The first full-length trailer was released for Pedro Almodóvar's The Skin I Live In (La piel que habito), starring Antonio Banderas, on August 29.
The footage features excerpts from the film with very few lines of dialogue and a mostly impressionistic suggestion of the narrative, with still-frame images and photos interspersed with title cards.
Based on the novel by Thierry Jonquet, Mygale, it is a story of revenge. The thriller centers on a plastic surgeon haunted by his past and obsessed with inventing thick synthetic skin.
The actor and director reunite after working together 20 years ago on Tie Me Up! Time Me Down!.
Banderas has recently appeared in kids films, including Spy Kids, Shrek and the upcoming Puss in Boots, a spin-off of Shrek.
After showing at Cannes, the film has been released in several countries and will be screened at Toronto International Film Festival and the New York Film Festival.
The Skin I Live In will have a limited release in the North America on November 18.
