Netflix's Earthquake Bird Trailer Has Alicia Vikander Caught in a Wicked Thriller

  • MovieWeb
Netflix has revealed the first trailer for Earthquake Bird. This is the latest from acclaimed director Wash Westmoreland (Still Alice), who has, it seems, put together a twisted little thriller for the streaming service. The movie is based on the novel of the same name by Susanna Jones. To help bring the story to life, he's enlisted the help of Oscar-winner Alicia Vikander and Riley Keough in what looks like to be cut from the same cloth as a classic David Fincher flick.

The trailer quickly gets to the point that we're dealing with a grizzly whodunnit. The character played by Alicia Vikander is relatively new to Tokyo and makes friends with another American, played by Riley Keough. It then devolves into a love triangle filled with jealousy, twists, turns and a great deal of uncertainty. The footage isn't showing its hand, really just laying some cards out on the table.

First Full Trailer for Netflix Psychological Thriller Earthquake Bird Starring Alicia Vikander

We’ve got the first full trailer for you to check out from the Netflix indie thriller Earthquake Bird. The film is directed and adapted by Wash Westmoreland from a novel written by Susanna Jones. The film stars Alicia Vikander, Riley Keough (Logan Lucky), Jack Huston (The Irishman), Kiki Sukezane (Westworld), and Ken Yamamura (Godzilla). Here’s the synopsis:

A psychologically unsettling and atmospheric thriller set in 1989 Tokyo from director Wash Westmoreland, Earthquake Bird follows Lucy Fly (Alicia Vikander), an enigmatic expat haunted by a painful past, who enters into an intense relationship with Teiji (Naoki Kobayashi), a handsome local photographer. Lucy’s imperturbable exterior begins to crack when a naive newcomer, Lily Bridges (Riley Keough), becomes entangled in their lives and ends up missing — suspected dead.

This looks kind of creepy and weird and probably has twists and turns, but I just don’t know if I’m sold on the trailer alone.

Alicia Vikander Is Haunted by Her Missing Best Friend in ‘Earthquake Bird’ Trailer (Video)
In the trailer for her new film “Earthquake Bird,” Alicia Vikander is being questioned as one of the top subjects in the disappearance of a missing woman and one of her best friends.

And Vikander stands out in the crowd as a suspect because she’s an expat living in Tokyo in 1989, where just the act of walking around is enough for Japanese residents to stare or take your photo.

“It’s weird how everyone stares at you. It’s like being famous,” Vikander’s friend played by Riley Keough says in the trailer.

Alicia Vikander in First Full Trailer for Tokyo Thriller 'Earthquake Bird'

"We have something no one else could share... Don't you know that?" Netflix has unveiled the first official trailer for an indie thriller titled Earthquake Bird, which is premiering at the London Film Festival this month. The latest from English filmmaker Wash West, the film is about a young woman living in Tokyo who becomes the prime suspect in a horrific murder when her friend goes missing in the wake of a tumultuous love triangle. Alicia Vikander stars as Lucy Fly, with a cast including Riley Keough, Naoki Kobayashi, Kiki Sukezane, Yoshiko Sakuma, Kazuhiro Muroyama, Ken Yamamura, Crystal Kay, Akiko Iwase, and Jack Huston. This looks like yet another standard peculiar love-triangle murder-mystery psychological thriller, but it doesn't seem the Japanese locale makes much of a difference. I wish this looked better than it does so far, because the idea for it does sound quite appealing. Here's the official trailer

‘Earthquake Bird’ Trailer: Alicia Vikander & Riley Keough Are Caught In A Deadly Love Triangle

Thanks to the business model put forth by Netflix, the streaming service doesn’t have to play by the same rules as other studios. Netflix isn’t concerned about what might be a big box office hit when it greenlights a film. Instead, all that matters is that people click the button and play the film through its streaming platform. That’s why audiences are able to watch a film like the upcoming “Earthquake Bird.”

Normally, an erotic thriller about a twisted love triangle in Japan wouldn’t necessarily be the type of project that someone like Warner Bros.

‘Tell Me Who I Am’ Trailer: Shocking Family Secrets Unfold in Latest Wild Netflix Documentary
Alex Lewis was just a teenager when he endured a terrible motorcycle accident that put him in a coma and wiped his memory in the process. When he finally awoke, the young Brit knew only one thing: his twin brother’s name. He didn’t even know his own name, but he recognized his beloved sibling Marcus, and that was enough to help guide him back to apparent normalcy. Aided by his loving brother and an attentive mother, Alex was able to reconstruct his life, from learning the basics like how to brush his teeth or ride a bike, to boning up on a seemingly happy family history, as explained by Marcus.

