I Think We're Alone Now

Peter Dinklage is Del, the last man on Earth… or is he?  The ‘Game of Thrones’ star’s next project is science fiction drama ‘I Think We’re Alone Now’ due for release in September.  Directed by Reed Morano ‘I Think We’re Alone Now’ has already won the  “U.S. Dramatic Special Jury Award for Excellence in Filmmaking” award and was nominated for the Grand Jury prize at the Sundance Film Festival.  The script was written by Mike Makowski (‘Take Me’).

Morano may be best known for her TV work, on ‘The Handmaid’s Tale’ (for which she won the Emmy Award), ‘Billions’ and ‘Halt and Catch Fire’.  Her previous film, ‘Meadowland’ was also a winner and nominee for numerous independent film festival awards.  She is currently shooting ‘The Rhythm Section’ starring Jude Law, Sterling K. Brown and Blake Lively.

Discussing this film, Morano said:

“I like the post-apocalyptic genre, but it’s been done a million times, and I was looking for something a little bit weird, or just a little bit different tonally.  I saw this opportunity to tell a post-apocalyptic story that breaks a lot of the conventions of storytelling in that genre.

“I really appreciate any time a story can be told with visuals or sound rather than straight dialogue.  This is the perfect film to do that.”

In ‘I Think We’re Alone Now’ Dinklage spends his days wandering his now empty town after everyone else vanished.  He seems content in his solitude, but a sudden arrival, Grace played by Elle Fanning, changes everything.  What does Del do when Grace refuses to leave?  The cast also includes Paul Giamatti and Charlotte Gainsbourg.

Strangely enough, while every other movie under the sun has a trailer set to a slowed-down, spooky cover version of a classic pop song, for whatever reason, Morano and her team missed the golden opportunity to set the trailer for ‘I Think We’re Alone Now’ to a slowed-down, spooky cover version of Tiffany’s classic mall pop song of the same name.  But try to enjoy it anyway:

Jason Motes

Jason’s earliest memory is of watching ‘Batman,’ followed shortly by a memory of playing Batman & Robin with a friend, which entailed running outside in just their underwear and towels as capes. When adults told them they couldn’t run around outside in their underwear, both boys promptly whipped theirs off and ran around in just capes. Jason’s father gamely agreed to read him comic books as bedtime stories instead of ‘Snow White.’ (Super Friends being his favorite.) Jason saw all of the original Star Wars movies (and Indiana Jones and Superman and Star Trek…) in the theaters. Yes, he is old. And grew up in the most GEEKTASTIC decade ever, the 80s, devouring a steady diet of GI Joe, Transformers, Masters of the Universe, Princess of Power and (best of all) Jem! (It totally counts as sci fi! They had a sentient computer that projected holograms!) Jason has studied literature, journalism, film history and has a degree in creative writing (and a minor in psychology) from the University of South Alabama. He has worked as a technical writer and proofreader. These days, most of his creative energy goes into his blog and writing for this site! He lives with the cutest puppies ever.
