The Playlist have dropped the latest red-band trailer for the upcoming period drama Tulip Fever, a film which has been completed for a couple of years now. Alicia Vikander and Christoph Waltz lead the huge cast, which also includes Holliday Grainger, Jack O’Connell, Zach Galifianakis, Dame Judi Dench, Matthew Morrison, Tom Hollander, Cara Delevingne, Cressida Bonas, and David Harewood.
In 17th Century Amsterdam, an orphaned girl (Alicia Vikander) is forcibly married to a rich and powerful merchant (Christoph Waltz) – an unhappy “arrangement” that saves her from poverty. After her husband commissions a portrait, she begins a passionate affair with the painter (Dane DeHaan), a struggling young artist. Seeking to escape the merchant’s ever-reaching grasp, the lovers risk everything and enter the frenzied tulip bulb market, with the hope that the right bulb will make a fortune and buy their freedom.
Be warned, there’s a lot of nudity in this one, so be a little careful when opening it up at work. Tulip Fever will land in U.S. cinemas on 1st September, though currently does not have one set for the UK. We’ll keep you updated.
