‘How to Talk to Girls at Parties’ Trailer and Poster: Punk Rock and Aliens

A new trailer and poster have arrived for A24’s How to Talk to Girls at Parties. The new two and a half minute trailer sets up the world of 1970s punk mixed with a small alien invasion. Directed by John Cameron Mitchell, the twisted romance is based on a short story by Neil Gaiman.

How to Talk to Girls at Parties stars Elle Fanning (The Neon Demon, I Think We’re Alone Now), Alex Sharp (To the Bone), Nicole Kidman (Big Little Lies, Killing of a Sacred Deer), Ruth Wilson (The Affair, I Am the Pretty Thing That Lives in the House), and Matt Lucas (Doctor Who, Alice Through the Looking Glass).

A24’s targeting a summer 2018 theatrical release.

The Plot: From the raucous dual imaginations of fantasy laureate Neil Gaiman (American Gods, Coraline) and glam-rock multi-hyphenate John Cameron Mitchell (Hedwig and the Angry Inch, Shortbus) comes the electrifying and singular pop extravaganza film, How to Talk to Girls at Parties. Enn (Alex Sharp) is a shy suburban London teenager in 1977, sneaking out with his best friends to after-hours punk parties. One night they stumble upon a bizarre gathering of sexy teenagers who seem like they are from another planet. In fact, they are from another planet, visiting Earth to complete a mysterious rite of passage. That doesn’t stop Enn from falling madly in love with Zan (Elle Fanning), a beautiful and rebellious alien teenager who, despite her allegiance to her strange colony, is fascinated by Enn.

Together they embark on a delirious adventure through the kinetic punk rock world of 1970s London, inadvertently setting off a series of events that will lead to the ultimate showdown of punks vs. aliens, and test the limits of how far each of them will go for true love.
