I'm still trying to determine exactly what the tone of this film is going to be, but it's safe to say that I'm in all the way. A24 is one of the few studios that can do no wrong in my book, and if they think that Lowery has made some kind of instant masterpiece here, I'll trust them. I wasn't a huge fan of his work on Pete's Dragon, but there's something irresistibly strange and thrillingly minimalist about this trailer. The classic bedsheet design of the titular ghost already feels iconic in its own way, and I'm always excited for any movie that brings together Rooney Mara and Casey Affleck. There are some simply beautiful shots in this trailer, and I love the unique aspect ratio as well. As always with these arthouse favorites, I can't guarantee that I'll enjoy A Ghost Story. It could be just too off-kilter for my tastes. But this trailer truly has my interest, and I can't wait to see if the film delivers on its astronomical buzz.
A Ghost Story arrives in limited release on July 7. Also, check out the terrific new poster from A24 below!
