A trailer was released Wednesday for the upcoming movie “You Were Never Really Here,” and it is horrifying.

The plot of the film, according to the YouTube description, is, “A missing teenage girl. A brutal and tormented enforcer on a rescue mission. Corrupt power and vengeance unleash a storm of violence that may lead to his awakening.”

Joaquin Phoenix plays the enforcer in the trailer, and he’s clearly on the hunt for blood. It is an incredibly violent trailer. I’m going to go out on a limb and say that there will be plenty of people that die during this movie.

I’m on record about not being a huge Joaquin Phoenix fan after that really weird phase he went through a few years back that he later claimed was a massive stunt. So weird. However, this movie looks awesome. The whole “pissed off protector” narrative can do so well if properly executed. “Man on Fire” would be a great example.

Hopefully this one lives up to the hype.
