The trailer for Jane Campion’s The Power of the Dog is here and I couldn’t be more excited!
Having recently read the Tomas Savage-authored novel that this film is based on, I have to say that the trailer perfectly captures the story’s ominous atmosphere. Kirsten Dunst appears to be the perfect choice for Rose and, though I had some doubts when the casting was announced, Benedict Cumberbatch appears to be properly menacing and charismatic in the role of Phil.
Jesse Plemons isn’t really highlighted in this trailer but I think he might be the actor who walks away with the most acclaim. The role of George Burbank feels like it was written for Plemons. I can’t wait to see what he does with it.
The Power of the Dog will soon premiere on Netflix! Judging by the trailer, it may be one worth seeing on the big screen.
