Ahead of its Sundance virtual premiere this month, director Hanna Bergholm’s Hatching has birthed a trailer that teases the monstrous horror in store!
In the film: “12-year-old gymnast Tinja tries desperately to please her mother, a woman obsessed with presenting the image of a perfect family life to the world through her popular blog. Then, one night, Tinja finds a strange egg. She hides it, she keeps it warm. And when it hatches, what emerges is beyond belief.”
Siiri Solalinna, Sophia Heikkila, Jani Volanen, Oiva Ollila, and Reino Nordin star in Hatching, which was written by Ilja Rautsi. Gustav Hoegen (Jurassic World) served as animatronics director, with Conor O’Sullivan (Game of Thrones) supervising special makeup effects.
The cracks are starting to show—but Hatching won’t arrive in theatres and on VOD until April 29th. In the meantime, check out the trailer below.
