‘Earthquake Bird’ Trailer: Netflix Thriller Has Alicia Vikander in a Dangerous Love Triangle


Alicia Vikander may or may not be behind the disappearance of a young woman in this upcoming Netflix film produced by Ridley Scott.

Netflix has released the trailer for Earthquake Bird, an upcoming thriller set in 1989 Tokyo. Oscar-winner Vikander plays Lucy Fly, a girl with a painful past that begins a relationship with a troubled photographer (Naoki Kobayashi). And then Lily Bridges (Riley Keough) enters the picture. And then Lily goes missing.

Vikander is enough acquire to aquire the attention, but it’s difficult to get a read on this one – which could be a very good thing, for now. The trailer unfolds like a mystery in which our protagonist can’t be trusted, which should make for a interesting thriller. Japan and its culture look to play a big part, too. Intrigued.

Earthquake Bird, written and directed by Wash Westmoreland (Still Alice, Colette), adapting the 2001 novel by Susanna Jones, hits Netflix on November 15.

Official synopsis for Earthquake Bird:

A psychologically unsettling and atmospheric thriller set in 1989 Tokyo from director Wash Westmoreland (Colette, Still Alice), Earthquake Bird follows Lucy Fly (Alicia Vikander), an enigmatic ex-pat haunted by a painful past, who enters into an intense relationship with Teiji (Naoki Kobayashi), a handsome yet similarly troubled local photographer. Lucy’s imperturbable exterior begins to crack when a naive newcomer, Lily Bridges (Riley Keough), becomes entangled in their lives and ends up missing – suspected dead.
