Focus Features has just released the trailer for Thoroughbreds, a dark comedy-thriller starring Anya Taylor-Joy, Olivia Cooke, and Anton Yelchin.

Childhood friends Lily and Amanda reconnect in suburban Connecticut after years of growing apart. Lily has turned into a polished, upper-class teenager, with a fancy boarding school on her transcript and a coveted internship on her resume; Amanda has developed a sharp wit and her own particular attitude, but all in the process of becoming a social outcast. Though they initially seem completely at odds, the pair bond over Lily’s contempt for her oppressive stepfather, Mark, and as their friendship grows, they begin to bring out one another’s most destructive tendencies. Their ambitions lead them to hire a local hustler, Tim, and take matters into their own hands to set their lives straight.


With only about a minute of runtime to its name, there isn’t a lot of time for us, but man are they able to make that minute count. In that car, you get a snapshot of the relationship between these girls and the man they’re hiring.

While their scheme isn’t exactly clear, the way the trailer cuts between them is highly entertaining and all-around intriguing. Between the guns pulled, the faces grabbed, and the carpets scrubbed, I’m dying to know what the underlying reason is behind everything, and how it’ll resolve.

What did you think of this trailer? let us know down below!

Thoroughbreds hits theaters on March 9, 2018.
