I know that it is a little bit early to be looking forward to the films that will be released this autumn, but Captain Fantastic is one that I am already really looking forward to.
Captain Fantastic sees Viggo Mortensen return to the big screen as he takes on the central role of devoted father Ben. This is his first feature film since Far from Men and marks the first time that he has teamed up with filmmaker Matt Ross.
Ross is on writing and directing duties with Captain Fantastic, which is the second feature of his career. The movie comes four years after he made his directorial debut with 28 Hotel Rooms.
A brand new clip for the film has been released and we have it for you to take a look at. Check it out:
Ross has assembled a great cast for the film as Mortensen is joined by Frank Langella, George MacKay, Samantha Isler, Annalise Basso, Nicholas Hamilton, Shree Crooks, Charlie Shotwell, Ann Dowd, Erin Moriarty, Missi Pyle, Kathryn Hahn and Steve Zahn.
The cast is a real mix of established actors and up and coming stars and it is going to be exciting to see them in action.
Deep in the forests of the Pacific Northwest, isolated from society, a devoted father (Mortensen) dedicates his life to transforming his six young children into extraordinary adults.
But when a tragedy strikes the family, they are forced to leave this self-created paradise and begin a journey into the outside world that challenges his idea of what it means to be a parent and brings into question everything he's taught them.
The movie premiered at the Sundance Film Festival earlier this year and is set to screen as part of the Un Certain Regard section at the 2016 Cannes Film Festival, which got underway earlier this week.
Captain Fantastic is released 9th September.
