted thriller,” “Fascinating performances by Imogen Poots and Jesse Eisenberg,” “Maintains a chokehold of suspense from end to end,” “compelling, apocalyptic and invigorating,” “smart and gripping,” onscreen lines read throughout the trailer.
The film, which premiered at the Cannes Film Festival in summer 2019, is scheduled to be released by Saban Films in select US theaters + on VOD starting March 27th.
