Ever wanted to date a creepy photographer in a foreign country? It looks like that’s kinda what happens to Alicia Vikander’s character in the upcoming Netflix film Earthquake Bird. The trailer shows her abroad in 1989, and as a foreigner, she predictably has a lot of eyes on her as she walks down the street, including one creepy-ass photographer. 

Admittedly, the trailer doesn’t really do much explaining in terms of the plot. The relationship between him and the photographer does seem like it skews into the unhealthy, and it even looks like there may even be a romantic connection between her and her friend. While not the greatest trailer, it does have me a bit intrigued.

Below is the official synopsis for Earthquake Bird:

“A psychologically unsettling and atmospheric thriller set in 1989 Tokyo from director Wash Westmoreland (Colette, Still Alice), 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 yet similarly troubled 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.”
