Intriguing stuff. Is that title literal, then? A brand new civil warfare in America? Or is it one thing wilder and weirder than that? Will or not it’s a grand satire? A severe warfare film? Or a distinctly Garlandian genre-blender, bringing in parts of sci-fi and horror as he tends to? Hopefully we received’t be ready lengthy for solutions. Not solely is the trailer due subsequent week, however the poster confirms a Spring 2024 launch window – and big-big-big-screen ambitions, with this one heading to IMAX. What we do know is that the forged options Kirsten Dunst and Wagner Moura, plus a number of Garland alumni from earlier initiatives: Cailee Spaeny, Stephen McKinley Henderson, Sonoya Mizuno, and Karl Glusman.
