Ruben Ostlund, the director behind the acclaimed film “Triangle of Sadness,” is currently occupied with a new project.
Ostlund’s “Triangle of Sadness” recently garnered three Oscar nominations in the categories of Best Director, Best Original Screenplay, and Best Director.
His upcoming film, “The Entertainment System is Down,” offers a compelling premise for contemporary audiences to consider.
“The story unfolds on a 15-hour flight where shortly after takeoff, the passengers receive the unsettling news that the in-flight entertainment system is malfunctioning, leaving them without any form of digital distraction as their electronic devices are unable to charge. It’s a horror movie for our tech-dependent society, particularly for those addicted to scrolling,” he stated to Deadline.
“When asked about his reaction to the three Oscar nominations, Ruben shared that they celebrated with a beer, as they had just won six prizes at the Swedish Awards (The Guldbagges) the day before and were not expecting any nominations. He said they were surprised and shocked when they got nominated, particularly for Best Director and Best Picture. They were really happy but didn’t expect it.”
“Ruben also shared that last year he took to Instagram to remember Charlbi Dean, who starred in Triangle of Sadness and passed away at the age of 32 due to an unexpected sudden illness.”
