Netflix has finally revealed the official The Power of the Dog trailer for Oscar-winning filmmaker Jane Campion’s upcoming film adaptation, based on a 1967 cult novel by Thomas Savage. Starring Benedict Cumberbatch and Kodi Smit-McPhee, the film is set to premiere in select theaters on November 17, followed by its Netflix debut on December 1.
The video, which you can check out below along with the new posters, highlights the commanding presence of Cumberbatch’s Phil Burbank, a wealthy rancher who’s opposed to his brother’s new wife and stepson. Because of this, he’ll give them both a hard time through rude and indifferent acts that humiliate them.
The Power of the Dog is written and directed by Jane Campion, the acclaimed filmmaker behind the 1993 period drama film The Piano. It stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Kirsten Dunst, Jesse Plemons, Kodi Smit-McPhee, Thomasin McKenzie, Frances Conroy, Keith Carradine, Peter Carroll, and Adam Beach.
The Power of the Dog is a production by See-Saw Films, Bad Girl Creek, and Max Films in association with Brightstar, The New Zealand Film Commission, Cross City Films, and BBC Film. It is produced by Emile Sherman, Iain Canning, Roger Frappier, Jane Campion, and Tanya Seghatchian.
Campion leads a creative team consisting of Ari Wegner (Director of Photography), Grant Major (Production Designer), Kirsty Cameron (Costume Designer), Jonny Greenwood (Composer), and Peter Scibberas (Editor).
