Penélope Cruz and Javier Bardem have told TheWrap how they were in “terrifying pain” while shooting their latest film, “Everybody Knows.” And in this first English language trailer for the film, that intensity shows.
Asghar Farhadi’s “Everybody Knows” is in Spanish, but Bardem narrates the opening to this first trailer in English, which is followed by an otherwise dialogue-free but none the less gripping first look.
“Sometimes the past, doesn’t always stay in the past,” Bardem says over an image of Cruz creeping into a dark attic before shrieking in agony.
The film is about a woman who returns to her hometown near Madrid, Spain, for her sister’s wedding, but endures a state of panic when the sibling goes missing. Ricardo Darin also co-stars.
“Everybody Knows” is the Iranian director Farhadi’s foll0w-up to “The Salesman,” and before that “A Separation,” both of which won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language film. After playing on the opening night of Cannes, which our critic referred to as one of the strongest opening night films in many years of the festival, “Everybody Knows” was picked up by Focus Features, who will open it for a brief, Oscar qualifying run beginning Nov. 30.
The film will open wide starting on Feb. 8, 2019. Watch the first trailer above:
