Dystopian ‘The Lobster’ Trailer Stars Colin Farrell


The Lobster has the chance to be unlike any movie you have ever come across. Starring Colin Farrell and Rachel Weisz, this dystopian comedy/drama features an unusual plot — single people are sent away to find a romantic partner, and if they are unable to find a suitable mate, they become beasts and are sent into “The Woods.”

It borders on lunacy from a plot perspective, but if the audience is able to fully invest in this alternate world that gives ample warning by labeling itself a dystopian movie, The Lobster might work. Various film festivals have already praised the movie.

The Lobster has various release dates: September 27 in the United States, September 30 in Canada, and during mid-October in the United Kingdom. The dates are largely different because Farrell’s movie will be premiering at a selection of film festivals.

Farrell and Weisz are typically reliable for a great performance. Behind this pair and the inclusion of John C. Reilly, The Lobster warrants a chance on its cast and unique premise alone.
