The Killing of a Happy End

Like I said yesterday we should put on our inspector caps because a ton of "first looks" at the movies about to play Cannes will be showing up this week, now that the fest is finally starting (which we also know is happening since I'm seeing people tweet images of their press badges and feeling profound swells of jealous rise in my belly). Here's a big pair: the first posters for Yorgos Lanthimos' The Killing of a Sacred Deer and Michael Haneke's Happy End. I like them both!

That Happy End poster in particular - with its watery emptiness (god what horrors await the characters down there???) and little red record symbol - is giving me some hard Code Unknown multiplied by Benny's Video vibes... definitely maybe with some Cache mixed in? Point being it's Haneke Squared. If you missed the first clip we posted yesterday click here for that.
