Patrick Stewart is Ruthless in the New Red Band Trailer for ‘Green Room’

GreenRoom_Poster_long(PCM) What started out as an ordinary gig for the punk band in director Jeremy Saulnier’s horror-thriller Green Room soon dissolves into complete madness and brutal violence in the newly released Red Band (18+) trailer.

Did we mention that the trailer also contains a ruthless and sadistic Patrick Stewart? Watch for yourself below.

Down on their luck punk rockers, The Ain’t Rights, are finishing up a long and unsuccessful tour and are about to call it quits when they get an unexpected booking at an isolated, run-down club deep in the backwoods of Oregon.

What merely seems to be a third-rate gig escalates into something much more sinister when they witness an act of violence backstage that they weren’t meant to see.

Now trapped backstage, they must face off against the club’s depraved owner, Darcy Banker (Stewart), a man who will do anything to protect the secrets of his nefarious enterprise.

But while Darcy and his henchmen think the band will be easy to get rid of, The Ain’t Rights prove themselves much more cunning and capable than anyone expected, turning the tables on their unsuspecting captors and setting the stage for the ultimate life-or-death showdown.

Intense, emotional, and ingeniously twisted, Green Room is genre filmmaking at its best and most original. Saulnier continues to build his reputation as one of the most exciting and distinctive directors working today, with a movie that’s completely different from his previous, highly acclaimed Blue Ruin, but which is just as risk-taking and even more full of twists.

The entire cast deliver first-rate performances, but Patrick Stewart gives a transformative and brilliantly devious turn as Darcy—elegant yet lethal, droll yet terrifying, Stewart makes the film simply unforgettable. (A24)

The film has received high praises from critics after its premiere at the Cannes Film Festival in May of 2015 and the Sundance Film Festival on January  22 and is currently sporting a high critics’ rating of 92% on Rotten Tomatoes.

Leslie Felperin of The Hollywood Reporter gave Green Room a favorable review, writing: “As action, it’s niftily executed, the suspense neatly built, and the shocks expectedly surprising.”

Scott Weinburg also enjoyed Green Room, writing in his review for Nerdist: “A meticulously morbid and deviously entertaining piece of low-budget/high-quality action filmmaking.”

Green Room, starring Anton Yelchin (Star Trek, Fright Night), Imogen Poots (Need for Speed, 28 Weeks Later), Alia Shawkat (Arrested Development, Whip It), Macon Blair (Blue Ruin), Joe Cole (Peaky Blinders), Callum Turner, and Patrick Stewart (X-Men, Star Trek: The Next Generation), opens in select theaters April 1 before expanding to a wide open on April 15.
