Awards season is right around the corner and a very clear map of the potential films and their stars who are slated to secure nominations is beginning to flesh out. A Star Is Born, Suspiria, Assassination Nation, and Bohemian Rhapsody are only a few films that have brought audiences to their feet this year, but recently a new contender has emerged and has critics and cinephiles raving with anticipation: VOX LUX.

Directed by Brady Corbet and starring Natalie Portman, Jude Law, and newcomer Raffey Cassidy, the film follows Celeste (Portman) whose career as a revolutionary pop star spurt from an act of terror and now must relive and continue to inspire through the modern climate of all too present terror in the world.

With a soundtrack penned by Sia and reviews claiming it's Natalie Portman greatest performance to date, V can't – for lack of a better word – fucking wait.

Watch the chilling trailer to VOX LUX below:
