DESTROYER final trailer – Nicole Kidman is unrecognizable in this gritty thriller

Nicole Kidman is a very respected actress in most circles, but almost always plays elegant or regal roles, partly because she is just that in real life. The new movie DESTROYER will likely be a surprise for many, showing Kidman as a hard-drinking LAPD detective dealing with an undercover operation that went bad. We see her at two important stages in her life, neither of which have her looking very good. Many critics have talked about how this is a bold choice for Kidman both as a character and as a look, but under the direction of Karyn Kusama (THE INVITATION), this might just be one of her best films to date. The cast includes Sebastian Stan, Tatiana Maslany, Toby Kebbell, Scoot McNairy and Bradley Whitford. Check out the final trailer below and tell us your thoughts in the comments.

Sixteen years ago LAPD detective Erin Bell went undercover in the California desert to infiltrate a gang led by the terrifying Silas. When one of their brutal heists goes wrong, Erin’s cover is blown and Silas escapes. But many years later he re-emerges, bolder and more dangerous than ever, with a plan for the mother of all bank heists. This time Erin is going to stop him.

DESTROYER opens December 25, 2018
