Very similar to Ari Aster’s MIDSOMMAR, HBO’s upcoming restricted sequence THE THIRD DAY finds its lead character turning into trapped in what first seems like a distant paradise, earlier than the veil is lifted and it is made clear that each one just isn’t what it appears.

For these trying to tune in, you must know that THE THIRD DAY is is split into two elements: “Summer time” and “Winter.” In “Summer time,” one man (Jude Regulation) visits a mysterious island off the British coast and discovers a bunch of inhabitants intent on preserving their house at any value. Within the second half, aka “Winter,” a strong-willed outsider (Naomie Harris) involves the island searching for solutions — however as an alternative causes a battle to determine its destiny.

Together with Regulation and Harris, the restricted sequence additionally stars Katherine Waterston (the FANTASTIC BEASTS movie sequence), Emily Watson (CHERNOBYL), and Paddy Considine (THE OUTSIDER), amongst others.

The present, which arrives as an HBO and Sky co-production, was created by Felix Barrett and Dennis Kelly. “Summer time” is written by Kelly and directed by Marc Munden, whereas “Winter” is written by Package de Wall, Dean O’Loughlin and Kelly and directed by Philippa Lowthorpe. The sequence is executive-produced by Barrett, Kelly, Dede Gardner and Jeremy Kleiner.

Dammit, it is reveals like this that make me want that I used to be an HBO subscriber. Personally, this trailer for THE THIRD DAY is giving me some IN THE MOUTH OF MADNESS and THE WICKER MAN vibes. The footage on show right here has the sequence trying unusual as hell, and that is just about cat nip for my style in movie and tv. Oh properly, I suppose I am going to have to attend for it to reach on Blu-ray, or maybe I am going to join a free trial simply so I can test it out. Both approach, I feel this seems cool as hell.

The primary episode of THE THIRD DAY will premiere by way of HBO on Could 11.
