A24’s just debuted the official trailer for the dramatic film, A Ghost Story. Written and directed by David Lowery (Pete’s Dragon, Ain’t Them Bodies Saints), A Ghost Story stars Oscar winner Casey Affleck (Manchester by the Sea) and Rooney Mara (Lion, Carol). A24’s set a July 7, 2017 theatrical release date.

The Plot: With A Ghost Story, acclaimed director David Lowery returns with a singular exploration of legacy, loss, and the essential human longing for meaning and connection. Recently deceased, a white-sheeted ghost (Affleck) returns to his suburban home to console his bereft wife (Mara), only to find that in his spectral state he has become unstuck in time, forced to watch passively as the life he knew and the woman he loves slowly slip away.

Increasingly unmoored, the ghost embarks on a cosmic journey through memory and history, confronting life’s ineffable questions and the enormity of existence. An unforgettable meditation on love and grief, A Ghost Story emerges ecstatic and surreal—a wholly-unique experience that lingers long after the credits roll.
