The chilling first trailer for writer-director Alex Garland’s upcoming film sees states seceding and a war for the White House.
The first trailer for an epic dystopian film about the collapse of the United States, the formation of new alliances and the war between them has been released. “Empires will fall,” the trailer says, as a flag with just two stars flies. One of the main roles in the film was played by Kirsten Dunst. The Verge writes about this.
The film’s plot is being kept under wraps, with the description only saying that the new film will depict “the race for the White House in the near future as America balances on a razor’s edge.” But from the trailer you can tell that 19 states have seceded, the US Army has stepped up its activities, there are references to something called “Western Forces” of California and Texas, as well as the “Florida Alliance”.

The US President, played by Nick Offerman, declares that the ongoing insurrection “will be quickly crushed.” And Kirsten Dunst appears to be leading a group of journalists trying to break into the US Capitol.
The intense clip is full of heartbreaking scenes, but one scene clearly sets the tone when Wagner Moura’s character (Narcos), playing a journalist, tells an armed soldier (Jesse Plemons), “There’s been a misunderstanding, we’re Americans.” To which Plemons’ character mockingly asks, “Okay, but what kind of American are you?”
In another episode, a journalist tells a woman in a clothing store that a civil war has broken out, to which she responds that “they’re trying to stay out of it here. And it looks like it’s going to be good for the United States.”
The director and screenwriter of the new film is Alex Garland, who previously directed the films Ex Machina and Annihilation, wrote the book The Beach, later filmed by Danny Boyle, and also wrote screenplays for such hits as 28 Days Later, Inferno “, “Never Let Me Go” and “Dredd”.
A24 will release “Civil War” in theaters and IMAX worldwide on April 26, 2024.
Let us remind you that a new spectacular trailer for the film “Dune 2” was released earlier.
