'Carnage' Trailer: Kate Winslet and Jodie Foster Freak Out in Roman Polanski's Film Adaptation (Video)

John C. Reilly and Christoph Waltz co-star in the upcoming film, debuting at the Venice Film Festival.

Roman Polanski’s ‘Carnage’
Toronto Film Festival
"Carnage"

Carnage, based on the God of Carnage play by Yasmina Reza, has the starpower and a well-known director behind it. Even with the pedigree, will it translate onto the big screen?

Based on the trailer, Carnage is as dramatic -- perhaps even more so -- than the stage play, entirely set in one room. Jodie Foster and John C. Reilly are one married couple while Kate Winslet and Christoph Waltz make up the other; their characters are parents who meet up to talk after their children have been in a fight earlier that day at school.

Of course, things start to turn as the minutes turn to hours. Some of the best parts of the trailer feature Winslet and Foster having freakout moments.

The Sony Pictures Classics film, directed by Roman Polanski, will debut at this year's Venice Film Festival.
