Trailer: Cooke, Joy, Yelchin In “Thoroughbreds”

Focus Features has unveiled the new trailer for Cory Finley’s drama thriller “Thoroughbreds” starring Olivia Cooke (“Bates Motel”), Anya Taylor-Joy (“Split”), and the late Anton Yelchin.

In the film childhood friends Lily and Amanda reconnect in suburban Connecticut after years of growing apart. Lily has turned into a polished, upper-class teenager, with a fancy boarding school on her transcript and a coveted internship on her resume.

Amanda has developed a sharp wit and her own particular attitude, but all in the process of becoming a social outcast. Though they initially seem completely at odds, the pair bond over Lily’s contempt for her oppressive stepfather, Mark.

As their friendship grows, they begin to bring out one another’s most destructive tendencies. Their ambitions lead them to hire a local hustler, Tim, and take matters into their own hands to set their lives straight.

“Thoroughbreds” will open in cinemas on March 9th 2018.
