We can’t wait to see this.

Protagonist Pictures has released a first-look image from psychological thriller “Keepers,” which it is presenting to international buyers at the Cannes Film Market. The film, which has just concluded its six-week shoot, stars Gerard Butler, Peter Mullan and Connor Swindells as a trio of lighthouse keepers pitted against each other on a remote Scottish island.

“Keepers” is the feature debut of Danish director Kristoffer Nyholm, who recently worked on the BBC and FX’s “Taboo,” starring Tom Hardy. He was also a regular director on hit Danish crime drama “The Killing,” for which he was nominated for a BAFTA television award. Nyholm received a second BAFTA nomination for his work on 2015 miniseries “The Enfield Haunting,” starring Timothy Spall.

Inspired by a real-life unsolved mystery, “Keepers” was co-written by Celyn Jones and Joe Bone. It tells the story of three lighthouse keepers arriving on a remote, uninhabited island for a six-week shift, who discover something potentially life-changing that isn’t theirs to keep. Soon the three are locked in a tense battle for survival, fed by isolation and paranoia, as personal greed replaces loyalty.

It was shot on on location in Dumfries and Galloway, using three lighthouses across the region to depict the imposing, solitary building at the heart of the story. (source)

OMG THE BRIDGE! D: MASSIVE SPOILER ALERT IF YOU HAVEN'T SEEN IT YET BUT OH MY GOD THE FEELINGS

The writers for that thing are brilliant and evil and oh my god the feelings D: Hans Rosenfeldt >:c Damn you for creating such amazing, relatable characters before killing   them D:< 

First Anja.  

Then Daniel ;A; I mean, he was a jackass at first then he sort of went a little nothing-really-matters crazy but he torched the chocolate factory to save those kids but then he was killed ;A; 

And then Saga and I thought she was going to die and then August and by the time he died  

Playing with my feelings D: When I thought he was alive, then they found him but they found him too late and Martin had shot an innocent woman by then but August had already died and by the end 

The bottom line is, I get way too attached to Danish crime drama.
