Sci-fi thriller Vivarium Irish release date announced


An Irish made sci-fi film will be in cinemas early next year as Lorcan Finnegan’s sci-fi thriller Vivarium starring The Social Network’s Jesse Eisenberg, Green Room’s Imogen Poots and written by Garret Shanley will be released in Irish cinemas on 27th March 2020.

 

During their search for the perfect home, Gemma (Poots) and Tom (Eisenberg) find themselves trapped in a mysterious labyrinth-like suburban neighborhood named Yonder. All attempts to escape end in failure, culminating in the discovery of a baby on the pavement outside house number 9 with the instructions ‘raise the child and be released’. Reminiscent of the likes of Get Out and TV’s Black Mirror, Vivarium is as thrillingly provocative as it is wickedly enjoyable and takes you on a trip into an unforgettable suburban Twilight Zone.

 

Following its world debut in competition as part of Critics’ Week at the Cannes Film Festival (2019) where it picked up the Gan Foundation Award, the film went on to screen at some of the most prestigious film festivals around the world including the Sitges International Film Festival where Imogen Poots was awarded Best Actress and the BFI London Film Festival last month where it received rave reviews.

Check out a clip from Vivarium below.

Vivarium is a European co-production with Brendan McCarthy and John McDonnell producing for Dublin’s Fantastic Films along with Jean-Yves Roubin of Belgium’s Frakas Productions and Alexander Brøndsted of Denmark’s Pingpong Film.

 

Vivarium will be released by Wildcard Distribution in Irish cinemas on 27th March 2020.
