Poor Things: UK date change and Emma Stone in behind-the-scenes look

The UK release date for Poor Things has been delayed (boo) but there’s a sexy new featurette (yay!).

Okay, the bad news is we have to wait a few more months in the UK for Yorgos Lanthimos’ gothic Frankensetin-esque thriller, Poor Things, as the UK release date has been shifted from September to January.

However, the good news is we have a trippy new poster to gawk at (above), plus a behind-the-scenes featurette, featuring Emma Stone discussing her character Bella, Bella’s sexuality and taking on a producer role.

Watch it here…

Poor Things follows the incredible tale and fantastical evolution of Bella Baxter, a young woman brought back to life by the brilliant and unorthodox scientist Dr. Godwin Baxter.

Under Baxter’s protection, Bella is eager to learn. Hungry for the worldliness she is lacking, Bella runs off with Duncan Wedderburn, a slick and debauched lawyer, on a whirlwind adventure across the continents. Free from the prejudices of her times, Bella grows steadfast in her purpose to stand for equality and liberation.

Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos (The Favourite), from a screenplay by Tony McNamara (Cruella), Poor Things stars Emma Stone (Lala Land), Willem Dafoe (The Lighthouse), Mark Ruffalo (Avengers Assemble), Ramy Youssef (Mr Robot), Jerrod Carmichael (Transformers: The Last Knight), and Christopher Abbott (Possessor).

Poor Things will be released in UK cinemas on 12 January 2024.
