For a few years now, some truly amazing and wonderful stories have hit the big screen from the pages of acclaimed novels, and soon another will be ready to join the list. Award-winning Greek director Yorgos Lanthimos Brings to life a cinematic adaptation of Poor thingswhich puts a unique twist on the classic story of Frankenstein Through the eyes of a resurrected Victorian woman named Bella Baxter. According to a report by Collider, new images have been released from the movie, giving us a first-hand look at Bella’s journey from rebirth through her uniquely liberating new life.
Poor things It is set as a science fiction romance based on the 1992 novel of the same name written by Alasdair Gray. Acclaimed director Yorgos Lanthimos directs the project as director and co-produces alongside Andrew Lowe, Ed Geni, Ali Herting, Dave McCary and Emma Stone, who reunites with Lanthimos for the first time since their award-winning collaboration. Favorite (2018). Tony McNamara, who previously worked with Stone on the live-action adaptation Cruella (2021), writing the screenplay. The film includes a large number of talents, including Emma Stone as Bella Baxter, Willem Dafoe as Dr. Goodwin Baxter, Mark Ruffalo as Duncan Wedderburn, Ramy Youssef as Max McCandless, Jerrod Carmichael as Harry Astley, and Christopher Abbott as Sir aubrey. De la Paul Blessington.
The film’s premise centers on a woman named Bella Baxter (Stone), who experiences a tragic death at a young age but is somehow put back into an infant’s brain by the brilliant, unorthodox scientist Dr. Godwin Baxter (Dafoe). Under his supervision and protection, Bella immediately craves to learn and enjoy the world around her. Yet despite warnings of the dangers of the outside world, Bella longs for exploration and runs away with brilliant-minded lawyer Duncan Wedderburn (Ruffalo) on a journey across multiple continents, free of prejudice and the desire to achieve the liberation she feels for the rest. From the world.
The first photos of Bad Things show Bella’s journey
The first three images released to promote the film show three of the main characters in the story. In the first photo, we see Stone as Bella Baxter in a bright yellow Victorian style dress with long, stunning black hair that contrasts the whole look beautifully. As she looks away, behind her is Max McCandless (Youssef), who shares a look of concern.
In the second photo, Bella is lying happily in her signature yellow dress on a deck chair while on a cruise. Given the time period, this may be one of her continental excursions with Wedderburn (Ruffalo). The color palette of the world around her is a great showcase that showcases Lanthimos’ aesthetic for the movie, at least during Bella’s journey.
The third image offers a completely different transition, as Dr. Goodwin Baxter (Dafoe) front and center in black and white. Resting inside his laboratory on a large wooden chair with his face full of scars, he appears to be contemplating something. In his hand is what appears to be a crudely written letter, possibly from Bella who may have since fled the confines of her home.
Poor things It is set to premiere in theaters later this year on September 8th.
