Hollywood can be a killer in first trailer for Ti West’s MaXXXine

The world will know her name.

After his homage to the psycho-biddy subgenre of horror with the critically acclaimed X and its follow-up Pearl, a demented Disney-like prequel, across 2022, Ti West is closing out his unexpected slasher trilogy with the release of MaXXXine.

Once again headlined by Mia Goth, MaXXXine follows her titular character, Maxine Minx, in 1980s Hollywood, where the adult film star and aspiring actress finally gets her big break.  But as a mysterious killer stalks the starlets of Hollywood – with the real-life incorporation of the infamous Night Stalker serial killer being utilised – a trail of blood threatens to reveal her sinister past.

Featuring an all-star ensemble, including Elizabeth Debicki, Moses Sumney, Michelle Monaghan, Bobby Cannavale, Halsey, Lily Collins, Giancarlo Esposito and Kevin Bacon, MaXXXine is set for release in the United States on July 5th, 2024, and in Australia, through Universal Pictures, on August 1st, 2024.
