The first trailer for the English-language remake of the 2017 French thriller My Son has finally arrived.
Driving in the heart of the Highlands, Edmond Murray (James McAvoy) receives a call from his ex-wife (Claire Foy), in tears. Their 7-year-old son went missing from a campsite. Soon it becomes clear that the child was kidnapped, and the parents give way to despair.
My Son sees the return of the original’s director and writer Christian Carion and co-writer Laure Irrmann.
Watch the trailer below.
As noted in the opening of the trailer, McAvoy was not given a script while filming. This approach presents a unique and thrilling viewing experience, as both the lead actor and the audience will uncover the film’s underlying mystery at the same time. The original film’s star, Guillaume Canet, was presented with the same challenge.
My Son will be available to stream on Peacock on September 15.
