StudioCanal has released the new poster and the UK trailer for Danish director Thomas Vinterberg’s dark comedy Another Round. The film will premiere at The BFI London Film Festival on Wednesday 14 October and then hit UK cinemas 20 November.
Another Round stars the mighty Mads Mikkelsen as one of four friends who decide to keep alcohol in their systems throughout the working day. You know that won’t end well.
This looks great.
There is an obscure philosophical theory that humans should have been born with a small amount of alcohol in our blood; that modest inebriation opens our minds to the world around us, diminishing problems and increasing creativity.
Intrigued, Martin (Mads Mikkelsen) and three of his friends, all weary high school teachers, embark on a risky experiment to maintain a constant level of intoxication throughout the workday.
Initial results are positive, but as the units are knocked back and stakes are raised, it becomes increasingly clear that some bold acts carry severe consequences.
