Some movies seem to come out of nowhere. Take The Menu. What kind of stylish dark fantasy is this? The movie is about a couple visiting an exclusive remote resort restaurant that has deadly surprises in addition to exotic food. Is it The Cook, the Thief, His Wife, & Her Lover, or a twisted mix of Iron Chef and The Freshman? It also appears to follow the framework of Clue/Cluedo and locked room mysteries like Agatha Christie’s And Then There Were None. Or is it something else entirely? The Menu has an exceptional genre cast mix, featuring Ralph Fiennes (James Bond, Kingsman, Harry Potter series), Anya Taylor-Joy (The Queen’s Gambit, The New Mutants, Unbreakable series), Nicholas Hoult (X-Men series, Mad Max series), and John Leguizamo (The Mandalorian, Ice Age series, John Wick series).
Get on your foodie hat (I guess that’s a chef’s hat, right?) and take a look at Searchlight Pictures’ The Menu:
The Menu is scheduled for release in theaters November 18, 2022.
