With films like Uncut Gems and Saint Maud, A24 is showing no signs of slowing down. The production studio has unveiled the trailer to First Cow, an upcoming drama set in the early 1820s in Oregon Territory.

Based on Jonathan Raymond’s novel The Half Life, the story follows Cookie, a cook played by John Magaro, and King Lu, a Chinese immigrant (Orion Lee), who make meals and treats using the milk of a wealthy landowner’s cow: what ensues is a food business that attract early 19th-century traders and settlers because it reminds them of their home of Great Britain. It’s a heart-warming tale of the American dream. Kelly Reichardt, whose last movie was Certain Woman in 2016, is the director of First Cow — the rest of the film’s crew features such names as actor Ewen Bremer, Toby Jones, and musician William Tyler, who developed the score.

Scroll above for a look at First Cow‘s trailer — the film is set to release on March 6, 2020.

Elsewhere, Warner Bros. will be implementing AI to help with film release decisions.
