Watch the full JoJo Rabbit trailer for Taika Waititi’s anti-Nazi film
While the first trailer for star/director Taika Waititi‘s JoJo Rabbit was an interesting tone poem of sorts, the new trailer from Fox Searchlight gives a better idea of the heart and soul of the anti-Nazi film. Check out the full JoJo Rabbit trailer below!
The film stars Golden Globe-nominated Scarlett Johansson (Avengers: Infinity War), Academy Award winner Sam Rockwell (Three Billboards Outside Ebbing, Missouri), Rebel Wilson (Pitch Perfect), Thomasin McKenzie (The Hobbit: The Battle of the Five Armies), Alfie Allen (Game of Thrones), Stephen Merchant (Logan) and introducing Roman Griffin Davis as Jojo.
Waititi brings his signature style of humor and pathos to a World War II satire. In Jojo Rabbit, the story follows an awkward young German boy (Davis) raised by a single mother (Johansson), and whose only ally is his imaginary friend Hitler (Waititi). His naïve patriotism is tested when he meets a young girl (McKenzie) who upends his worldviews, forcing him to face his biggest fears.
The film’s producers are Waititi, Carthew Neal (Hunt for the Wilderpeople) and Chelsea Winstanley (What We Do in the Shadows) with Kevan Van Thompson (The Zookeeper’s Wife) serving as executive producer.
JoJo Rabbit is set to open on in theaters on October 18.
