Universal Pictures has just released the UK poster and trailer for Thoroughbreds, which debuted at the BFI London Film Festival this week. The film has a release date set for March 2018, and stars Olivia Cooke, Anya Taylor-Joy, Anton Yelchin, and Paul Sparks.
Here’s the synopsis.
Childhood friends Lily and Amanda reconnect in suburban Connecticut after years of growing apart. Lily has turned into a polished, upper-class teenager, with a fancy boarding school on her transcript and a coveted internship on her resume; Amanda has developed a sharp wit and her own particular attitude, but all in the process of becoming a social outcast. Though they initially seem completely at odds, the pair bond over Lily’s contempt for her oppressive stepfather, Mark, and as their friendship grows, they begin to bring out one another’s most destructive tendencies. Their ambitions lead them to hire a local hustler, Tim, and take matters into their own hands to set their lives straight.
Check out the first trailer below, and the poster above. Thoroughbreds opens on the 9th March 2018.
