George Miller Drops Insane ‘Three Thousand Years of Longing’ First Footage — Watch
Dreaming of genie takes on a whole new meaning in George Miller’s twisted sprawling fantasy “Three Thousand Years of Longing.”

The film debuts at 2022 Cannes and Tilda Swinton stars as a scholar who encounters a Djinn (Idris Elba), who offers her three wishes in exchange for his freedom. Their conversation, unfolding in a hotel room in Istanbul, leads to decades-spanning consequences neither expected. “Three Thousand Years of Longing” premieres in theaters August 31. Check out the first footage below.

The teaser shows Elba’s character being horrifically sucked back into an urn, while Swinton as academic Dr. Alithea Binnie rides a train wearing a face mask. A succession of lush images is juxtaposed with a leering god-like figure. The trio of wishes are informed by Elba, recalling his origin story as a Dijinn, leading to Swinton’s Binnie making a shocking decision.
