"Sacred Deer" Trailer Kills

Chris here. I take back every complaint I've had about trailers using moody covers of familiar songs, and all thanks to a supremely terrifying use of Ellie Goulding's "Burn" in the new trailer for The Killing of a Sacred Deer. Paired with some chilling and evocative images, the song helps make the trailer as scary as any full film in theatres this year. Yorgos Lanthimos is ready to shake us up again and with even darker laughs than before!

This trailer is a thing of wonder, a certain contender for best of the year for how it quickly grabs you by the shoulders and lingers after its done. It does what so few trailers do: gives us scant plot details while selling us on mood. Colin Farrell and Nicole Kidman's immediate reuniting post-Beguiled looks to be even more slippery and poisoned than what they delivered together this year, so it will be exciting to see both performers return to something more outre. Try as I might, I didn't spot Alicia Silverstone's reportedly brief role anywhere here - but trust that we'll be eager for her return!

But my big question mark will be Dunkirk lad Barry Keoghan as the film's pseudo-villain - just how nefarious will he be and could this be one of the major fall breakouts? With the film playing TIFF, expect to hear our thoughts before the film opens right in time for Halloween on October 27!

we've got the tweet we've got the tweet.... yeahhhhh, we've got the tweet 🎵

Before we get to the amusing tweets of the week, let us communally worship this new image of BFFs Naomi & Nicole, which Naomi posted with "this woman is everything to me" message. 

This woman is everything to me 😍

Doesn't their friendship just warm the cockles of your heart? Or thaw it if it's gone ice cold. Do you think they watch each other's work and discuss like its book club or something? 

After the jump tweets on Meryl Streep's onscreen deaths (no really), Atomic Blonde's badassery, Henry Cavill's moustache, much Dunkirk hoopla, and more...

10 Favorite Moments in the Emmy Drama Actress Roundtable

THR's exciting tradition is upon us. They've released the full roundtable of Emmy Drama actress hopefuls. Well, hopefuls at the time. Oprah Winfrey was not nominated as she was expected to be for The Immortal Life of Henrietta Lacks. The same thing happened to her when she was on the Oscar-seeking roundtable for The Butler. Despite being the former queen of talk, perhaps this format is a curse for her? The other women present were nominated: Reese Witherspoon and Nicole Kidman (Big Little Lies), Jessica Lange (Feud: Bette and Joan), Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid's Tale), and Chrissy Meitz (This Is Us).

The Roundtable in full, and ten favorite moments therein after the jump...

Herewith some news stories as well as a few random good reads.

Tweetweek: Aunt May, His & Hers Emmy Nods, Everything Being James Franco's Fault

Readers... I'm back from my critics retreat (which featured such spotty internet that I finally gave up on the internet altogether but the ability to focus without it was kind of amazing -- try it sometime) Regular posting will begin again Monday. Tonight please enjoy this roundup of amusing tweets as I try to catch up on news, emails, and social media. Yours truly, Nathaniel...
