Dive into A Bigger Splash

Just as the dust has begun to settle on our lists of favourite films for 2015, a new round of lists has emerged, detailing the most anticipated films for the coming year.

I’m pretty much looking forward to all of them, but one film is leading the pack for me. And my anticipation levels are in hyperdrive.

Yesterday, Studio Canal dropped the new, full trailer for Luca Guadagnino’s A Bigger Splash (in UK cinemas on February 12). It’s 1:55 of pure, shimmering seduction, promising a cool and regal Tilda Swinton, a seriously smouldering Matthias Schoenaerts, a temptingly luscious Dakota Johnson, and above all a mischievous, shirtless dancing Ralph Fiennes, in a sexy, roguish role like we’ve never seen him in before, but that those of us who have loved him our entire adult lives have been dreaming of forever. There’s manic electricity charging through him here; he seems to be on fire.

A Bigger Splash promises plenty of sun, Sicily and sexual shenanigans and apparently a surprisingly sensual fish-gutting scene. I’ll be writing about Ralph Fiennes and A Bigger Splash at length to mark its Australian release (March 24), but for now, let’s get entranced in our own erotic heatwave, and enjoy the many pleasures this trailer has to offer.