It wasn’t true. At least, it wasn’t true to Marcus, who strove to build a history for his brother that neatly cut away the bad stuff and allowed him the kind of happiness and freedom that Marcus,

‘End of the F***ing World’ Sets Season 2 Premiere by Teasing Big Spoiler About James’ Fate

Did Netflix just give away its biggest spoiler when it comes to “The End of the F***ing World” Season 2? The streaming giant has debuted the first poster for the upcoming new season of its breakout hit (officially titled “The End of the F***ing World 2”), and it includes Jessica Barden’s Alyssa sitting at a dinner table across from an urn. The urn would appear to be the remains of Alex Lawther’s James, although the show’s first season finale never confirmed the character had died.

“The End of the F***ing World” debuted on Netflix in January 2018 and quickly became a word-of-mouth hit thanks to its deadpan black comedy and its two breakout performances from leading stars Lawther and Barden. Lawther’s James is a self-proclaimed psychopath who agrees to help Barden’s foul-mouthed Alyssa run away with the intention of eventually killing her. The two’s

‘Atlantics’ Trailer: Netflix’s Oscar-Contending Ghost Love Story Is Bewitching — Exclusive
The first trailer for French-Senegalese filmmaker Mati Diop’s feature directorial debut, “Atlantics,” offers a bewitching look at the filmmaker’s already-lauded “ghost love story.” “Atlantics” premiered at the 2019 Cannes Film Festival, where it was awarded the Grand Prix. The film’s Cannes premiere earned Diop a spot in the history books: She became the first woman of African descent with a film screening in the 72-year-old festival’s Competition section, and has proven to be one of the biggest breakouts this year.

Netflix acquired “Atlantics” at the festival, representing the streaming giant’s ongoing push into the African continent — a still relatively untapped source of talent and content. Last week, the film was selected by Senegal as the country’s submission for Best International Feature Film Oscar consideration.

With “Atlantics,” Diop has crafted a fantastical blend of romance, socio-political commentary, and surreal dreamscape all in one, resulting in what is,

Julia Goldani Telles to Star in 3rd Season of Starz Anthology Drama ‘The Girlfriend Experience’
Former “The Affair” star Julia Goldani Telles will star in the third season of Starz’s anthology drama “The Girlfriend Experience.”

Telles will play Iris, a young neuroscientist in the London tech scene who quickly learns that her client sessions as a high-end escort provide her with an edge in the tech world, and vice versa…until, that is, she begins to question whether her actions are driven by free will, or something else altogether.

Telles appeared as Whitney on Showtime’s “The Affair” and starred in Amy Sherman Palladino’s “Bunheads” that aired on ABC Family (which is now Freeform).

From ‘Marriage Story’ to ‘The Irishman,’ Netflix’s Oscar Stock Is On the Rise

Promoting two features and three documentaries, Netflix’s Telluride Film Festival dinner at Rustico spanned two long tables crammed with journalists, staff, and stars like Greta Gerwig, Adam Driver, Adam Sandler, and Laura Dern. This was Netflix CEO Reed Hastings’ third year in Telluride, only this time he was accompanied by the largest team of any Hollywood entertainment company.

It was an impressive showing, but the world has shifted dramatically since Netflix spent $50 million promoting last year’s Oscar title, “Roma.” On February 25, the morning after Alfonso Cuaron’s black-and-white drama won three of Netflix’s 15 Oscar nominations (but not Best Picture), Netflix stock opened to $367.01. At this writing, the price hovers around $288.

That makes the paradigm-busting Netflix look more human, less Pennywise, but the more complicated truth is Netflix can no longer occupy the role of studio bogeyman: Between Disney +, Hulu, Apple+, HBO Max, and Amazon, there’s too much competition.

‘The Laundromat’ Review: Dir. Steven Soderbergh (2019) [Venezia]

Joining the likes of The Post and Spotlight in recounting a journalistic investigation, Steven Soderbergh’s The Laundromat tells the story of the Panama Papers – the second of Netflix’s films premiering at this year’s Venice Film Festival.

Based on the Pulitzer Prize-winning investigation from 2016, where a whole slew of documents leaked linking politicians, celebrities, drug dealers, and the wealthy to offshore finance companies that aided them in dodging tax, the film examines the role of Mossack Fonseca – the Panama-based law firm the case was built around – played such a large role in the operation. With Mossenka (Gary Oldman) and Fonseca (Antonio Banderas) essentially narrating, filling the audience in on terminology and the like, vignettes fill the gaps in giving us a better look at what went down.

I’m wary in using the word story; The Laundromat’s biggest flaw is perhaps that it lacks a narrative. It
