We won’t need to wait much for the new project of our new favorite cinema duo.


  • Emma Stone reunites with Yorgos Lanthimos for the third time in Kinds of Kindness, an anthology movie, releasing this year, on June 21.
  • Their previous collaborations, The Favourite and Poor Things, have brought much success and community ’s recognition to both of them.
  • While the details of Kinds of Kindness are not revealed, Stone’s role in it is predicted to be brilliant and even award-winning.

Emma Stone, one of the main actresses of today’s industry, started her fruitful collaboration with the Greek filmmaker Yorgos Lanthimos years ago, which resulted in the huge success of the 2018 movie titled The Favourite, gaining them numerous Academy nominations, including Best Picture and Best Supporting Actress for Stone.

The trend has continued in Poor Things, last year’s accoladed banger, which brought the actress her second Oscar on March 10 and gained much recognition. Just days after the ceremony, it has just been announced the next Lanthimos’ project starring the same Stone is just about the corner, being scheduled to premiere in theaters on June 21.

While the details of this movie, titled Kinds of Kindness, remain under wraps, its director had previously described it as an anthology film, featuring “three different stories, with four or five actors who play one part in each story”. It is going to feature some actors from Poor Things, apart from the starring Stone, - Willem Dafoe and Margaret Qualley - with Jesse Plemons, Joe Alwyn and Hunter Schafer joining the cast.

The massive success of Poor Things and Stone’s Showtime series The Curse, combined with the recent announcement of her new leading role in Ari Aster’s new project Eddington, which is also going to feature such movie stars, as Joaquin Phoenix, Pedro Pascal and Austin Butler, makes the actress’ Kinds of Kindness much more anticipated, as her role (or, presumably, roles) in an anthology promises to be extremely remarkable.

Some of the Internet users already speculate on the potential third Oscar award for Stone, which would make her “the youngest to ever do it”, while there is a strong agreement among fans that she and Lanthimos together make “quite the dream team” and “a great combo”, as voiced by the user @JokerFaces2, and it’s hard to argue with it.

Thus, Stone keeps working with one of the most inventive and at the same time recognized director of the modern cinema, having already made two top-rated movies together, which can turn them into a prominent iconic actor-director duo, just like the one of Robert De Niro and Martin Scorsese, who are famous for their movies together.

You can now watch both The Favourite and Poor Things on Prime.
