A24 have put out the first poster for Trey Edward Shults’ It Comes at Night, and it’s a creepy, minimalist beaut!
Set for a US release on August 25th, the film finds Animal Kingdom’s Joel Edgerton (pictured in 2015’s The Gift) taking increasingly desperate measures to protect his family from a powerful, malevolent presence that is ripping throughout the world. Mad Max: Fury Road’s Riley Keough, Girls’ Christopher Abbott, The Purge: Anarchy’s Carmen Ejogo and feature newcomer Griffin Robert Faulkner co-star.
A man (Joel Edgerton) learns that the evil stalking his family home may be only a prelude to horrors that come from within. Secure within a desolate home as an unnatural threat terrorizes the world, the tenuous domestic order he has established with his wife and son is put to the ultimate test with the arrival of a desperate young family seeking refuge. Despite the best intentions of both families, paranoia and mistrust boil over as the horrors outside creep ever-closer, awakening something hidden and monstrous within him as he learns that the protection of his family comes at the cost of his soul.
