Armie Hammer and Dakota Johnson in trailer for ‘Wounds’

WOUNDS is a probing thriller from BAFTA winning writer/director Babak Anvari, following his 2016 debut feature Under the Shadow. The new movie advances the filmmaker’s examinations of everyday lives being upended by inner demons and external menace, as New Orleans bartender Will’s (Armie Hammer) retrieval of a lost phone subjects him to disturbing visions; pulled deeper into poisoned interactions with live-in girlfriend Carrie (Dakota Johnson) and bar regular Alicia (Zazie Beetz), Will’s rage escalates as the warping reality of his existence turns him towards a frightening portal.
