The first trailer for Kinds of Kindness, the next film helmed by Yorgos Lanthimos, starring Emma Stone, has been released. The movie will open in US theaters on June 21st.

The announcement was made by Searchlight, the indie studio that’s distributing the film.

Though the plot remains under wraps, Kinds of Kindness is an anthology film that reunites Stone with her Poor Things co-stars, Willem Dafoe and Margaret Qualley, as well as The Favourite actor Joe Alwyn. Jesse Plemons, Hong Chau, Hunter Schafer, and Mamoudou Athie will round out the cast.

Lanthimos penned the screenplay with Efthimis Filippou, with whom he co-wrote the dark thrillers and absurdist comedies, The Lobster, Killing of a Sacred Deer, and Dogtooth. The movie, originally titled And, was shot in New Orleans in late 2022.

The Athens-born director teased what audiences can expect from the new contemporary film set in the US, during a British Film Institute event in January.

“It’s three different stories, and we’re finishing the edit right now, and I still can’t tell you exactly what it is about,” he said at the time.

“But I also wouldn’t want to tell you what I thought the stories are about because it just makes it so small,” he added. “I try not to even think about it during the process because I’m afraid that it will make my choices more narrow.”

Kinds of Kindness comes after Lanthimos and Stone Oscars

The news comes as Lanthimos’ Poor Things won four Oscars from eleven nominations earlier this week, including Stone’s second Academy Award trophy for best actress following 2016’s La La Land. Poor Things also won best production design, costume design, and makeup and hairstyling.

The pair previously worked together on 2018’s The Favourite, which landed ten Oscar nominations, including best supporting actress for Stone, with the movie’s lone win going to Olivia Colman for lead actress.

In between the two highly praised films, the two worked together in Greece for Bleat, a surrealistic black-and-white short film about a grieving widow that’s only screened a handful of times, as it requires a live orchestra.

They are already in talks to arrange their sixth movie, a remake of the South Korean fantasy comedy Save the Green Planet.

Stone has spoken about her creative partnership with Lanthimos, saying: “Yorgos feels like a lot of his process of working with people or putting people in his films has to do with who they are as a person. It’s not just performance-based.”
