John and the Hole Trailer

There are lots of things you can put in a hole in the ground…

I find the premise for the psychological thriller John and the Hole, intriguing and charmingly disturbing. The story revolves around John, a young boy who has trapped his family in a hole in the ground. Judging by the trailer it seems to boil down to that John wants to know how it’s like to be an adult and when one stops being a kid, which makes him take radical action.

The cast looks promising with Michael C. Hall, Jennifer Ehle and Taissa Farmiga as the unfortunate family, with Charlie Shotwell from Eli and Captain Fantastic as John. Pascual Sisto directed from a story written by Nicolás Giacobone, who wrote Birdman.

John and the Hole premieres on August 6. Check out the elegant trailer below and see what you think.
