Trailer Watch: The Absolutely Insane 'Greta' From Director Neil Jordan

If you find a personal item on public transportation, report it...don't send it back. 

Now this one has our attention.

The latest film from Oscar-nominated director Neil Jordan (The Crying Game), Greta tells the story of a good samaritan (Chloë Grace Moretz) who finds a pocketbook that's been left on a New York City subway car. She finds an ID inside and, determined, delivers it back to the woman whose bag it is (Isabelle Huppert). Needless to say, she shouldn't have done that.

Does this trailer give too much away? It's hard to tell, but the movie looks appropriately erotic and vicious, as Huppert's character grows obsessed with Moretz's and a cat-and-mouse game unfolds along with some appropriately wicked stabbings and bloodshed. Jordan is no stranger to genre films and his latest appears gleefully in-your-face and trashy. An erotic thriller that becomes a murder mystery that becomes a slasher film? We'll take it.

Greta opens in theaters on March 1st, 2019, courtesy of Focus Features.

Jacob's Ladder was Adrian Lyne, not Neil Jordan.

could actually be a good movie but HOW stupid trailers are and what a reduction of the director's original intention to spoil things like they do. going in fresh vs. going in with what the trailer shows you would in my view take away about 80-90% of the enjoyment and surprise. TRAILERS SHOULD NOT EXIST IN THE FORM THEY ARE IN AND CERTAINLY SHOULD NOT BE PROMOTED. any thinking person would see what i mean.
