‘The Menu’ Release Date 2022, Cast, Trailer, and When Will It Be Released?

Prepare to make a reservation for one messed-up dining experience, as the 2022 film The Menu prepares to serve audiences a dark comedy treat. So, what is The Menu cooking up? (OK, we believe we’ve exhausted all food/restaurant puns.)

In addition to an all-star cast, many members of The Menu’s creative team have ties to one of the best shows on television, Succession.

This includes producer Adam McKay, director Mark Mylod, and Will Tracy, one-half of the screenwriting team. Will The Menu have the same satirical bite as the HBO show?

Everything we know about The Menu is listed below.

When Will The Menu Be Released?

The Menu is scheduled to be released on November 18 in both the United States and the United Kingdom.

With a release date so close to Oscar season, will The Menu be hoping for Oscar consideration, or will it be more of a fun alternative to the usual awards fare? Is it possible to have both?

What is the Plot of the Menu?

The Menu is the brainchild of screenwriters Seth Reiss and Will Tracy. The film is described as a blend of comedy, horror, and thriller elements set in an exclusive high-class dining experience. The following is Searchlight Pictures’ official synopsis:

“A couple visits a coastal island to dine at an exclusive restaurant where the chef has prepared a lavish menu, complete with some shocking surprises.”

The official trailer, which you can watch below, paints a clearer picture of the plot. The dinner is only one component of the experience, as the guests appear to be involved in a deadly hunt.

Who is in the Cast of the Menu?

Ralph Fiennes, the legendary actor and Academy Award nominee, is no stranger to playing evil characters, and Chef Slowik appears to be no exception. Fiennes reportedly faced real-life scrutiny after playing the horrifyingly and shockingly evil antagonist of Schindler’s List, in addition to playing iconic figures such as Rameses in The Prince of Egypt and Lord Voldemort in the Harry Potter series.

Why? Because the character he played was so evil, those who saw it assumed Fiennes possessed traits similar to the figure. If that isn’t proof of his ability to play villains, we don’t know what is.

Anya Taylor-Joy will play the title character in Margot. Taylor-Joy has had a deservedly successful career since her breakout performance in The Witch, with credits including Split, Last Night in Soho, The Queen’s Gambit, and The Northman. Margot appears to be the most grounded character in the film, rejecting this absurd food snobbishness.

The same cannot be said for Nicholas Hoult’s Tyler, who is a total snob when it comes to the culinary arts. Though he did not work with Taylor Joy on the Oscar-winning blockbuster Mad Max: Fury Road, she will appear in the upcoming spin-off Furiosa.

John Leguizamo, Janet McTeer, Aimee Carrero, Judith Light, Hong Chau, Christina Brucato, Arturo Castro, Reed Birney, and Rob Yang complete the main cast.

Is There a Trailer for the Menu?

Serves up the official trailer for The Menu. It gives a more focused look at the plot and has some hilariously dark comedic moments, such as waiters singing “Happy Birthday” in the most cringe-worthy way possible.

Who is Making The Menu?

The Menu is directed by Mark Mylod. Much of Mylod’s career has been spent on television, where he has directed episodes of Shameless (both the US and UK versions), Entourage, Games of Thrones, and Succession, including four episodes from the most recent season 3.

Succession also has Mylod as an executive producer. Prior to The Menu, he appeared in Ali G Indahouse, The Big White, and What’s Your Number.
