"No matter where you go, there you are."


Watch Demi Moore in a teaser clip for The Substance

Following a riotous World Premiere In Competition at the 77th Cannes Film Festival on Sunday, 19th May, MUBI has released a first-look clip for Coralie Fargeat’s upcoming feature The Substance, starring Demi Moore, Margaret Qualley and Dennis Quaid.

Have you ever dreamt of a better version of yourself?

You. Only better in every way.


You’ve got to try this new product. It’s called The Substance.


It generates another you.

A new, younger, more beautiful, more perfect, you.

And there’s only one rule: You share time.

One week for you. One week for the new you.

Seven days each. A perfect balance.

Easy. Right?

If you respect the balance… what could possibly go wrong?

MUBI will be releasing the film theatrically in the UK and Ireland, with further details to be announced.

Written and directed by Coralie Fargeat (Revenge), The Substance stars Demi Moore (G.I. Jane, A Few Good Men, Indecent Proposal), Margaret Qualley (Once Upon a Time in Hollywood, Maid, Kinds of Kindness, Fosse Verdon), and Dennis Quaid (Far from Heaven, The Rookie, The Day After Tomorrow).

Director of Photography on the film is Benjamin Kracun (Promising Young Woman, Beast), co-editors are Coralie Fargeat, Jerome Eltabet (Revenge) and Valentin Féron, music is composed by Raffertie (I May Destroy You), Production Design is led by Stanislas Reydellet (Le Bal Des Folles), and Costume Design is by Emmanuelle Youchnovski (Café de Flore, La belle époque).

The Substance, which is produced by Coralie Fargeat, and Eric Fellner and Tim Bevan for Working Title, comes after Fargeat’s acclaimed debut feature Revenge, which world premiered at the Toronto International Film Festival in 2017 and was written, directed and co-edited by Fargeat. Alexandra Loewy of Working Title and Nicolas Royer of A Good Story are Executive Producers.
