NSFW: First Official Red-Band Trailer For The Highly Anticipated GREEN ROOM!

The first official red-band trailer has dropped for writer/director Jeremy Saulnier’s latest film GREEN ROOM. If you’ve been following the filmmaker’s career thus far, then you know to expect not necessarily a traditional “horror” movie by any means, but something dark & twisted. His filmography includes his stark, dark comedy MURDER PARTY, followed by the really emotionally-driven vengeance thriller BLUE RUIN. GREEN ROOM looks just as intense.

Short version – a young punk band end up playing a pretty hostile venue as they’re winding down from their tour, witness something horrific in the backstage green room and are surrounded by a bunch of neo-Nazis led by Patrick Stewart (!) who can’t let them leave the club alive. Have a look for yourself.

GREEN ROOM arrives in theaters in NY and LA on April 15th, then everywhere the following week on April 29th courtesy of Studio A24. Below is the full synopsis.

Green-Room

Synopsis: GREEN ROOM is a brilliantly crafted and wickedly fun horror-thriller starring Patrick Stewart as a diabolical club owner who squares off against an unsuspecting but resilient young punk band. Down on their luck punk rockers The Ain’t Rights are finishing up a long and unsuccessful tour, and are about to call it quits when they get an unexpected booking at an isolated, run-down club deep in the backwoods of Oregon. What seems merely to be a third-rate gig escalates into something much more sinister when they witness an act of violence backstage that they weren’t meant to see. Now trapped backstage, they must face off against the club’s depraved owner, Darcy Banker (Stewart), a man who will do anything to protect the secrets of his nefarious enterprise. But while Darcy and his henchmen think the band will be easy to get rid of, The Ain’t Rights prove themselves much more cunning and capable than anyone expected, turning the tables on their unsuspecting captors and setting the stage for the ultimate life-or-death showdown. Intense, emotional, and ingeniously twisted, Green Room is genre filmmaking at its best and most original. Saulnier continues to build his reputation as one of the most exciting and distinctive directors working today, with a movie that’s completely different from his previous, highly acclaimed Blue Ruin, but which is just as risk-taking and even more full of twists. The entire cast deliver first-rate performances, but Patrick Stewart gives a transformative and brilliantly devious turn as Darcy-elegant yet lethal, droll yet terrifying, Stewart makes the film simply unforgettable.
