We’ve already seen a couple of trailers for Gore Verbinski’s A Cure for Wellness, in which a young executive is sent to return his boss from a mysterious Alpine health spa, where all is not as it seems. To help you with your own self-bettering resolutions, this series of promotional videos for the ‘wellness centre’ has been released, giving you a taste of their miraculous treatments.
The awesome Dane DeHaan (Chronicle, Life After Beth) stars as the company employee sent to the spa, with Jason Isaacs as his CEO, alongside Nymphomaniac Vol. II’s Mia Goth (who also stars in the upcoming Suspiria remake) and Celia Imrie (Mary Shelley’s Frankenstein).
An ambitious young executive is sent to retrieve his company’s CEO from an idyllic but mysterious “wellness center” at a remote location in the Swiss Alps. He soon suspects that the spa’s miraculous treatments are not what they seem. When he begins to unravel its terrifying secrets, his sanity is tested, as he finds himself diagnosed with the same curious illness that keeps all the guests here longing for the cure.
Already drawing comparisons to the work of Stanley Kubrick and David Cronenberg, A Cure for Wellness will be good for what ails you when it arrives on February 17th.
