Momentum Pictures has released a teaser trailer for I Think We’re Alone Now, an upcoming post-apocalyptic drama directed by Reed Morano (The Handmaid’s Tale, Billions) and starring Peter Dinklage (Game of Thrones, The Station Agent) and Elle Fanning (Super 8, Maleficent).
The movie is set in a world where the human race has been almost entirely wiped out. In it Dinklage plays a man who’s happily living alone in this new world, until he meets Fanning’s character that is.

The movie made its debut at this year’s Sundance Film Festival. Here’s a description of the film from the Sundance website:
Del (Peter Dinklage) is alone in the world. Literally. After the human race is wiped out, he lives in a small, empty town, methodically going from house to house, collecting batteries and other useful items, and burying the dead. He dines alone, reads, watches movies, and shelves books in the local library heâ€™s made his home. Heâ€™s content in his solitudeâ€”until he discovers Grace (Elle Fanning), an interloper on his quiet earth. Her history and motives are obscure, and worse yet, she wants to stay.
From the outset, I Think Weâ€™re Alone Now departs from mainstream post-apocalyptic conventions, declining to elaborate on how the world ended. It doesnâ€™t matter. Director Reed Morano is more intrigued by whoâ€™s leftâ€”the psychologies of these unmoored characters, the idea of a recluse thrust into companionship. What does the end of the world mean to a guy who had nobody in his life? Impeccably crafted, full of humor and beautifully observed moments, and with a tinge of social satire, Moranoâ€™s understated sci-fi vision is a poignant contemplation of loneliness and human connection.
The screenplay for the movie was written by Mike Makowsky (Take Me).
Morano was in the news earlier this year when it was speculated that she may be in the running to direct an upcoming Star Wars project. Still no word on if that’s true or not.
I Think We’re Alone Now will be released on September 21st.
