The official trailer for Michel Franco‘s film New Order is here, which shows a harsh look at wealth and the pushback against those who flaunt their lavish lifestyles. Starting at a wedding, the trailer takes a sharp twist in tone as the wedding is interrupted by people with guns. New Order looks to push the boundaries of what we accept in our world and the consequences of actions.
Starring Naian González Norvind, Diego Boneta, Samantha Yazareth Anaya, Dario Yazbek Bernal, and Patricia Bernal, we’re in for all the twists and turns of what comes from too much wealth and not enough compassion.
New Order looks to be a social commentary that has been a long time coming. With the lavish wealth being paraded on social media, tensions continue to grow throughout the world and Franco’s vision for New Order is dark and twisted but, from the trailer alone, shows the reality we could find ourselves in sooner rather than later.
It’s one of the few trailers in recent years to keep you on the edge of your seat throughout the entire thing. The official selection for the Toronto International Film Festival as well as the grand prize jury winner at the Venice Film Festival in 2020 and the AFI Official Selection for 2020, New Order is clearly a film that is worth our time.
New Order hits theaters this May 21. Check out the official trailer and synopsis for New Order below.
