“Mad Max: Fury Road” filmmaker George Miller returns with the fantasy-romance-drama “Three Thousand Years Of Longing” which is premiering at Cannes.
The $60 million budget film revolves around the encounter in a hotel room in Istanbul between a scholar (Tilda Swinton) and a djinn (Idris Elba) who offers her three wishes in exchange for his freedom. Their conversation leads to consequences neither would have expected.
Miller has dubbed it an “anti-Mad Max” film as it’s “almost all interior and there’s a lot of conversation in it”
MGM will release the film, rated R for “sexual content, graphic nudity and brief violence,” in cinemas on August 31st.
