The lineup for the 78th Venice International Film Festival has officially been announced. In addition to the selection of films, HBO’s upcoming limited series Scenes from a Marriage will have its world premiere.
Scenes from a Marriage is an adaptation of Ingmar Bergman’s classic Swedish miniseries, developed, written, and directed by Hagai Levi. The series stars Oscar Isaac and Jessica Chastain (who previously played a married couple in the 2014 drama A Most Violent Year), and it will re-examine the original’s iconic depiction of love, hatred, desire, monogamy, marriage, and divorce through the lens of a contemporary American couple.
The series also stars Nicole Beharie, Corey Stoll, and Tovah Feldshuh.
Watch the teaser trailer below.
Episodes 1-5 of Scenes from a Marriage will debut at the festival in the Out of Competition category. The Venice International Film Festival will take place from September 1 to 11. For more information on the event, go here.
Scenes from a Marriage will land on HBO and HBO Max this September, though the premiere date has not yet been announced.
