‘The Childhood of a Leader’ – Trailer

A trailer has been released for the horror/thriller film The Childhood of a Leader starring Liam Cunningham, Bérénice Bejo and Robert Pattinson.

The film follows the life of a young child who will later become a fascist leader.

Going by the trailer, The Childhood of a Leader appears to have all the hallmarks of a great horror/thriller film where a devil-child is involved.

The film looks very serious and will almost certainly have some shocking elements that the trailer isn’t showing.

The film is directed by newcomer Brady Corbet and stars Liam Cunningham (who most will recognise from his work on Game of Thrones) and Oscar nominee Bérénice Bejo.

The spooky original score is provided by Scott Walker and is sampled in the trailer.

 The Childhood of a Leader screened at the Sydney Film Festival on 14 June 2016 however there’s no word as yet for a wider release in the future.
