After making the festival rounds for much of last year, the latest film from director Jeremy Saulnier is a few months away from a theatrical release and this is something you’re going to want to see as soon as possible – you’ll kick yourself when it becomes one of your favorite movies if you wait too long to see it.

It’s rough out there at the multiplexes right now, unless all you want is to watch Star Wars: The Force Awakens for the eighteenth time, but if you can hang tight for a few more months, some great films are just on the horizon. Like Jeremy Saulnier‘s Green Room. The thriller wowed on the festival circuit last year, and now it’s on its way to a spring release date on the U.S. Watch the first Green Room teaser trailer after the jump.

Jeremy Saulnier‘s Green Room is the cinematic equivalent of getting your face bashed in. In a good way, of course. This take-no-prisoners thriller has been making the festival rounds throughout 2015, sucker-punching unsuspecting audiences from Cannes to Toronto. It’s a mad and brilliant movie… and it’s already been picked up by A24, who have officially given this gruesome instant-gem a release date.
For details on the Green Room release date, hit the jump!

Green Room, the upcoming thriller from Blue Ruin writer/director Jeremy Saulnier, features Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots and Alia Shawkat as members of a band who are trapped in a backwoods venue by a white power gang led by Patrick Stewart.
The movie is perched near the top of my “most anticipated films of 2015” list, and there’s some good news and bad news on that front. The good news is that Green Room has been picked up for distribution in the US by the terrific A24, which also boasts films such as The Witch (see that ominous trailer here), The End of the Tour, Ex Machina, and Slow West. The bad news is that the Green Room release isn’t set for this year.

The new film from Blue Ruin director Jeremy Saulnier is called Green Room, and knowledge of the premise and cast was enough to place the film as number two on my “most anticipated of 2015” list, right behind Mad Max: Fury Road. The story features a punk band trapped in a backwater venue after playing an ill-advised gig, and essentially under siege from a racist gang. Patrick Stewart leads the cast as the leader of the bad guys, and Anton Yelchin, Imogen Poots, Alia Shawkat, Joe Cole, Callum Turner, Mark Webber, and Macon Blair all have parts too.
Green Room premiered at Cannes over the weekend to great acclaim, and along with the first review comments we’ve got an excellent clip from the film. Read More »
Cool Posts From Around the Web:
Jeremy Saulnier, the cinematographer-turned-director, got our attention in a big way with Blue Ruin. (That thriller is on our list of 50 great films you should see in 2014.) Now he’s making his second feature as a director. The movie, Green Room, features Patrick Stewart as a white supremacist scumbag who leads a gang that ends up in conflict with a punk band that witnesses one of the gang’s violent acts.
(Seriously, this movie sounds like a deep-sleep dream hatched after a night pounding boilermakers and reading a vintage issue of Maximum RocknRoll. I can’t wait.)
The first image of skinhead Patrick Stewart and his Green Room gang is out now; see it below. Read More »
Jeremy Saulnier is putting together the follow-up to his excellent thriller Blue Ruin, and he’s got a cast that makes the film an instant lock to see. Anton Yelchin, Alia Shawkat and Imogen Poots all star in Green Room, which Saulnier wrote and will direct. But it’s the most recent addition that will probably get your attention. Patrick Stewart has joined the cast to play the leader of a bunch of “white power skinheads.” Read More »
The indie thriller Blue Ruin is one of your best bets for spring moviegoing. This is a lean, compact, and really effective revenge tale about a guy who takes extreme measures in an ill-considered effort to protect and avenge his family. It’s a dark, violent movie with flashes of macabre, gruesome humor, and a nicely-pitched lead performance from Macon Blair. Jeremy Saulnier‘s revenge tale just doesn’t mess around, and should captivate anyone who wants to spend an hour and a half in some pretty dark (yet still entertaining) places. Check out a great new trailer below.

There are some great small thrillers coming your way soon. The excellent Cheap Thrills is on VOD now, for example, and will be in theaters later this month. Following that is Blue Ruin, a movie that did the festival circuit last year and has earned a reputation as a lean and very compact thriller.
I really enjoyed Blue Ruin; it doesn’t mess around, and doesn’t indulge in anything for the sake of impressing the audience. It sets up the story of a young man (Macon Blair) who returns to his hometown to deliver a violent blast of vengeance against the man who hurt his family. But writer/director Jeremy Saulnier isn’t interested in making a typical bloody revenge thriller; there’s a much more grounded and effective tone to Blue Ruin.
Check out a new Blue Ruin trailer below; this ad from the UK is as compact as the movie it represents. Read More »
