During the one-minute clip, Benedict Cumberbatch’s character whistles a haunting tune as he peers out a window. One of the final shots of the teaser is a close-up of flowers splattered with blood.
The drama, based on a novel of the same name by Thomas Savage and set in Montana in 1925, tells the story of an intimidating rancher, Phil Burbank (Cumberbatch), and his brother, George (Plemons). When George marries a widower and single mother (Kirsten Dunst), and moves her and her son (Smit-McPhee) to the brothers’ ranch, Phil sets out to destroy the interlopers.
The Power of the Dog also stars Thomasin McKenzie, Frances Conroy, Keith Carradine, Peter Carroll and Adam Beach.
Campion won an original screenplay Oscar for her 1994 film, The Piano. The Power of the Dog marks her first feature since 2009’s Bright Star.
The movie will premiere at the Venice Film Festival. It will also screen at the Toronto and New York film festivals.
The Power of the Dog will be released in select theaters on Nov. 17 before hitting Netflix on Dec. 1.
