A brief but intriguing teaser emerges for Todd Haynes’ highly-anticipated next film May December has landed.

Todd Haynes’ May December premiered earlier this year at Cannes before being quickly snapped up by Netflix for $11m, with a Sky Cinema release in the UK. The film is set to premiere on the streaming platform on December 1st, following what we imagine will be a fairly limited theatrical run in late November.

The director of Carol and Velvet Goldmine returns with a film that follows the consequences of an affair between an older women and a younger man. May December reunites Haynes with Julianne Moore, with whom he has made three films so far. Also featuring are Natalie Portman and Charles Melton, with Piper Curda, Elizabeth Yu, and Gabriel Chung playing the children of the characters, who suffer most of the emotional fallout.

Haynes directs from a screenplay by Samy Burch, who conceived the story with Alex Mechanik. Portman also acts as one of the producers. May December has picked up strong reviews so far and is most certainly one to keep an eye out for. Here’s that first trailer below.
