Flux Gourmet trailer: Asa Butterfield makes noise in bizarre thriller coming to theatres in June

by Natalie Kiser

When the teaser trailer for writer/director Peter Strickland’s new film Flux Gourmet arrived online back in February, all we knew was that IFC Midnight would be giving the movie a theatrical and VOD release sometime this summer. Now we know its release date is June 24th – and a full trailer for it has just been unveiled! You can check it out in the embed above.

Flux Gourmet has the following synopsis:

A sonic collective who can’t decide on a name takes up a residency at an institute devoted to culinary and alimentary performance. The members Elle di Elle, Billy Rubin and Lamina Propria are caught up in their own power struggles, only their dysfunctional dynamic is furthermore exacerbated when they have to answer to the institute’s head, Jan Stevens. With the various rivalries unfolding, Stones, the Institute’s ‘dossierge’ has to privately endure increasingly fraught stomach problems whilst documenting the collective’s activities. Upon hearing of Stones’s visits to the gastroenterologist, Dr Glock, Elle coerces him into her performances in a desperate bid for authenticity. The reluctant Stones puts up with the collective’s plans to use his condition for their art whilst Jan Stevens goes to war with Elle over creative differences.
