A24 has released the official trailer for Stars at noon, its upcoming romantic thriller based on Denis Johnson’s 1986 novel of the same name. The film is currently scheduled to hit theaters on October 14.
The video shows an American journalist being instantly beaten by a mysterious Englishman while stranded in a foreign country. As they fall in love, they are caught in the middle of a dangerous conspiracy.
Stars at noon is directed by Claire Denis from a script she wrote with Léa Mysius and Andrew Litvack. The film stars Joe Alwyn, Margaret Qualley, Benny Safdie, Danny Ramirez and John C. Reilly.
“A young American journalist (Qualley) stranded in present-day Nicaragua falls for an enigmatic Englishman (Alwyn) who seems like her best chance of escape,” the synopsis reads. “However, she quickly realizes that he may be in even greater danger than she is.”
The film adaptation had its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in 2022, where it won the Grand Prix. It is produced by Olivier Delbosc and Olivier Gauriat.
