Back in 2014 we were utterly blown away by a small American thriller called Blue Ruin which showed at JDIFF. Now director Jeremy Saulnier is back with Green Room, and it looks even better.
With star power like Patrick Stewart and Anton Yelchin and a much bigger budget, he's crafted a story about a band which is doing an ill-advised gig in the middle of nowhere when they get involved with a group of new Nazis with a secret to keep. The musicians become trapped in their green room but its only a matter of time before someone gets in, unless they take the fight to the attackers.
Teaser videos have been released before but today sees the release of the first red band trailer and its definitely not safe for work and one of the most intense things we've seen in ages. Give it a watch below, but be warned - it's very, very intense...
The film premiered at Cannes all the way back in May 2015 and is set for a full release in the US in early April 2016. Before that Irish folks will get a chance to see it locally at the Audi Dublin International Film Festival - it's screening on the 24th of February at 6.15pm (surely a midnight madness slot would have been better!?) and you can book right here.
