Foe trailer: Saoirse Ronan sci-fi thriller is coming to theatres in October

A trailer has been released for Foe, a sci-fi thriller starring Saoirse Ronan that’s set to reach theatres in October

Last week, it was announced that Foe, a sci-fi thriller starring Saoirse Ronan (Lady Bird), Paul Mescal (Normal People), and Aaron Pierre (The Underground Railroad), is set to receive a theatrical release on October 6th. Now, with that date just over a month away, a trailer for Foe has arrived online and can be seen in the embed above.

Garth Davis (Lion) directed Foe from a screenplay he wrote with author Iain Reid, based on Reid’s novel of the same name. (You can pick up a copy of Foe at THIS LINK.) This is the second film adaptation of a Reid novel, following Charlie Kaufman’s version of I’m Thinking of Ending Things, which was released through the Netflix streaming service in 2020.

This “taut, sensual, psychological mind-bender” is set in the near future, where corporate power and environmental decay are ravaging the planet. Junior and Hen are a young couple married seven years and living a solitary life on their isolated farm. One night, a stranger named Terrance knocks on their door, bringing news that throws their lives into turmoil: Junior has been randomly selected to travel to a large, experimental space station orbiting Earth. The most unusual part? Arrangements have already been made so that when he leaves, Hen won’t have a chance to miss him, because she won’t be left alone — not even for a moment. Hen will have familiar company that pushes her to make a life-changing decision.

Ronan plays Hen, with Mescal as Junior and Pierre as Terrance.

Davis is producing the film through his I Am That shingle. Kerry Kohansky-Roberts of AC Studios and Emile Sherman and Iain Canning of See-Saw Films are also producing. Reid and Samantha Lang serve as executive producers, while Libby Sharpe is co-producer. Foe is an Anonymous Content Studios production.
