First Trailer For IT FOLLOWS Director David Robert Mitchell's UNDER THE SILVER LAKE

under the silver lake
First look at Mitchell's neo noir, starring Andrew Garfield and Riley Keough.







David Robert Mitchell's It Follows is one of our favourite movies of recent years here at Waffler Towers, so we've been excited for his follow up, and the trailer is finally here for Under the Silver Lake.

Mitchell's third film stars Andrew Garfield as a Los Angeles man whose investigation into the disappearance of a mysterious young woman (Riley Keough) leads to his uncovering of a wider conspiracy.

Under the Silver Lake opens in US cinemas June 22nd. A UK/ROI release has yet to be announced.


The official synopsis reads:

From the dazzling imagination that brought you It Follows comes a delirious neonoir fever dream about one man’s search for the truth behind the mysterious crimes, murders and disappearances in his East L.A. neighborhood.

Sam (Andrew Garfield) is a disenchanted 33-year-old who discovers a mysterious woman, Sarah (Riley Keough), frolicking in his apartment’s swimming pool. When she vanishes, Sam embarks on a surreal quest across Los Angeles to decode the secret behind her disappearance, leading him into the murkiest depths of mystery, scandal and conspiracy in the City of Angels.

From writer-director David Robert Mitchell comes a sprawling, playful and unexpected mystery-comedy detective thriller about the Dream Factory and its denizens — dog killers, aspiring actors, glitter-pop groups, nightlife personalities, It girls, memorabilia hoarders, masked seductresses, homeless gurus, reclusive songwriters, sex workers, wealthy socialites, topless neighbors, and the shadowy billionaires floating above (and underneath) it all. Mining a noir tradition extending from Kiss Me Deadly and The Long Goodbye to Chinatown and Mulholland Dr., Mitchell uses the topography of Los Angeles as a backdrop for a deeper exploration into the hidden meaning and secret codes buried within the things we love.
