Watch The New Trailer For ‘Where The Crawdads Sing’ Starring Daisy Edgar-Jones

Everyone has been waiting for the upcoming thriller ‘Where The Crawdads Sing‘ after loving the book, which was featured in Oprah’s bookclub. The novel was a huge success. It has sold over 12 million copies, making it one of the best selling books of all time.

And now Hollywood is hoping to get a taste of that success. This movie stars Daisy Edgar-Jones and Harris Dickinson.

Where the Crawdads Sing tells the story of Kya, an abandoned girl who raised herself to adulthood in the dangerous marshlands of North Carolina. For years, rumors of the ‘Marsh Girl’ haunted Barkley Cove, isolating the sharp and resilient Kya from her community. Drawn to two young men from town, Kya opens herself to a new and startling world; but when one of them is found dead, she is immediately cast by the community as the main suspect. As the case unfolds, the verdict as to what actually happened becomes increasingly unclear, threatening to reveal the many secrets that lay within the marsh.

The studio is taking a chance by releasing this project in the middle of summer, going up against some pretty huge blockbuster films. It’s currently set to hit theaters on July 15, 2022, which will have it battling out Thor: Love and Thunder and Jordan Peele’s upcoming horror flick, Nope, the following week.

Watch Daisy Edgar-Jones In The First Trailer For ‘Where the Crawdads Sing’

Feel like you’ve been hearing the name Daisy Edgar-Jones a lot? Well, it’s because the 23-year-old English actress is becoming one of the hottest stars in Hollywood. After gaining fame from her leading role in the super popular miniseries ‘Normal People‘ Jones went on to star in the recent Hulu horror/thriller, Fresh.

Now, you can find her in the first trailer for the upcoming thriller, Where the Crawdads Sing, which is based on the beautiful novel of the same name by Delia Owens.

The story follows a woman named Kya from the North Carolina marshes who becomes a suspect in the murder of a man she was once involved with.

In addition to Edgar-Jones, this movie also stars Harris Dickinson, Taylor John Smith and David Strathairn.

Edgar-Jones had this to say about her character…

I fell so deeply in love with the world that Delia created, she has such a poetry to her writing. And her characters are so incredibly special, and deep and complex — particularly Kya, of course. I would describe Kya as fiercely resilient, wonderfully curious and strong. And I just feel so privileged and excited to be playing her.

Where the Crawdads Sing will hit theaters on July 15. Check out the trailer below…
