Sofia Coppola's work behind the camera is undeniably stunning; from her highly praised directorial debut The Virgin Suicides (1999) and her Academy Award winning Lost in Translation (2003), to her satirical teen crime film The Bling Ring (2013), Coppola has proved that she is always capable of new and exciting things with every project she works on. And in seeing the latest trailer for her new film The Beguiled, competing for the Palme d'Or at this year's Cannes Film Festival, it proves that Coppola is always guaranteed to try something different.

The Beguiled, a remake of the 1971 Clint Eastwood film of the same, is a Civil War-era drama that tells the story of injured Union soldier John McBurney (Colin Farrell) who is taken into a women's boarding school by headmistress Martha Farnsworth (Nicole Kidman). The cast also includes Kirsten Dunst (her fourth time working with Coppola) as Edwina Dabney, a teacher at the boarding school, and Elle Fanning as Alicia, a student at the school.

The trailer is full of sexual tension, as all three leading ladies have their sights set on Farrell. But from what it appears like in the trailer, Farrell's man playing ways causes a rivalry between the women in the house, and eventually, leads the trio to turn on him. Resident headmistress and bad ass Kidman can be heard urgently saying, "Bring me the anatomy book." Of course this comes after she asks someone to bring her a saw. We predict the amputation of Farrell's legs at the hands of these Southern belles.

The Beguiled will be released in theaters June 23. Watch the latest trailer below.
