Coming to theaters in late October is the updated remake of Dario Argento's 1977 Giallo classic Suspiria, this time directed by Luca Guadignino. Starring 50 Shades of Grey actress Dakota Johnson and Tilda Swinton in the main roles, the story of supernatural horror haunting a dance school now has a full trailer to tease curious fans dying to know if the new-school edition will do justice to the original.
One jarring difference utilized by Guadignino is the muted earth tone pallette of the film, contrasting the vibrant primary red theme of Argento's version. The director wanted stark differences to differentiate his vision from the original. The remake will also run nearly an hour longer, giving time to expand on the screenplay written by Argento and his then-partner Daria Nicolodi. The film will be Guadignino's fifth partnership with the uniquely recognizable Swinton and second with Johnson. The director wanted to bring the whole cast of his previous movie A Bigger Splash on board for Suspiria, but only the two stars were game.
The original score by frequent Argento collaborators Goblin will be reinterpreted by Radiohead front man Thom Yorke, who called the project "terrifying" in an interview with BBC Radio 6. The soundtrack is Yorke's first foray into the world of film scoring.
Suspiria will premiere one week early on October 26th in New York and Los Angeles, expanding to a nationwide audience on November 2nd.
