colonia trailer

The current career choices of Emma Watson and Daniel Brühl deserve some consideration. She is an actress known around the globe for playing a lead character in one of the most popular film franchises of all time. He’s the promising young star of Rush and Inglourious Basterds who will soon be paying his superhero dues as a villain in Captain America: Civil War. Both look to be straddling that fine line between being chasing movie stardom and doing good work in smaller films, carefully selecting projects and roles that won’t pigeonhole them or reduce them to a type. These two are increasingly exciting performers because they’re actively pushing themselves in new directions and genres, working under interesting filmmakers.

Colonia finds the two of them sharing the spotlight, playing a young couple who are find themselves trapped in a cult following a violent political revolution. More than anything, the new trailer for the film is a reminder that Watson and Brühl aren’t slacking off with easy material. This looks intense and mean and the kind of thing that you need to help balance out the Harry Potter and the Marvel on your filmography.
