A24 has released a trailer for upcoming supernatural drama “A Ghost Story,” four months before it opens on July 7. From the trailer we see a distraught Rooney Mara dealing with the tragedy of her deceased spouse played by Casey Affleck, often manifested as a simple ghost in a bed sheet. We see life through the eyes of the ghost. I for one I’m happy about the the unusual depicting of a ghost in a sheet, it’s quite relatably different from the usual haunting of human spirits as ghosts. After seeing the poster and trailer, I got hooked in and I can’t wait to see this movie. It looks to be one of the best films of 2017.
In this singular exploration of legacy, love, loss, and theenormity of existence, a recently deceased, white-sheeted ghost returns to his suburban home to try and reconnect with his bereft wife.
The film had its world premiere at the Sundance Film Festival on January 22, 2017 but it is scheduled to be released in theatres on July 7, 2017.
