Damsel Trailer

“I will escape… for every innocent woman whose life was stolen.” Netflix has launched the full trailer for the action thriller fantasy movie Damsel, from Spanish filmmaker Juan Carlos Fresnadillo (best known for Intacto, 28 Weeks Later, and Intruders years ago). Ready for a streaming release in March. A young woman agrees to marry a handsome prince — only to discover it was all a trap. She is thrown into a cave with a fire-breathing dragon and must rely solely on her wits and will to survive. “She’s a ‘damsel’ who doesn’t need to be saved. She saves herself in many ways. It subverts what you expect: You’re expecting the prince to turn around and save her, and… no. Don’t wait for the prince.” Why, of course not! Millie Bobby Brown stars as Elodie in this story. The cast also includes Robin Wright, Angela Bassett, Nick Robinson, Brooke Carter, Ray Winstone, and Shohreh Aghdashloo. Seems like this should be a pretty good time! It’s not entirely set in the cave with this dragon, clearly a lot more going down with this kingdom and her defiance.

Here’s the main official trailer (+ poster) for Juan Carlos Fresnadillo’s Damsel, from Netflix’s YouTube:

“It’s a thrilling adventure with a really dark twist to put you on the edge of your seat… As a filmmaker, one of the things I always want to do is surprise the audience with a new take on a story. Especially this kind of [traditional story] — we have to modernize those tales with new takes, more modern and real ways, to connect with the audience.” –Director Juan Carlos Fresnadillo
