'Everybody's dead' in Zoe Kravitz's “Blink Twice” trailer with fiancé Channing Tatum

Kravitz's directorial debut will be released in August.

"Did we just jet off to a billionaire's island with a bunch of strangers?" Alia Shawkat asks Naomi Ackie in the first trailer for Zoë Kravitz's directorial debut, Blink Twice.

The movie, which was previously titled Pussy Island, isn't showing all its cards in this first look. The movie stars Kravitz's fiancé Channing Tatum as tech billionaire Slater King, a seemingly charming man who brings two women he just met to his private island for a weekend of fun with his pals. However, things are clearly not what they seem.

While the trailer keeps much of the story under wraps, it's no secret that things will go poorly. The trailer opens with King's mansion in flames and, with a bloody face, he says, "So, everybody's dead."

The film's original title was something Kravitz said was integral to the story before the change was announced. "The title came from that world. The title is the seed of the story," she previously told The Wall Street Journal. "It represents this time where it would be acceptable for a group of men to call a place that, and the illusion that we're out of that time now."

Nonetheless, Tatum promises that the movie will be bleak. "I play someone a little darker than I've ever played," Tatum told Entertainment Weekly in January. "We are definitely exploring some very uncomfortable themes, and, I don't want to give away too much, but I've definitely never played a character like [this]. It was scary to play, because it's definitely going to be a talk piece when it comes out. I think people are really gonna want to talk about it. That's kind of the point, in a way. It's meant to unsettle you."

In addition to Tatum, Ackie, and Shawkat, the film also stars Adria Arjona, Haley Joel Osment, Christian Slater, Kyle MacLachlan, Geena Davis, Saul Williams, and Simon Rex.

Blink Twice jets into theaters on August 22.
