What the trailer for Bones and All about history
The trailer is not very explicit about the plot, but it highlights some key elements of the film, Maren and Lee fall in love, revealing a difference from the books where their relationship is less defined. Luckily, it seems that the choice to add a love story has paid offas many praised the film for its juxtaposition of love against the backdrop of Reagan’s America and the brutal cannibalism at the center of the film.
Most of the murders appear to have been done by the cannibal played by Chalamet, but in the trailer, Maren goes bloody too.
From slitting someone’s throat in a cornfield to beating a person with a wrench, the trailer promises a lot of blood.
Guadagnino has already directed a Suspiria remake with Dakota Johnson and not only did he demonstrate his ability to build tension and suspense, but the climax of the film was a bloody visual blast. It remains to be seen how it will be Bones and All, but if the trailer is any indication, Lee and Maren won’t be the only ones to binge when the film hits theaters on November 23, 2022.
