If you haven’t heard of the upcoming film RAW yet, then you haven’t been paying attention!! Raw is written and directed by Julia Ducournau and stars Garance Marillier, Ella Rumpf, Rabah Nait Oufella, Laurent Lucas, Joana Preiss, and Bouli Lanners. Dig on the plot crunch:
Everyone in Justine’s family is a vet. And a vegetarian. At sixteen she’s a brilliant student starting out at veterinary school where she experiences a decadent, merciless and dangerously seductive world. Desperate to fit in, she strays from her family principles and eats RAW meat for the first time. Justine will soon face the terrible and unexpected consequences as her true self begins to emerge…
There have been reports of people vomiting and fainting in theaters after watching the trailer. I don’t know about that (sounds a bit William Castle-esque), but the trailer is indeed pretty bad ass. Check it out:
A previous clip was released, titled “Rookies:”
There is now a new clip, “Blue and Yellow Make Green,” In it, veterinary school student Justine plays a game of ‘Seven Minutes in Heaven’ with a bit of a twist. The one rule is that the participants – one covered in yellow paint, the other in blue – can only emerge from the closet when they are both entirely green, but green isn’t the only color on Justine’s mind. Yikes!!
I don’t know about you, but I’m really looking forward to Raw. Raw hits select theaters March 10, 2017 and will then have a worldwide release this Spring.
