It’s been a whopping seven years since George Miller set such a bold exclamation point in action cinema with » Mad Max: Fury Road » that it’s still clearly visible today. Now his latest film is finally coming: the visually stunning fantasy romance “ Three Thousand Years Of Longing ”!
The focus is on the scientist Dr. Alithea Binnie ( Tilda Swinton ). When she visits the bazaar on the sidelines of a conference in Istanbul, she comes across an old glass bottle and soon finds out that a jinn ( Idris Elba ) lives in it. And as we know it from «Aladdin» and Co., he makes it clear to her that she now has three wishes. But she is skeptical and refuses to express one. So the genie starts telling stories from his life and earlier times with wishes of other people in front of her to convince her.
Only in the cinema in autumn, but our criticism will be there soon
«Three Thousand Years Of Longing» will be shown in German cinemas from September 1, 2022. So you have to be patient a little longer.
You will find out sooner whether the high expectations brought by the trailer and the name George Miller will be fulfilled in our opinion. The world premiere will take place in Cannes this Friday evening, May 20, 2022. Our criticism will probably follow over the course of the weekend.
Strange but true? Real (!) corpses are supposed to be shown in these films
