A trailer for first time director Carl Tibbetts’ thriller Retreat is now available online. Starring Cillian Murphy, Jamie Bell, and Thandie Newton, the film tells the story of a couple (Murphy and Newton) who retreat to an island in an attempt to patch up their relationship following a family tragedy. While shades of Lars von Trier’s Antichrist come to mind at first glance, the trailer establishes Retreat‘s main threat as coming in the form of an injured Jamie Bell who washes onto the island warning of a fatal airborne disease. Not to be the bearer of bad news, but it should also be noted that there aren’t any talking foxes in the two-minute cut.
Hit the jump to check out the trailer for yourself. Sony Pictures will distribute Retreat in North America although a release date is still withstanding.
