It is the first movie that Metro-Goldwyn-Mayer and United Artists Releasing have bought since March 17, 2022, when they made a deal with Amazon to merge. Vision Distribution will release the movie in Italy, but Warner Bros. Pictures will take care of all other international markets, starting with this film, as part of a new multi-year deal with MGM.
On August 10, 2022, Chalamet’s Twitter posted the first official teaser for Bones and All. This twenty-eight-second preview tries to show that the movie is a mix of horror and romance since it has a few examples of both.
On September 29, 2022, the full trailer for Bones and All came out. It was made by MGM. Set to Leonard Cohen’s song “You Want It Darker,” the trailer shows glimpses of the violence and romance in Luca Guadagnino’s new movie. On October 5, a new trailer for the movie came out. You can watch it below.
After this came a red band clip called “Sleepover.” Maren, played by Taylor Russell, sneaks out of the house to go to a sleepover with some new friends. This leads to a conversation in which we learn more about Maren’s life and that her mother isn’t there.
What looks like an intimate scene of young girls hanging out soon takes a very dark turn when Maren bites one of her new friends’ fingers. She then runs away to her father, whose reaction shows that this has happened before.
