Steven Knight’s SERENITY Gets a Trailer

Avrion Pictures has released the first trailer for the upcoming Steven Knight thriller Serenity, starring Matthew McConaughey, Anne Hathaway, Jason Clarke, Djimon Hounsou, Jeremy Strong and Diane Lane. McConaughey plays a man who escaped his life and works as a fishing boat captain leading tours around a place called Plymouth Island. His life of solitude is broken however, when his ex-wife, played by Hathaway finds him and asks that he kill her current husband, played by Clarke.

Serenity opens in theaters October 19th.

From the creative mind of Oscar nominee Steven Knight comes a daringly original, sexy, stylized thriller. Baker Dill (Academy Award winner Matthew McConaughey) is a fishing boat captain leading tours off a tranquil, tropical enclave called Plymouth Island. His quiet life is shattered, however, when his ex-wife Karen (Academy Award winner Anne Hathaway) tracks him down with a desperate plea for help. She begs Dill to save her – and their young son – from her new, violent husband (Jason Clarke) by taking him out to sea on a fishing excursion, only to throw him to the sharks and leave him for dead. Karen’s appearance thrusts Dill back into a life he’d tried to forget, and as he struggles between right and wrong, his world is plunged into a new reality that may not be all that it seems.
