It’s been more than six months since I saw (and loved) Green Room, Jeremy Saulnier’s follow-up to Blue Ruin starring Patrick Stewart as the leader of a local neo-Nazi sleeper cell. And in less than two months, you too will have a chance to be as cool as me, when Green Room opens April 29th (April 15th if you’re cool enough to live in a cool place like New York or L.A.).
In the meantime, we have the exclusive on this new “motion poster,” featuring the voice and visage of none other than P-Stew Picard himself. MOTION POSTER? ENGAGE.
Here’s the official synopsis, from A24:
GREEN ROOM is a brilliantly crafted and wickedly fun horror-thriller starring Patrick Stewart as a diabolical club owner who squares off against an unsuspecting but resilient young punk band. Down on their luck punk rockers The Ain’t Rights are finishing up a long and unsuccessful tour, and are about to call it quits when they get an unexpected booking at an isolated, run-down club deep in the backwoods of Oregon. What seems merely to be a third-rate gig escalates into something much more sinister when they witness an act of violence backstage that they weren’t meant to see.
Not for nothing, but I also have an upcoming interview with Jeremy Saulnier and Blue Ruin star Macon Blair, who plays a kind of skinhead functionary in this one. Running with the color theme, I’m told their next film will be called The Yellow Peril. It’s about your mother’s underpants. Maybe.
