A24 has revealed the first image from the upcoming film The Lighthouse, the highly anticipated new movie from The Witch writer/director Robert Eggers. The debut follows the news that the film will have its world premiere at the Cannes Film Festival as part of the Directors’ Fortnight program.
We know next to nothing about the film’s plot, other than the fact that it revolves around a lighthouse keeper named Old and takes place in the 19th Century. Robert Pattinson and Willem Dafoe fill the two lead roles, as seen in this debut image, and they are rocking some truly tremendous facial hair. It also appears as though Eggers shot the film in black-and-white, which is welcome news.
