Focus Features has released the second trailer for its upcoming drama thriller Thoroughbreds and it doubles down on the twisted yet hilarious weirdness of the first trailer. “The only thing worse than being incompetent, or being unkind, or being evil, is being indecisive,” says Olivia Cooke’s Amanda.
Directed by Cory Finley from a screenplay he also wrote, the drama thriller stars Anya Taylor-Joy (“Split”), Olivia Cooke (“Me and Earl and the Dying Girl”), Paul Sparks (Netflix’s “House of Cards”) and Anton Yelchin (“Star Trek” films) in his last role before his tragic death last year.
The film has so far been a festival favorite. Early this year, the movie premiered at Sundance Film Festival, and is scheduled for release on select theaters March 9, 2018.
Here’s the film’s official synopsis:
Childhood friends Lily and Amanda reconnect in suburban Connecticut after years of growing apart. Lily has turned into a polished, upper-class teenager, with a fancy boarding school on her transcript and a coveted internship on her resume; Amanda has developed a sharp wit and her own particular attitude, but all in the process of becoming a social outcast. Though they initially seem completely at odds, the pair bond over Lily’s contempt for her oppressive stepfather, Mark, and as their friendship grows, they begin to bring out one another’s most destructive tendencies. Their ambitions lead them to hire a local hustler, Tim, and take matters into their own hands to set their lives straight.
