UPDATE: Thursday is the day!
The social team at Amazon Studios that is behind the infamous Twitter account for Luca Guadagnino’s Suspiria have been teasing the arrival of a brand new trailer over the last few days. A couple of hours ago, they posted this cryptic tweet:
While many fans have tried to employ the likes of morse code, binary, counting spaces/letters and more to decode the message, we did notice this bearing a resemblance to a hidden message tweet technique that was highlighted by the media in 2014 – the site Twitter Secret Messages, created by New Zealand-based web developer Matthew Holloway. A similar, but differently-coded, technique was used by the team at Paramount for a special website promoting Annihilation earlier this year.
The technique replaces letters with similar-looking characters that hide a second message you can only reveal with the right decoder. Holloway is quick to stress that this isn’t cryptography. Since anyone can use the tool, your hidden meaning is fair game to anyone who tracks down his website and pastes in your text. It’s also patently obvious that this isn’t an ordinary post, so suspicious types will know that something’s up. [Engadget]
We had a go decoding it through the site, which gave us the answer, as also spotted by an eagle-eyed fan shortly after the initial tweet was made – this week.
That means at 6am PT/9am ET/2pm UK (Amazon’s usual launch time) either tomorrow, Tuesday, Wednesday, Thursday or Friday. The first teaser came on a Monday, so could we see it as soon as tomorrow? Time will tell…stay tuned and we’ll have the brand new look as soon as it’s online!
As a darkness builds at the center of a world-renowned dance company, its artistic director, a young American new to the troupe and a grieving psychotherapist become entangled in a bloody, sighing nightmare.
Starring Tilda Swinton, Dakota Johnson, Mia Goth, Chloe Grace Moretz, Jessica Harper, Lutz Ebersdorf and Sylvie Testud, the film premieres September 1 at the Venice Film Festival and is released November 2 in the U.S., with a UK date to be announced.
