Joaquin Phoenix is Terrified in New Trailer for Beau is Afraid

Director Ari Aster has been behind some of the most celebrated horror films with Midsommar and Hereditary, but he’s set to go a different genre with Beau is Afraid starring Joaquin Phoenix. The movie is set to come out later this month, and we have a new trailer that might give us a better idea about the story.

Check this out:

Here’s the official description:

A paranoid man embarks on an epic odyssey to get home to his mother in this bold and ingeniously depraved new film from writer-director Ari Aster.”

The marketing for the film has admittedly been vague, but the movie doesn’t seem to be a horror film like what we can usually expect from a director like Aster. Now it seems that this film could be closer to something like Eternal Sunshine of a Spotless Mind with the trippy visuals going alongside some inner character turmoil.

Aster has described the film, “I wanted to make a film where it feels like you’ve been through a life—or even through a person… It’s like a Jewish Lord of the Rings, but he’s just going to his mom’s house.”

With a lot of fans excited for Phoenix’s Joker return with Folie a Deux, Beau is Afraid should be another interesting character study featuring another powerhouse performance from Phoenix. Hopefully A24 manages to keep the film’s plot a mystery until it actually comes out in theaters.

Beau is Afraid comes to theaters on April 21.
