In a dystopian near future, single people, according to the laws of The City, are taken to The Hotel, where they are obliged to find a romantic partner in forty-five days or are transformed into beasts and sent off into The Woods.
At last, we have a proper trailer for The Lobster! For those of you who haven’t been following along, on our podcast we’re currently counting down the days until the release of the films that we think might be the most batshit insane of the year. We’ve discussed movies like Jupiter Ascending, Big Game, and Pixels, and now the last one on the list that we have to see is The Lobster, which TK nominated. Honestly, I think he might win it, because this looks thoroughly weird. “Kafka-esque rom-com” is not a genre that has ever really been done. But will it be truly insane? We’ll find out soon, at long last.
The Lobster gets a UK release on October 16, 2015.
