First Trailer and Poster for George Miller’s THREE THOUSAND YEARS OF LONGING

Three Thousand Years of Longing
First look at Miller's fantasy starring Tilda Swinton and Idris Elba.

Director George Miller rode a wave of acclaim when he returned in 2015 with Mad Max: Fury Road and his latest, Three Thousand Years of Longing, just premiered at Cannes to similar raves.

Adapted from AS Byatt's short story 'The Djinn in the Nightingale's Eye', the film stars Tilda Swinton as a storytelling scholar granted three wishes by a mysterious Djinn (Idris Elba).

Three Thousand Years of Longing is in UK/ROI cinemas from September 30th.

Check out the trailer and poster below.




The official synopsis reads:

Dr Alithea Binnie (Tilda Swinton) is an academic - content with life and a creature of reason. While in Istanbul attending a conference, she happens to encounter a Djinn (Idris Elba) who offers her three wishes in exchange for his freedom.

This presents two problems. First, she doubts that he is real and second, because she is a scholar of story and mythology, she knows all the cautionary tales of wishes gone wrong. The Djinn pleads his case by telling her fantastical stories of his past. Eventually she is beguiled and makes a wish that surprises them both.
