The latest trailer for the upcoming Lionsgate release 'Antebellum' doesn't give much in the way of story details, but neither did the previous two trailers. And the official synopsis doesn't tell us much either:
Successful author Veronica Henley (Janelle Monáe) finds herself trapped in a horrifying reality and must uncover the mind-bending mystery before it's too late.
It looks like Monáe's character Veronica Henley gets snatched away from her modern life and dropped into what seems to be a pre-Civil War plantation, but mum's the word on exactly how that happens. Monáe's co-stars include Gabourey Sidibe, Kiersey Clemons, Jack Huston, and Jenna Malone.
Since the film is from the producers of 'Us' and 'Get Out,' it's a safe bet that this will be a horror film with something to say.
Originally slated for a Spring release, but delayed to nearly global shuttering of movie theaters, 'Antebellum' is now scheduled for release on August 21, 2020.
