I Think We’re Alone Now has been in limited release since last weekend, but the rest of the country will get a chance in the coming weeks as the film expands to more theaters. However, fans of Game of Thrones star Peter Dinklage, actress Elle Fanning and/or post-apocalyptic movies may be surprised by the tone director Reed Morano struck with her Sundance selected feature.
Morano has been an acclaimed cinematographer of movies like Frozen River and Beyonce’s Lemonade. She’s won acclaim as a director for the pilot that launched The Handmaid’s Tale into a Hulu phenomenon, so there’s been a lot of anticipation for her follow up feature. Morano spoke with /Film by phone about what drew her to Mike Madowsky’s script for I Think We’re Alone Now and why she was never, ever going to use the pop song of the same name in the film.

The long break between Game of Thrones seasons means it’s been a while since we’ve seen a great Peter Dinklage performance. His work in Avengers: Infinity War was fine, but if you want to watch the actor dig into a more complex role, make sure I Think We’re Alone Now is on your radar. It’s a new post-apocalyptic movie in which Dinklage plays the last man on Earth – but his tranquil existence is interrupted when he discovers a young woman (played by Super 8‘s Elle Fanning) in his small abandoned town.
We’ve seen a couple of teaser trailers already, but now the full trailer has arrived and you can check it out below. Read More »

Is there anyone better at playing soulfully sad than Peter Dinklage? The Game of Thrones star is front and center in I Think We’re Alone Now, a post-apocalyptic drama in which he plays the last man on Earth who discovers he’s not as alone as he thinks when a young woman (Elle Fanning) enters his life. Characters in similar stories might celebrate this miraculous opportunity for human connection, but Del (Dinklage) resents it – he actually prefers being by himself, even in such extreme circumstances. Like an episode of The Twilight Zone extended to feature length, I Think We’re Alone Now wraps emotional exploration in a high concept premise. And like Rod Serling’s seminal sci-fi anthology series, this movie features a third-act twist – but this one almost torpedoes the entire story. Read More »
