Waiting For The Barbarians trailer: Johnny Depp plays a sinister Colonel in the colonial drama that also stars Mark Rylance and Robert Pattinson

The trailer for the new colonial drama film — Waiting For The Barbarians — dropped on Wednesday.

Johnny Depp, Robert Pattinson and Mark Rylance are among the star-studded cast for the period piece that marks Columbian filmmaker Ciro Guerra’s English-language directorial debut.

Based on the 1980 novel of the same name by Nobel Prize-winning author J. M. Coetzee, the story centers on an unnamed magistrate who lives in an unnamed colonial outpost of a large empire who begins to question where his loyalties truly lie with the arrival of the sinister Colonel Joll, played by Deep.

Academy Award-winner Rylance plays the magistrate who’s looking forward to an easy retirement. 

But that all gets placed on the back-burner when rumors surface that the area’s indigenous people, called Barbarians by the colonists, might be preparing to attack the town.

Led by Depp’s Colonel Joll, the regime’s army gets deployed to the town, and begin a series of ruthless interrogations following the capture of Barbarians.

Some of them are tortured or killed as the army regime prepares for a larger campaign.
