Blink Twice Trailer Reveals Zoë Kravitz’s Directorial Debut (& Everyone Is Dead)


Is 2024 the year of original thrillers that reveal the dark side of middle-aged heartthrobs? First, we got a small taste of Josh Hartnett as a Dad Joke-cracking (presumed) serial killer in the trailer for M. Night Shyamalan’s “Trap,” and now the “Blink Twice” promo offers a sneak peek at Tatum as a bearded tech-bro who may well have some literal skeletons hanging in his closet. It’s not often that C-Tates gets to play a hunk with some real darkness behind their dazzling smile, which only makes the prospect of him breaking bad in Kravitz’s film all the more enticing.

In addition to directing, Kravitz also co-wrote the script for “Blink Twice” with E.T. Feigenbaum, whom she previously collaborated with on Hulu’s short-lived but excellent “High Fidelity” TV series. Meanwhile, Ackie and Tatum are joined by a supporting cast that includes Alia Shawkat, Christian Slater, Simon Rex, Adria Arjona, Kyle MacLachlan, Haley Joel Osment, and the great Geena Davis.

“Blink Twice” will open in theaters on August 23, 2024. Its official synopsis reads as follows:

When tech billionaire Slater King (Channing Tatum) meets cocktail waitress Frida (Naomi Ackie) at his fundraising gala, sparks fly. He invites her to join him and his friends on a dream vacation on his private island. It’s paradise. Wild nights blend into sun soaked days and everyone’s having a great time. No one wants this trip to end, but as strange things start to happen, Frida begins to question her reality. There is something wrong with this place. She’ll have to uncover the truth if she wants to make it out of this party alive.
