In a recent trailer for The Power Of The Dog, Kirsten was seen being tormented by co-star Benedict.

Benedict’s cruel character is seen teasing and tormenting a widow played by Kirsten as he runs a ranch in 1925 Montana alongside his brother George, played by Dunst’s real life husband Jesse Plemons. 

Though Cumberbatch harasses Dunst’s character Rose and her son Peter, George takes a liking to them and marries her.
