Natalie Dormer Is Beyond Menacing In 1st ‘Picnic At Hanging Rock’ Trailer

Natalie Dormer leads the new trailer for the rebooted Picnic At Hanging Rock miniseries, lending the legendary Australian story a fresh sense of menace.

The former Game Of Thrones scene-stealer portrays the headmistress of an Aussie boarding school in the early 1900s, tasked with figuring out what in the hell happened to a bunch of missing students.

If you ever watched Peter Weir‘s 1975 film, you’ll know the story ain’t so simple: expect something a little less parochial, and a touch more psychedelic.

If that ain’t enough to tide you over, cop some more imagery – and the series’ trippy poster.
