THREE THOUSAND YEARS OF LONGING Teaser Highlights First Footage From George Miller's Epic Fantasy Romance

The first trailer for Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller's Three Thousand Years of Longing will be online this Friday, but for now, we have some stunning shots from a brief teaser.

Mad Max: Fury Road director George Miller's next project, fantasy romance Three Thousand Years of Longing, is set to premiere during the Cannes Film Festival ahead of its theatrical release this August, and we have a first look at some footage via a brief teaser.

We still don't know very much about Miller's adaptation of A.S. Byatt's short story, The Djinn in the Nightingale’s Eye, but if stars Idris Elba and Tilda Swinton aren't a big enough draw, take a look at these stunning shots.

The filmmaker recently described Three Thousand Years of Longing as the “opposite” of his acclaimed Fury Road, and it's not difficult to understand why. The story follows a scholar (Swinton) on a trip to a speaking engagement in Istanbul who inadvertently summons a Djinn (Elba). The genie-like entity then details his long journey through fantasy and history as he endeavors to tempt this scholar — who claims she wants for nothing — to make her three wishes.

"When I say it’s the anti-Mad Max, I mean it only in the sense that it’s got way more dialogue than the very laconic Fury Road," said Miller during a recent interview with Deadline. "Most of that was shot on location in the deserts of Southern Africa. This one was shot basically indoors, with only a couple of outdoor scenes. Its scale is smaller, at least in terms of its physical scale, even though, yes, it is set over 3,000 years. But also, Fury Road was a story that essentially happened over three days and two nights, and this happened over 3,000 years, so that’s what I meant by the anti-Mad Max."

The full trailer will be online this Friday, so be sure to check back then.
