Nicole Kidman is out for blood in the sinister new trailer for The Beguiled

The initial teaser trailer for Sofia Coppola’s remake of The Beguiled was long on ethereal atmosphere and short on plot, but a newly released trailer for the film gives us a little more insight into the sinister events going on behind closed doors at a Southern girls’ boarding school during the Civil War. This trailer focuses on Miss Martha (Nicole Kidman), the school’s headmistress, whose initial distrust of injured Union soldier John McBurney (Colin Farrell) turns into cold-blooded hatred—and, it appears, bloody revenge—after he disrupts the school’s peaceful atmosphere with his lustful, philandering ways.

Gather your rags, chloroform, saws, and anatomy books, because The Beguiled hits theaters on June 23.
