Salvador Dalí is one of the most famous and iconic artists of the last century, but a lot of people don’t know his life story. A trailer has just been released for the new movie, “Dalíland” which stars Ben Kingsley as Salvador Dalí and was directed by Mary Harron.
Dalíland is about the famed painter Salvador Dalí and his wife Gala (Barbara Sukowa) in 1974. The film follows James, played by Christopher Briney from “The Summer I Turned Pretty,” an assistant who was given the task of helping Dalí not only make sure he completes his paintings for an upcoming art gallery show but also to get a glimpse into their chaotic yet eccentric world. However, this movie is more than that as it dives deeper into the last years of the marriage between these two legendary figures. Directors Harron and Kingsley compared it to looking at a relationship under a microscope or analyzing its downfall.
The new movie trailer shows some of the wild things that James did with artist Salvador Dalí. This includes him drinking, dancing and even painting people’s bums onto a canvas! The trailer also looks at how Dalí faced problems in his life including money issues & marital troubles. It stars Rupert Graves, Suki Waterhouse, Andreja Pejic and Ezra Miller.
