The new trailer for Swan Song starring Oscar winner Mahershala Ali has dropped and it is giving some us major Black Mirror energy except this Apple TV+ sci-fi drama doesn’t seem like it would be a movie that will make you lose all faith in humanity.
Written and directed by Benjamin Cleary, Swan Song is set in the near future and follows Cameron (Ali), a loving husband and father diagnosed with a terminal illness. As a result, he is presented with an alternative solution by his doctor (Glenn Close) to shield his family from grief — and it’s something that could definitely fuck with your emotions.
As Cam grapples with whether or not to alter his family’s fate, he learns more about life and love than he ever imagined. Swan Song explores how far we will go, and how much we’re willing to sacrifice, to make a happier life for the people we love. The film also stars Naomie Harris, Awkwafina, and Adam Beach
Swan Song will be released in theaters and premiere globally on Apple TV+ on December 17. The film is produced by Adam Shulman and Jacob Perlin on behalf of Anonymous Content; Jonathan King on behalf of Concordia Studio; Rebecca Bourke; Mahershala Ali and Mimi Valdés through Know Wonder.
