A remote island, an elite guest list, and a menu to die for. A couple (Anya Taylor-Joy and Nicholas Hoult) travels to a coastal island to sup at chef Fiennes' exclusive restaurant, where a lavish menu with some shocking surprises awaits them. Twelve customers total, $1,250 a head, a whole lot of mouth feels, and an underlying sense of unease. Welcome to Hawthorn! Check out the official The Menu trailer below.
There are few things as chilling as a phrase along the lines of "a forty-five-second headstart," particularly when there's no context to accompany it. But better to run now, ask questions later, right? Every second you stand around waiting for answers is yet another second shaved off your precious forty-five seconds ticking down. putting less distance between you and whatever it is you may need longer than a forty-five-second headstart for.
Directed by Mark Mylod and starring Anya Taylor-Joy, Nicholas Hoult, Ralph Fiennes, John Leguizamo, Judith Light, Hong Chau, The Menu hits theaters November 18th.
