“Never take your mistress on an annual guys’ getaway, especially one devoted to hunting – a violent lesson for three wealthy married men.” Neon has debuted an official red band trailer for an action thriller titled Revenge, from newcomer Coralie Fargeat making her feature directorial debut. This played to some rave reviews at Fantastic Fest and TIFF last year, and seems like a gritty film with a helluva pitch (see the one-line synopsis at the start of this post).
Matilda Lutz stars as Jen, with a cast including Kevin Janssens, Vincent Colombe, and Guillaume Bouchède. It’s described as a “razor-sharp feminist subversion of the revenge-thriller”, that “gloriously blurs the lines of vengeance and survival while simultaneously delivering a ferocious dissection of gender and genre.” Sounds awesome, doesn’t it? Yes, you might want to take a look.
Revenge stars Matilda Lutz as Jen, the girlfriend of a dangerous man with even more dangerous friends who ends up clinging to life in the middle of the desert, left for dead by this gang of assholes. But rather than keel over and die, Jen comes back, and she only has one thing on her mind, and it involves painting the desert red, just like the restricted trailer for the movie that just debuted online. There’s a lot of blood in the red band trailer, but there’s also a green band trailer if you want to play it safe.
Here’s the official red band trailer (+ original trailer / poster) for Coralie Fargeat’s Revenge, on YouTube:
Obviously, this film from director Coralie Fargeat (making her feature directorial debut) is going to be intense and bloody as hell. Jen is showing no mercy when it comes to getting revenge on these men who left her for dead. And as you can see by all the female critics praising the movie in the trailer, it’s quite the empowering thriller that gives us another tough woman on the big screen.

In fact, one particular scene during the film’s premiere at TIFF caused someone to have a seizure because of how unsettling it was.
