Staff Reporter | On 03, Apr 2019Reading time: 2 mins
Extremely Wicked, Shockingly Evil and Vile will hit UK cinemas and VOD this May, and a new trailer gives us our first full look at Zac Efron as Ted Bundy.
The film, which co-stars Lily Collins, introduces us to Ted, a handsome, smart, charismatic, affectionate man, and Liz, a single mother, cautious, but smitten with Ted. A picture of domestic bliss, the two seem to have it all figured out. That is until Ted is arrested and charged with a series of increasingly grisly murders. As concern turns to paranoia, Liz is forced to consider how well she knows the man she shares a life with and, as the evidence piles up, decide if Ted is a victim, or just guilty as charged.
Directed by Academy-Award nominee Joe Berlinger (Paradise Lost), the film also stars Kaya Scodelario, John Malkovich, Angela Sarafyan, Jim Parsons and Haley Joel Osment. Berlinger recently helmed the Netflix docuseries about Bundy, Conversations with a Killer, with the VOD service also snapping up the US rights, but in the UK, the movie’s will premiere courtesy of a different streaming giant: Sky Cinema, which will release the film in selected cinemas and on Sky Cinema on Friday 3rd May. Don’t have Sky? You can also stream it on NOW TV, as part of a £11.99 monthly subscription.
