The first trailer for Roman Polanski’s Carnage has gone online and the movie looks terrific. Based on Yasmina Reza’s play God of Carnage, the story follows two sets of parents who come together to discuss a fight between their children. However, what should be a simply discussion over a trivial matter falls to pieces and this trailer does a great job of showing the influence of Who’s Afraid of Virginia Woolf? mixed with lots of humor and a little bit of drama. It’s not the kind of film audiences expect from Polanski and that’s partially what makes it so exciting. The other part comes from the great cast of Jodie Foster, John C. Reilly, Christoph Waltz, and Kate Winslet.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer. Carnage will play at the Venice Film Festival and the New York Film Festival. It opens December 16th.
