The Immaculate Room 2022 Movie Review Poster Trailer Online
Over a year has gone by since we heard that Emile Hirsch (Into the Wild) and Kate Bosworth (Before I Wake) were starring in the “sexy thriller” The Immaculate Room for Vehicle 19 writer/director Mukunda Michael Dewil, and now we finally have some good news to share about the film’s release. Deadline reports that Screen Media has acquired the North American distribution rights, and they’re planning to give the film a day-and-date theatrical and VOD release in the second half of 2022.
Hirsch and Bosworth are joined in the cast by Ashley Greene (The Twilight Saga) and M. Emmet Walsh (Blood Simple). Doug Murray of Productivity Media, Daniel Baur of K5 International, and Joel David Moore of Balcony 9 produced The Immaculate Room, with National Picture Show’s Max Osswald co-producing. Productivity Media’s William G. Santor and Ryan Reaney served as executive producers.
Santor described The Immaculate Room as “an intelligent, sexy, humanist thriller for our time” and said it takes its cue from critical and commercial successes like Black Mirror, 10 Cloverfield Lane, and Ex Machina. Screen Media provided the following statement: The Immaculate Room is a clever, constantly surprising sci-fi thriller. It was a joy to work with such talented filmmakers, cast and crew that made this nightmare come to life.”
We’ll let you know when the company announces the specific release date for the film. The Immaculate Room sounds interesting to me. Hopefully we won’t have to wait much longer to see a trailer for it so we can have an idea of what happens in that room over the course of fifty days.
Could you survive 50 days in complete isolation, inside a sleek, pristinely white futuristic room, for five million dollars? You have no contact with the outside world. No way to talk to your friends, family, and loved ones. No way of knowing what’s happening outside the four corners of your world. Only you, your thoughts, and, if you’re lucky, your lover — all trapped together, along with a looming, imposing robotic voice keeping everything in check. That’s the question posed in The Immaculate Room, the latest movie from writer-director Mukunda Michael Dewil (Vehicle 19), which sees Kate Bosworth and Emile Hirsch as a seemingly-perfect couple who embark on a once-in-a-lifetime opportunity to live in the title-bearing expanse for their chance at securing a multi-million fortune. Of course, nothing is ever quite as simple as it seems, especially in the movies, and the upcoming thriller’s suspenseful new trailer makes it clear that this mind-bending private experiment is set to have its fair share of locked-in trouble.
As seen in the promo for this Screen Media Films/Chicken Soul for the Soul Entertainment release, Mike (Hirsch) and Kate (Bosworth) mutually agree to put the outside world on pause as they attempt to survive within the spotless cavernous walls of this futuristic cell. There’s furniture, however sparse, top-of-the-line amenities, and access to food and drinks — albeit provided in weird boxed canisters. Sure seems like an easy way to make a life-changing load of cash. Hell, people would pay to live in such seclusion. There are AirBnbs out there with fewer accommodations. What could be such a hassle here?
Well, naturally, it wouldn’t be a thriller if everything went according to plan. Suddenly, there’s a gun that’s mysteriously found in the bathroom. And a beautiful and elusive woman (Ashley Greene) who winds up joining them for the expedition. Feelings of distrust, confusion, and terror creep into each and every interaction. Then, of course, paranoia is doomed to seep into the fold thereafter. But is there something truly sinister about this self-proclaimed immaculate room? Or is it all the delusions of people divorced from reality? These are all questions that are left unanswered. At least, until August 19.
Certainly, this sci-fi premise — however uncanny it might seem at face value — is ultimately an intriguing, daunting, and maybe even timely one, particularly as more people have grown accustomed to what it’s like to shelter themselves in isolation for days on end during an ongoing pandemic. There have been many days when it felt like we were trapped inside, with no real connection to the outside world. Perhaps that’s what inspired this movie into existence? But even if it didn’t, the premise is fun and wacky enough to warrant interest.
In any case, in the interest of time, we don’t have long to wait for The Immaculate Room. Whether the film, which reunites Bosworth and Hirsch after 2020’s Force of Nature, lives up to its premise will be determined in just a few weeks. The Immaculate Room will be seen in theaters and on video on demand — where, fittingly, you can watch it unfold in the discomfort of your home — on August 19th.
