Emily Browning's life is anything but a fairy tale in the trailer for Sleeping Beauty

04.14.2011

Well hello creeper trailer of the day!

The trailer for SLEEPING BEAUTY is probably more terrifying than most horror films of late. Why? Um, probably due to the fact that guys are sexing up Emily Browning while she's asleep. Is she in a Roofie coma? Actually, she sort of is. From what I've been reading, Browning's character joins this high-end club that specializes in a certain kind of fetish. Browning takes strong drugs that knock her out then men have their way with her without her remembering it in the morning.

It's all just kind of weird. Did I mention it was creepy? Novelist turned director Julia Leigh was behind the camera on this one and wrote the screenplay for it as well.

Check out the trailer below. Just to warn you, it might be a little NSFW.

Synopsis:

"Death-haunted, quietly reckless, Lucy is a young university student who takes a job as a Sleeping Beauty. In the Sleeping Beauty Chamber old men seek an erotic experience that requires Lucy’s absolute submission. This unsettling task starts to bleed into Lucy’s daily life and she develops an increasing need to know what happens to her when she is asleep."

Extra Tidbit: Mia Wasikowska was originally cast in the lead but dropped for JANE EYRE.

So glad to see emily browning doing different stuff, she's such a beautiful talented actress. :) and it's nice to see art house films still being made that challenge the mind. I'll be checking this out for sure.

And I agree with you cuttro13, definitely getting a Eyes Wide Shut vibe.

Am I the only one getting an "Eyes Wide Shut" vibe from this??
Could be interesting....as long as it isn't too self-important.

I like that Emily Browning is reaching out to more adult roles. She's a talented actress and this seems suitably adult for her. However, this gives off the appearance of one of those art house films for the sake of being an art house film. I hope this isn't as conceited as it comes off.

Looks great, but...

I already saw this movie 12 years ago in college. It was called "every sorority house on a Friday night". Still playing, I hear...

That looks neat and all, but do they HAVE to call it that? In four years my kid's gonna say: DAD! Let's get that, it's Sleeping Beauty...modern stylie! ME: Sorry, bitch. It's not. It's a bizarre hooker movie. KID: But that's not what it says, dickhead. ME: I'm aware of what it says, but they do this thing where they use the names of lovable stories and freak us out with them. Trust me, it's about weird hookers.
KID: What means

KID: What means hookers, daddy?
Maybe I'm dumb, but it bugs me a bit.

The original Sleeping Beauty story is a lot closer to this than Disney's pile of shit. In the original story, the princess gets some flax stuck under her nail and falls into a coma. An adventuring king/prince finds her, rapes (and impregnates) her, and goes on with his adventuring; she gives birth to twins while still comatose and is roused when one of the babies sucks the splinter out of her finger while trying to nurse. Some versions have her eat her own children upon discovering them.

Cool

This is similar to what Jeffery Dean Morgan did to Hilary Swank in the Resident.

This is totally NOT what had in mind when I heard about this movie. I was thinking it was going to be a little more sci-fi with crazy lighting and club music. This looks scary as hell!!
I'll watch but only with the lights on!
