Maisie Williams is starring in the new movie The Owners, and fans are curious about her latest project. Williams is famous for her character of young warrior Arya Stark in The Game of Thrones series. And this time, she is exploring the genre of horror. The movie is based on a graphic novel by Hermann and Yves H. titled Une Nuit de Pleine Lune. And the adaptation of the film is made by a French director Julius Berg. Julius Berg is also famous for directing a popular French Netflix miniseries titled, La Foret. Maisie William is also a highlight of the movie. She has a huge fan base worldwide because of her brilliant naturalistic performance. In the series The Game of Thrones, she did not have any powers like her younger brother Bran. She did not even pursue the legacy as her brother and sister John and Sansa did. But her values made her character very lovable during the show.
The trailer of the movie The Owner released recently in August 2020, but due to the pandemic COVID-19, the release date of the film is continuously delayed. We will try to cover all the information related to the film.
The trailer of the upcoming film The Owners seems fascinating. It initiated the invasion into a home that went miserably wrong. In the movie, a group of friends, including Maisie Williams, found an empty house loaded with money. They decided to rob the empty home to solve their problems. But the plan was only the beginning of all of the issues. The simple plan backfired and went out of control when the homeowners returned earlier than they expected. And the would-be thieves are thrown in the game of cat and mouse to save their lives.
RLJE Films released the trailer of The Owner. It is also Julius Berg’s directorial debut, and he collaborated with Geoff Cox and Mathieu Gompel on the screenplay. And along with Maisie Williams, the movie has some other impressive casts, including Ian Kenny, Andrew Ellis, Jake Curran, Rita Tushingham, Sylvester McCoy, and Stacha Hicks.
The film is similar to the movie. Don’t Breathe, which was directed by Fede Alvarez. In that movie, a group of friends break into the house of a blind army veteran, who seemed harmless initially, but turned out deadly in the end.
In The Owners, Rita Tushingam and Sylvester McCoy played the character of the elderly couple who own the house. Initially, they seemed innocent, but as the story unfolds, they turned out weirdly well-prepared for the home invasions. The audience got a perfect hint from the trailer that the old couple might not have hurt the invaders yet, but their personality and body language speak that they can hurt them to the extreme levels.
As one of the intruders, Mary, played by Maisie Williams, was cast for the film in February 2019. Maisie, who is named initially as Margaret Constance Williams, is an English actress. She debuted in the series The Game of Thrones at the age of fourteen. She was nominated for the Primetime Emmy Award for Outstanding Supporting Actress in a Drama Series. Williams also starred in the feature film named The Falling, for which she received award recognition and critical acclaim.
In the role of Dr. Huggins, Sylvester McCoy is a Scottish actor. He is famous for playing the seventh incarnation of the Doctor in the sci-fi television series named Doctor Who. Sylvester McCoy is the adopted stage name. His original name was Percy James Patrick Kent-Smith. He started his acting career with an experimental theatre troupe, “The Ken Campbell Roadshow.” He played a character of a stuntman named Sylveste McCoy in a play titled, An Evening with Sylveste Mccoy. In the show, he played many stunts like balancing a fork upon his nose or setting his head on fire. After the show, he got famous after the stage name, and Ken-Smith decided to keep the name. Later he added the alphabet ‘r’ at the end of the name as actors’ superstition that the thirteen letter stage name was unlucky.
The supporting cast is the wife, Ellen Huggins, played by Rita Tushingham. Rita Tushingham is an English actress. She is known for her roles in the films, including The Leather Boys, A Taste of Honey, Doctor Zhivago, The Knack…and How to Get It, and Smashing time. Tushingham won the Cannes Film Festival Award for Best Actress for the movie A Taste of Honey and Most Promising Newcomer at both Golden Globe Awards and BAFTA Awards. Rita made her debut in the film A Taste of Honey in 1961. She was the actress who did an on-screen kiss with another actress. Back then, in 1961, it was a matter of enormous controversy. People were not ready to accept the concept of homosexuals. The film was banned in several countries for the brave content.
Other than that, Tushingham featured in movies like The Bed Sitting Room in 1969, The ‘Human’ Factor in 1975, and Green Eyes in 1977.
The Owners revolves around the plot of a house invasion. What is most interesting about the movie is how the older victims turned over and dominated the young intruders. The character of Nathan needed the money to support a child. In contrast, the role of Mary, played by Williams, is naive, who is pushed to the limits. The trait also will help the character to grow big and will have a high transformation arc.
Release Date of The Owners
The Owners is scheduled to be released on the 4th of September 2020 by RLJE Films. The film is assumed to be digitally distributed. The audience can watch the movie on On-Demand and Digital HD medium. However, it has a tough competition with some other incredible films like Feels Good Man, a documentary about the artist Matt Furie, who was the creator of the cartoon Pepe the Frog and Still Here, which is a crime thriller starring Zazie Beetz.
