New trailer, images, and a fresh poster for Carl Tibbetts’ end-of-the-world thriller “Retreat”. Or, more precisely, possibly end-of-the-world thriller, as there seems to be plenty of doubt about the worthiness of Jamie Bell’s character in the film. He could just be a psycho with a gun, as it turns out. Or not. I suppose that’ll be one of the film’s big reveals — whether he’s telling the truth or not. We shall see. The film also co-stars Cillian Murphy and Thandie Newton, and is, for all intents and purposes, a 3-person movie.
Kate and Martin escape from personal tragedy to an Island Retreat. Cut off from the outside world, their attempts to recover are shattered when a Man is washed ashore, with news of airborne killer disease that is sweeping through Europe.
The film is the directorial debut of Carl Tibbetts, who also co-writes the script with Janice Hallett.
