Most people know 49-year-old Peter Dinklage from his role as Tyrion Lannister in the popular HBO series “Game of Thrones.” He has also starred in some major comic book films. Dinklage is now starring in a completely different dramatic film, as a reclusive character in the apocalyptic drama “I Think We’re Alone Now.”

The end of the world has happened and initially what we see is an empty space with just one person staying alive. As reported by Uproxx, Dinklage’s reclusive character has buried all his neighbours and is quite happy to be totally alone in his hometown.

This changes drastically as Elle Fanning’s character arrives on the scene and wants to stay.

After the apocalypse

Most apocalyptic films show mass violence, death and explosions, but this Film is different. It tells the story of two people, attempting to live together in the empty world. Watch the official trailer for the movie below.

From what we can surmise from the trailer, Dinklage and Fanning’s characters are the only living people in the world. It is not clear what killed the population – maybe it was a virus that the pair is immune to? As noted by Cinema Blend, there is one goldfish that appears to have survived too. The film looks excellent – one of those slow-moving stories that creeps viewers out.

Both Dinklage and Fanning’s characters appear to be hiding some secrets.

Dinklage also shone as a dramatic actor in movies like “Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri” and “The Station Agent.” It appears Dinklage plays the role of a serious dramatic actor very seriously indeed.

Even from the brief trailer, it is clear that his acting in the new film is excellent.

Mike Makowski wrote the script for “I Think We’re Alone Now,” and he also wrote the script of “Bad Education” coming soon with Hugh Jackman in the starring role. Reed Morano is the director and is also acting as a cinematographer, ensuring eerie and gripping scenes.

As can be seen from the trailer, this will be similar to her efforts in a number of episodes of “The Handmaid’s Tale,” well known for its dramatic and gripping scenes. Even the haunting music in the trailer evokes that TV series.

When will ‘I Think We’re Alone Now’ be in cinemas?

The film featured earlier in the year at the Sundance Film Festival to great applause and where it got the juror's vote for Excellence in Filmmaking. The film was also described by critics as being "haunting," "intriguing" and "mesmerising."

For the rest of us mere moviegoers, “I Think We’re Alone Now” is set to premiere in cinemas in September this year, with a limited release on 14 September, and a full release on 21 September 2018.
