There is so much anxiety in the world at the moment. But for some of us it’s good to know movies are still being announced. It’s a nice diversion from the worry and stress. The South by Southwest film festival was cancelled and several notable movies missed their world premieres. One was “The Quarry”, a mystery thriller starring Shea Whigham, Michael Shannon, and Catalina Sandino Moreno. That cast alone was enough for me.
The movie’s trailer dropped last week and it looks promising. Shannon plays a small town police chief who begins to suspect a new preacher (Whigham) isn’t who he claims to be. In addition to the cast I love the setting and the trailer builds a good sense of suspense. This could be a tense, fun southern noir.
“The Quarry” is set for an April 17th release in select theaters (maybe) and on-demand. Check out the trailer below and let me know if you’ll be seeing it or taking a pass.
