Things get strange in the trailer for A24's space thriller High Life

High Life Claire Denis Juliette Binoche

I don't know what I just sat through. I know it said it's a trailer for a space thriller called HIGH LIFE, which is going to be released soon by distributor A24, but it mainly just assaulted my senses with a series of strange images in which people were acting weird and getting naked. Well, I can't say I wasn't intrigued by it all.

The film was directed by Claire Denis from a screenplay written by Denis, Jean-Pol Fargeau, Geoff Cox, and Andrew Litvack, and the A24 website offers a synopsis to let us know what this is all about:

Monte and his baby daughter are the last survivors of a damned and dangerous mission to deep space. The crew—death-row inmates led by a doctor with sinister motives—has vanished. As the mystery of what happened onboard the ship is unraveled, father and daughter must rely on each other to survive as they hurtle toward the oblivion of a black hole.

Robert Pattinson, Juliette Binoche, Mia Goth, and Andre Benjamin star.

HIGH LIFE is set to reach theatres on April 12th. Check out the trailer below and see if this is a movie you'd like to watch on the big screen.
