Ethan Hawke Plays a Fraught Pastor In the Intense (and Weird) Trailer for ‘First Reformed’

Look, as far as the movie’s plot is concerned, your guess is as good as ours, but if you’re looking for terms we’d use to describe how Ethan Hawke looks in this movie, we’d say: “fretful,” “conflicted,” “wracked by doubt,” or “stricken with uncertainty.” First Reformed, and its trailer, look wild.

The cast is pretty loaded, with Ethan Hawke playing the lead, Amanda Seyfried showing up to look worn and on-edge, and Cedric the Entertainer (credited as Cedric Kyles) cast as another pastor.

We have no idea what this is about, but there will be fire and ash and crying and anger and people arguing and looking shocked at one another. Sign us up.
