Gore Verbinski is best known for making massive blockbuster films with increasingly elaborate action set pieces. That's just what happens when you make something like the Pirates of the Caribbean trilogy that goes on to earn over a billion dollars and become a legit pop-culture phenomenon. But Verbinski is more than capable of keeping things small and intimate. In fact, he thrives when making the smaller stuff.
One of Verbinski's finest films is the 2002's The Ring, a smart remake on its own that's also a highly influential and truly scary horror movie. And while there's some surprisingly ghastly imagery in the Pirates franchise that's worthy of a horror movie, Verbinski has stayed away from the genre since that 2002 remake. But now he's back with A Cure for Wellness, which you can get a peek at below.
This isn't actually a trailer for the movie, though. Instead, it's a fun ad for the service in the movie, which promises to solve the pesky problem that is human emotion (with presumably dire consequences).
A Cure for Wellness is in theaters February 17, 2017.
