New images from Lanthimos's upcoming blackly comic period drama.







Having established himself as the leader of the 'Greek Weird Wave', director Yorgos Lanthimos continues to bring his acerbic brand of black comedy to English language cinema with his latest, The Favourite.

The period comedy sees the director reunite with Rachel Weisz and Olivia Colman, who both appeared in his English language debut The Lobster, while Emma Stone comes onboard for a drama set around two 18th century women (Weisz and Stone) competing for the affections of the dying Queen Anne (Colman).

The Favourite is in UK/ROI cinemas January 1st, 2019.

You can check out two new images below, along with the recent trailer, if you haven't caught that already.


The official synopsis reads:

Early 18th century. England is at war with the French. Nevertheless, duck racing and pineapple eating are thriving. A frail Queen Anne (Olivia Colman) occupies the throne and her close friend Lady Sarah (Rachel Weisz) governs the country in her stead while tending to Anne’s ill health and mercurial temper. When a new servant Abigail (Emma Stone) arrives, her charm endears her to Sarah. Sarah takes Abigail under her wing and Abigail sees a chance at a return to her aristocratic roots. As the politics of war become quite time consuming for Sarah, Abigail steps into the breach to fill in as the Queen’s companion. Their burgeoning friendship gives her a chance to fulfil her ambitions and she will not let woman, man, politics or rabbit stand in her way.
