‘Mandy’ Gets First Trailer

by Mark McCurley

Mandy, one of the most shocking selections of the 2018 Sundance Film Festival, has released its first trailer.

Directed and written by Panos Cosmatos with co-writer Aaron Stewart-Ahn, Mandy is one of the last films scored by Icelandic composer Jóhann Jóhannsson who died on February 9, 2018 due to unknown causes.

The film stars Nicolas Cage, known for his 1995 Oscar-winning performance in Leaving Las Vegas and other supernatural roles such as Ghost Rider and Drive Angry. Andrea Riseborough, known for her performances in Oblivion, Birdman and TV’s Waco, plays the titular character Mandy.

Mandy is set somewhere near the Shadow Mountains in the primal wilderness circa 1983, Red Miller (Cage) has fallen for the deceptively charming Mandy Bloom (Riseborough). When Red thinks the life he has made for himself is everything he dreamed of, it all comes horrifyingly crashing down when a sinister cult and supernatural creatures viciously desecrate his peaceful home. A man now broken, Red lives on only to hunt down these maniacal villains and exact sweet vengeance.

Other cast members include Linus Roache as Jeremiah Sand, Richard Brake as The Chemist, Ned Dennehy as Brother Swan, Olwen Fouere as Mother Marlene and Hayley Saywell as Sis.

Mandy is set to premier in theaters on September 14 by RLJE Films.
