The Lighthouse Trailer Starring Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson

Earning rave reviews coming out of Cannes, Robert Eggers’ follow-up to The Witch looks to be another impressive cinematic gem albeit one that is probably even less accessible to mainstream viewers. The Lighthouse is a black-and-white psychodrama that revolves around two lighthouse keepers on a remote island at the turn of the 19th century. We are hearing that Willem Dafoe and Robert Pattinson deliver stunning performances and the movie itself has a gothic horror vibe while defying easy categorization. It seems a bit reminiscent of Ben Wheatley’s A Field in England, although perhaps with a little more focus. The Lighthouse hits select theatres on Oct. 18th; check out the first trailer below and see what you think.

    Man that looks awesome! Dafoe at his best! Academy award? And some cred to RP…working his acting chops! Looks promising for Batman!

    It doesn’t look like this pair are taking their job seriously…I predict shipwrecks.
