New Yorgos Lanthimos Movie ‘Bugonia’ 2025 Release 5

Bugonia, Yorgos Lanthimos’ next film to star Emma Stone and Jesse Plemons, will be released wide in the U.S. on Nov. 7, 2025, Focus Features said on Tuesday.

Universal Pictures will release Bugonia internationally, excluding Korea, where CJ ENM will handle the local release. The film, written by Will Tracy, follows two conspiracy-obsessed men who kidnap the high-powered CEO of a major company, convinced that she is an alien intent on destroying planet Earth.

Bugonia sees Lanthimos leave his recent home of Searchlight Pictures, which has released many of his films, including the Oscar winners Poor Things and The Favourtie as well as the upcoming Kinds of Kindness. Lanthimos’ latest movie is based on the South Korean sci-fi comedy, Save the Green Planet!, written and directed by Jang Joon-Hwan and produced by Sidus.

Stone also worked with Lanthimos on The Favourite and Poor Things, while Plemons and Stone appear in Kinds of Kindness. Kindness is in theaters this weekend and also stars Willem Dafoe, Margaret Qualley and Hong Chau. The Oscar-nominated Greek director is also known for titles like DogtoothThe Lobster and The Killing of a Sacred Deer.

The English language version of Bugonia was developed by CJ ENM with Ari Aster and Lars Knudsen at Square Peg. The production was financed by Fremantle and CJ ENM. 

The producer credits are shared by Ed Guiney and Andrew Lowe (Element Pictures), Lanthimos, Aster and Lars Knudsen (Square Peg), Stone (Fruit Tree) and Miky Lee and Jerry Ko (CJ ENM).
