First Marrowbone teaser reveals a sinister presence haunting Anya Taylor-Joy
The first sinister teaser trailer for screenwriter Sergio G. Sanchez’s directorial debut Marrowbone has dropped.
Marrowbone stars Anya Taylor-Joy, who recently wowed everyone with her acting turns in The Witch, Morgan and Split, alongside Mia Goth (A Cure for Wellness), George Mackay (Captain Fantastic) and Charlie Heaton (Stranger Things). The movie may be Sanchez’s first directing gig (he also wrote the script), dude is no stranger to horror. Sanchez penned the screenplay for the 2007 Spanish horror movie The Orphanage, which was directed by J.A. Bayona (Penny Dreadful, A Monster Calls), who also serves as executive producer on the upcoming film.
So, what’s Marrowbone about? Here’s the synopsis: A young man and his four younger siblings, who have kept secret the death of their beloved mother in order to remain together, are plagued by a sinister presence in the sprawling manor in which they live.
Marrowbone will be released in movie theaters in Spain on October 27. There’s no North American release date yet, but here’s hoping we’re going to see this sooner rather than later.

Hollywood’s Next Big Thing: ‘The Witch’ Breakout Anya Taylor-Joy Goes From Ballet to Studio Thrillers
The actress (and secret rapper) has parlayed Sundance buzz into lead roles and almost-“it” girl status.

Anya Taylor-Joy became one of those brief Sundance sensations in 2015 with her very first movie role, playing the eldest daughter in a Puritan family threatened by witchcraft in The Witch. A year later, A24 finally is set to release the film Feb. 19. But she’s used the time well. Raised in Argentina and the U.K. as the youngest of six children, the former ballet dancer already has shot lead roles in Morgan, Fox’s sci-fi thriller directed by Luke Scott, Ridley Scott’s son, and M. Night Shyamalan’s new thriller Split. Next up is the drama Huntsville opposite Shea Whigham.
What do you love about acting?
I never feel happier than when I’m on set. I never fit in as a kid. I always felt that there was something different about me. And when I’m on a movie set, it sounds cheesy, but I really do feel complete.
How did you get the role in The Witch?
I put an audition on tape. I read the script the night before, which was dumb because I did not sleep. In the script, my character was written as sort of plain, and I thought, “I’m sort of weird looking,” so I didn’t think I would get it. I later found out that I was the first tape [director] Rob [Eggers] saw, but he thought, “It can’t be that easy,” so then he watched 1,000 more tapes before he gave it to me.
What filmmakers would you love to work with?
Everyone? (Laughs.) I would love to work with [Quentin] Tarantino. I’d love to work with the Coen brothers. And Steven Spielberg. E.T. was big for me.
What was your first audition?
Maleficent. As the biggest Disney fan, I was dying. I was so nervous, I was shaking. I cried for a very long time after I didn’t get it.
Whom have you been starstruck around?
Dan Romer, who scored Beasts of the Southern Wild. I listen to that soundtrack all the time. And I would die if I met Saoirse Ronan. When I was 15, I watched all of her movies in one day.
Do you have any secret talents?
I’m a surprisingly good rapper. I was hanging out with the director of my next film [Huntsville’s Eric England], and he put on “Rap God” by Eminem, and I rapped the fast bit. I love it. It wakes my brain up in the morning.
What are you looking for in the future?
I’ve been very lucky with the roles that I’ve played in that they were wonderful roles for women. They’re incredible, flawed characters that I really gravitate toward. I just never want anybody to be able to put me in a box.
