‘Thoroughbreds’ Trailer Showcases a Dark Comedy About Murder

Focus Features has released the first red-band trailer for its upcoming dark comedy Thoroughbreds. Thoroughbreds is directed and written by Corey Finley and follows childhood friends Lily (Anya Taylor-Joy) and Amanda (Olivia Cooke) come back together having endured completely different life experiences.

Lily comes from a polished upper-class lifestyle while Amanda has become a witty social misfit. Despite this, the two come together for shared contempt for Lily’s oppressive stepfather Mark (Paul Sparks). This hatred brings out each other’s destructive tendencies, leading them to a local hustler (Anton Yelchin) to carry out an illegal agenda.  The film debuted at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year to positive reviews. Thoroughbreds hits the UK on March 9, 2018; for now, watch the trailer above and leave your thoughts in the comments below.
