Netflix released the English trailer for the film The Wonderful Story of Henry Sugar on Thursday, directed by American Wes Anderson, and based on the book of the same name by author Roald Dahl.
The film – lasting 39 minutes – tells the story of a rich man who discovers a way to read through objects, a superpower which he first uses to cheat at the casino. It stars Benedict Cumberbatch, Ralph Fiennes, Dev Patel, Sir Ben Kingsley and Richard Ayoade.
This is a second adaptation of the work of the British Roald Dahl for Wes Anderson, who directed Fantastic Master Fox in 2009.
Premiering two weeks ago at the Venice Film Festival, The Marvelous Story of Henry Sugar will be available on Netflix on September 27.
