With Miss Sloane out later this month in the U.S., we have a number of exciting projects featuring Jessica Chastain to look forward to. Deluxe Digital Cinema have sent out the first trailer for Niki Caro’s The Zookeeper’s Wife to North American cinemas, which is slated to play with Tom Ford’s Nocturnal Animals.

We expect Focus Features to release it online by Friday, and we will be sure to have it here as soon as it lands.

The time is 1939 and the place is Poland, homeland of Antonina Zabinski and her husband, Dr. Jan Zabinski. The Warsaw Zoo flourishes under Jan’s stewardship and Antonina’s care. When their country is invaded by the Nazis, Jan and Antonina are forced to report to the Reich’s newly appointed chief zoologist, Lutz Heck. The Zabinskis covertly begin working with the Resistance and put into action plans to save the lives of hundreds from what has become the Warsaw Ghetto.

Based on Diane Ackerman’s book, the film is released March 31, 2017 in the U.S. and May 5 in the UK.
