‘Love Lies Bleeding’ Trailer: Kristen Stewart Falls For A Bodybuilder In Romantic Crime Thriller Coming To Sundance

It’s going to be a busy 2024 for Kristen Stewart if next month’s Sundance is any indication. The actress has two movies debuting at the festival, both surrounding unconventional romances. One is Love Me which pairs her with Steven Yeun. The other is Love Lies Bleeding, a romantic thriller by Saint Maud director Rose Glass that centers on the relationship between a lonely woman and an ambitious bisexual bodybuilder played by Katy O’Brian.

As seen in the new trailer, this romance sparks violence that leads them down the path of criminality. Also in the cast are Ed Harris, Jena Malone, Dave Franco, and Anna Baryshnikov.

O’Brian is an actress to keep a watch on, too. The rising star has recently scored roles in Ant-Man and the Wasp: Quantumania, The Mandalorian, the upcoming Twister sequel, Twisters.

Here is the official synopsis: Reclusive gym manager Lou falls hard for Jackie, an ambitious bodybuilder headed through town to Las Vegas in pursuit of her dream. But their love ignites violence, pulling them deep into the web of Lou’s criminal family.

Along with the trailer, A24 has released a poster with the perfect tagline: “Revenge Gets Ripped.” Just about says it all, I think. I’ll be looking forward to seeing this one next month.

Love Lies Bleeding will be released into theaters on March 8th 2024.
