Trailer : Three Thousand Years of Longing

From the ‘Mad’ Genius of George Miller

Dr Alithea Binnie (Tilda Swinton) is an academic – content with life and a creature of reason. While in Istanbul attending a conference, she happens to encounter a Djinn (Idris Elba) who offers her three wishes in exchange for his freedom.

This presents two problems. First, she doubts that he is real and second, because she is a scholar of story and mythology, she knows all the cautionary tales of wishes gone wrong. The Djinn pleads his case by telling her fantastical stories of his past. Eventually she is beguiled and makes a wish that surprises them both.

Directed by George Miller, and starring Idris Elba and Tilda Swinton, “Three Thousand Years of Longing” releases this summer.

Here’s the first trailer.
