Anne Hathaway offers Matthew McConaughey $10 million to drop her husband in the ocean with the sharks in the latest trailer from Aviron Pictures’ Serenity. The new trailer also teases “there is a place you can escape your past as long as you follow every rule. Truth lies beneath the surface.”
The thriller was written and directed by Steven Knight, the Oscar nominated screenwriter of 2002’s Dirty Pretty Things. Knight’s credits as a writer also include The Girl in the Spider’s Web, Allied, and Burnt.
In addition to Oscar winner Matthew McConaughey (Dallas Buyers Club) and Oscar winner Anne Hathaway (Les Misérables), the cast includes Jason Clarke (Dawn of the Planet of the Apes), Oscar nominee Diane Lane (Unfaithful), two-time Oscar nominee Djimon Hounsou (Blood Diamond, In America), and Jeremy Strong (Succession).
Writer/director Steven Knight, Greg Shapiro, and Guy Heeley served as producers.
Aviron Pictures is set to release Serenity in theaters on January 25, 2019.
The Serenity Plot:
“From the creative mind of Oscar nominee Steven Knight comes a daringly original, sexy, stylized thriller. Baker Dill (McConaughey) is a fishing boat captain leading tours off a tranquil, tropical enclave called Plymouth Island. His quiet life is shattered, however, when his ex-wife Karen (Hathaway) tracks him down with a desperate plea for help. She begs Dill to save her – and their young son – from her new, violent husband (Clarke) by taking him out to sea on a fishing excursion, only to throw him to the sharks and leave him for dead. Karen’s appearance thrusts Dill back into a life he’d tried to forget, and as he struggles between right and wrong, his world is plunged into a new reality that may not be all that it seems.”
