As if being single wasn’t hard enough.

In the new trailer for The Lobster, Colin Farrell stars as a divorcee in a dystopian world who must find love within 45 days. Otherwise, he’ll be turned into an animal and released into the woods. Accompanied by his brother, who has already been turned into a dog, Farrell checks into a hotel for single people as the clock starts to tick.

Directed by Yorgos Lanthimos (Dogtooth), The Lobster first premiered at Cannes, where it won the jury prize, and it also stars Rachel Weisz and John C. Reilly. Watch the first trailer from the Guardian below.
