See the New Trailer for Sofia Coppola’s “Sexy, Fun and Dark” ‘The Beguiled’

Sofia Coppola’s

The Beguiled 

is a remake of the 1970s Clint Eastwood film and seems to have all of the hallmarks of a Coppola feature including healthy doses of eroticism and female empowerment.

The Civil War-set story is about an injured Union soldier (Colin Farrell) who takes refuge at an all-girls boarding school in the South, where seduction quickly turns into something more sinister. Nicole Kidman, Kirsten Dunst and Elle Fanning co-star.

“I had seen the 1971 film with Clint Eastwood and it was such a far-out premise. I loved the girls’ school, southern gothic style and sexual tension in the hot south,” Coppola said at

CinemaCon

 as reported by

IndieWire

. “The story is just really intriguing and sexy and fun and dark. It takes a dark turn you wouldn’t expect.”

The film will premiere at Cannes and have its theatrical release on June 23rd. Watch the new trailer below.
