Focus Features released a teaser trailer for its upcoming film “Thoroughbreds.”

The film stars Anya Taylor-Joy (“Split”) and Olivia Cooke (“Bates Motel”) as childhood friends reunited as teenagers.

The official synopsis from Focus reads:

“Childhood friends Lily and Amanda reconnect in suburban Connecticut after years of growing apart. Lily has turned into a polished, upper-class teenager, with a fancy boarding school on her transcript and a coveted internship on her resume; Amanda has developed a sharp wit and her own particular attitude, but all in the process of becoming a social outcast. Though they initially seem completely at odds, the pair bond over Lily’s contempt for her oppressive stepfather, Mark, and as their friendship grows, they begin to bring out one another’s most destructive tendencies. Their ambitions lead them to hire a local hustler, Tim, and take matters into their own hands to set their lives straight.”

This is the final film from actor Anton Yelchin, who tragically died in an accident in June 2016.

“Thoroughbreds” was written and directed by newcomer Cory Finley. His first feature film screened at Sundance earlier this year, where Focus Features acquired it.

“Thoroughbreds” will be in theaters March 9, 2018.
