First Trailer & Poster For A GHOST STORY, Starring Casey Affleck & Rooney Mara

A first look at director David Lowery's supernatural drama.






Director David Lowery reteams with his Ain't Them Bodies Saints stars Rooney Mara and Casey Affleck for A Ghost Story, a supernatural drama which sees a spectral Affleck attempt to make contact with his widow (Mara) following his death.

A UK/ROI release has yet to be announced, but we have the trailer and poster for its US release on July 7th.


The official synopsis reads:

With A Ghost Story, acclaimed director David Lowery (Ain’t Them Bodies Saints, Pete’s Dragon) returns with a singular exploration of legacy, loss, and the essential human longing for meaning and connection. Recently deceased, a white-sheeted ghost (Academy Award-winner Casey Affleck) returns to his suburban home to console his bereft wife (Academy Award-nominee Rooney Mara), only to find that in his spectral state he has become unstuck in time, forced to watch passively as the life he knew and the woman he loves slowly slip away. Increasingly unmoored, the ghost embarks on a cosmic journey through memory and history, confronting life’s ineffable questions and the enormity of existence. An unforgettable meditation on love and grief, A Ghost Story emerges ecstatic and surreal—a wholly-unique experience that lingers long after the credits roll.
