Todd Solondz, known as a controversial writer-director, returns behind the camera once more with Dark Horse, which debuted at Venice last year to a great critical reception.

A new trailer has surfaced online ahead of its release next month, courtesy of The Playlist.

Craig caught the film at its UK premiere last year at the BFI London Film Festival, and you can read his review of it right here.

“The film sees thirtysomething Abe (Jordan Gelber) stuck in arrested development, living with his parents (Mia Farrow and Christopher Walken), with a hobby of collecting toys. In order to lose his status as the dark horse of the family, he begins a relationship with Miranda (Selma Blair), who has moved back home after seeing her literary and academic career fail.”

Directing from his own script, Solondz has assembled an impressive cast, with little-known Jordan Gelber in the lead, supported by Selma Blair, Christopher Walken, Mia Farrow, Justin Bartha, Zachary Booth, and Aasif Mandvi.

Dark Horse will be getting a limited release in the US beginning on 8th June in New York, followed by further cities after that. It will then be making its way to UK shores for a release at the end of the month on 29th June, so if you’re a fan of Solondz’s work, that’s a date you’ll want to remember. Here’s the new trailer to give you a taste of what we’re in store for:
