When I think of Assassination Nation, I think of that philosophy of Joker in The Dark Knight. What does gasoline and dynamine have in common? They’re cheap. When I watched the red band teaser trailer for this film last month (See it here), it was pretty clear this was a film that was going to be as exploitative as possible. A detached, violent tale that takes genuinely interesting subtext about the danger of social media on real-life community and essentially just use it as a jumping off point of violence, sex, and how far the director is willing to push the envelope with both. So much so that no general audience trailer has been released for the film with the new trailer released today another red band. Just longer. Check it out below:
Assassination Nation stars Odessa Young, Suki Waterhouse, Hari Nef, Abra, Bella Thorne, Bill Skarsgård, Cody Christian, Joel McHale, Maude Apatow, Colman Domingo, and Anika Noni Rose. It is directed by Sam Levinson and is set to hit theaters September 21st.
