‘Promising Young Woman’ Trailer: A Delicious New Take on Revenge

Focus Features has released another official trailer for Promising Young Woman. The rape revenge black comedy comes from Emerald Fennell (head writer of Killing Eve) in her feature directorial debut and stars Carey Mulligan.

I have been wanting to see this film for almost a year now. When the first trailer dropped late last year, I immediately knew it was the type of dark comedy I like watching. The ones that can blend the genres of psychological thriller, horror, revenge, and comedy into one convincing motion picture.

I haven’t seen a lot of Mulligan films, but she looks great in this role. I’ll definitely be checking this out once it hits theaters this Christmas.

Plot Synopsis:

From visionary director Emerald Fennell (Killing Eve) comes a delicious new take on revenge. Everyone said Cassie (Carey Mulligan) was a promising young woman… until a mysterious event abruptly derailed her future. But nothing in Cassie’s life is what it appears to be: she’s wickedly smart, tantalizingly cunning, and she’s living a secret double life by night. Now, an unexpected encounter is about to give Cassie a chance to right the wrongs of the past in this thrilling and wildly entertaining story.

Promising Young Woman hits theaters December 25, 2020.
