Three thousand years waiting for you: first image with Tilda Swinton and Idris Elba

George Miller’s film is selected out of competition at Cannes.

Seven years after his last feature film, the monumental Mad Max: Fury Roadwhich was presented at Cannes, George Miller will be back on the Croisette for his new film. Three thousand years waiting for you (Three Thousand Years of Longing in original version), has indeed been selected out of competition, and Metropolitan Films, which distributes the film in France (the date is not yet known, has just unveiled a first image to celebrate.

We therefore find the two main protagonists, embodied by Tilda Swinton and Idris Elba, who does not embody an elf, contrary to what one might believe looking at the photo, but a genius. The official synopsis of Three thousand years waiting for youwhich will therefore be a fantasy romance, was also revealed:

Alithea Binnie (Tilda Swinton), although content with her life, takes a skeptical view of the world. One day, she meets a genius (Idris Elba) who offers to grant her three wishes in exchange for her freedom.

But Alithea is far too erudite to ignore that, in fairy tales, wish stories end badly.

He then pleads her case by telling her about his extraordinary past. Seduced by his stories, she ends up formulating a most surprising wish.
