A few years back, when The Witch’s first trailers hit, it looked like one of those movies that had the potential to be either a pretentious train wreck, or a tour de force of filmmaking. Luckily for us, it turned out to be the latter, and since then, eyes have been focused on what director Robert Eggers would be doing for his next project.

The Lighthouse had its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival, and just screened at the Toronto International Film Festival this past weekend. Now, we have a look at the film itself in a new trailer. Check out this oddity down below.

I find myself both entertained, intrigued, yet weirded out. It almost feels like some new take on Waiting for Godot. One cool note is that the film was shot on black-and-white 35 mm film, so that unique aesthetic is one that hasn’t been fabricated by digital technology.

Also, remember the comment from Pattinson last week about how he’s used to being in movies that you can watch three times and still know nothing about? I think The Lighthouse is something that falls squarely into that category.

If nothing else, it’s a unique-looking movie. But what do you think? Let us know down below!
