A24 has shared the first official preview for the forthcoming film adaptation of the Tony Award-winning play, The Humans.
The forthcoming flick stars Beanie Feldstein as Brigid and Steven Yeun as her boyfriend Richard. Based no the 2016 one-act play from Stephen Karam, The Humans follows the Blake family over one Thanksgiving Day, hosted by Brigid and Richard. It takes place at their rundown apartment in Manhattan’s Chinatown.
“To the Blake family Thanksgiving,” we hear in the clip. “To the very special Chinatown edition of the Blake family Thanksgiving!”
Watch the trailer for The Humans below.
The teaser is emotional and haunting, as the Blake family secrets slowly come to light.
The Humans also stars Richard Jenkins as the father Erik, Jayne Houdyshell as the mother Dierdre, Amy Schumer as the older sister Aimee, and June Squibb as the grandmother Momo. The film premiered just last week at the 2021 Toronto International Film Festival.
“To knowing this is what matters, right here,” Erik says. “Because everything anyone’s got, no matter who you are, everything you have goes.”
Directed by Karam, The Humans is out in theaters and on Showtime on the day before Thanksgiving, November 24th.
