The teaser for Kinds of Kindness, Yorgos Lanthimos and Emma Stone’s latest collaboration since Oscar darling Poor Things, features a fast car, kissing, a whole lot of excitement.

“The moment of truth. This is it,” Stone says in a voiceover in the trailer as Sweet Dreams (Are Made of This) by The Eurythmics plays.

Kinds of Kindness also stars Poor Things alums Willem Dafoe and Margaret Qualley alongside Lanthimos’ The Favourite actor Joe Alwyn and Jesse Plemons (Killers of the Flower Moon, Power of the Dog). Other cast includes The Whale actress Hong Chau, Elemental actor Mamoudou Athie, and Euphoria actress Hunter Schafer.

What Is the Yorgos Lanthimos and Emma Stone Movie Kinds of Kindness About?

Searchlight Pictures’ describes Kinds of Kindness as, “a triptych fable, following a man without choice who tries to take control of his own life; a policeman who is alarmed that his wife who was missing-at-sea has returned and seems a different person; and a woman determined to find a specific someone with a special ability, who is destined to become a prodigious spiritual leader.”

There’s a lot going on here. The trailer shows us the legs of someone being dragged through a doorway, someone else falling out of a wheeled chair, a boat speeding quickly through the water, a dog, an orange being juiced, and another shot of that purple car skidding around a motel parking lot.

For brief moments, we also get flashes of Dafoe, Qualley, Stone, Alwyn, Chau, Schafer, Plemons, and Athie.

But the only other dialogue in the trailer comes at the end, with Stone saying, “Isn’t it wonderful?”

Written by Lanthimos and Efthimis Filippou, Kinds of Kindness is produced by Lanthimos, Ed Guiney, Andrew Lowe, Katia Malian.

Earlier this month, Stone won the Oscar for best actress for her role as Bella Baxter in Poor Things. It was her second time winning best actress after 2016’s La La Land.
