Robert Pattinson & Willem Dafoe Go Stir Crazy in Nerve-Wracking ‘The Lighthouse’ Trailer

Half because you couldn't understand a word coming of out of Dafoe and Pattinson's lips, and half because the word is likely seared into your brain after the the two mangy-looking stars repeat "What" to each other for a full minute.

A24 kicks off the week by sharing the second trailer for director Robert Eggers' much-anticipated The Witch followup, The Lighthouse. Shot in black-and-white, the acclaimed Cannes premiere arrived at TIFF this weekend and now a new trailer and poster have landed.

Being cooped up in a tiny building with Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe for a long time probably sounds pretty appealing to a lot of people. No matter how stunning this looks visually, we're even anxious for that decapitated head we get a brief glimpse of in the trailer, which has us really concerned for the safety of Pattinson's character.

"We are making all-out efforts to see whether communication can be re-established with the lander". However, the orbiter could not establish communication with it so far, the space agency said.

Set on a remote New England island at the turn of the 19th century, the story finds Ephraim Winslow (Pattinson) and Thomas Wake (Dafoe) as they squabble, spin stories and, in the new trailer, descend into shouting "what?!" at each other.

Rory O'Connor said in his review, "For all its finely considered dread, the reason Robert Eggers' ungulate-deifying debut The Witch made such a cultural mark had far more to do with its sense of mischief".

We only received a brief taste of "the enchantment", but it will be interesting to see how both characters go off the deep end in The Lighthouse, which hits theaters on October 18.
