Exclusie Poster Premiere: The Oxford Murders

The Oxford Murders

Magnolia Pictures has provided us with the opportunity to premiere the poster for their upcoming thriller The Oxford Murders, starring Elijah Wood and John Hurt. The film is due to hit VOD on July 7, then open in limited theaters on August 6. It’s the next film from Álex de la Iglesia, perhaps best known for his 1995 films The Day of the Beast. The full synopsis for The Oxford Murders are below, followed by the poster.

Synopsis: When an elderly woman is viciously murdered in Oxford, her body is discovered by two strangers whose lives are immediately changed forever: Arthur Seldom (John Hurt), a prestigious professor of logic, and Martin (Elijah Wood), a young graduate student who has just arrived at the university hoping to be Seldom’s pupil.

It quickly becomes clear that hers is the first in a series of increasingly bizarre murders, with each victim’s corpse marked by strange symbols. Professor and student join forces to try and crack the code, setting into motion an elaborate game with the killer with ever-increasing stakes. As Martin gets closer to the facts, he grows increasingly unhinged from his grasp on the world around him.

Based on Guillermo Martinez’s award-winning novel, The Oxford Murders is an edgy and intelligent thriller from cult-favorite director, Álex de la Iglesia.
