Gore Verbinski is back in the horror game with the psychological thriller A Cure for Wellness, and we got the first trailer right here.
Gore Verbinski hasn’t made a horror movie since the 2002 US remake of The Ring. However, he is most definitely back with A Cure for Wellness.
The first trailer has just been released, and it looks so damn good. To me, this is the best kind of trailer. It sets the mood but doesn’t give away everything. And Verbinski is certainly setting the mood with this very creepy trailer for A Cure to Wellness.
The movie stars Dane DeHaan (Chronicle), Jason Isaacs (Lucius Malfoy in the Harry Potter movies), and Mia Goth (the upcoming Marrowbone).
The script for A Cure to Wellness was written by Justin Haythe. He also wrote the screenplay for Revolutionary Road (based on the novel by Richard Yates), so we’re in good hands.
Here’s the plot for Gore Verbinski’s A Cure for Wellness:
An ambitious young executive is sent to retrieve his company’s CEO from an idyllic but mysterious “wellness center” at a remote location in the Swiss Alps. He soon suspects that the spa’s miraculous treatments are not what they seem. When he begins to unravel its terrifying secrets, his sanity is tested, as he finds himself diagnosed with the same curious illness that keeps all the guests here longing for the cure.
While I first watched the trailer, I couldn’t help but be reminded of Martin Scorsese’s Shutter Island, which isn’t too bad. Still, I’m sure this will very much be its own movie. And we can’t wait!
A Cure for Wellness is out in US theaters on February 11, 2017.
