Margot Robbie’s new revenge thriller is your Killing Eve fix

Promising Young Woman, one of the most hotly-anticipated films of 2020, tells the story of a young woman who targets a series of men after a mysterious event in her life makes her determined for revenge.

When Margot Robbie’s production company team up with Emerald Fennell, director and writer of Killing Eve, you know you’re onto a winner.

In the film’s first trailer, set to a rendition of Britney’s Toxic, Carey Mulligan’s Cassie can be seen going home with a series of different men who proceed to take advantage of her being drunk. Little do they know, Cassie is in fact sober and seeking the ultimate form of revenge.

“Every week, I go to a club and I act like I’m too drunk to stand,” she states. “And every week, a nice guy comes over to see if I’m OK.”

As Cassie continues her quest to catch out seemingly nice men taking advantage of an intoxicated woman, one male is then heard saying: “Every guy’s worst nightmare getting accused like that,’ which Cassie responds, “can you guess what every woman’s worst nightmare is?” You tell em’, Cassie.

In today’s post #MeToo society, this film offers a powerful portrayal of rape culture and sexual assault. It also sheds light on the way women are treated throughout such allegations.

Carey Mulligan is joined by co-stars Laverne Cox, Clancy Brown, Jennifer Coolidge, Max Greenfield, Alfred Molina, and Chris Lowell.

“I wanted to cast people that we all want to like. When you hear something about somebody you love, you don’t want to believe it. I want to test at every stage our affiliations, our allegiances,” Emerald revealed to Empire.

We’ve got a very good feeling about this one.
