Teaser Trailer Released for The Guest

26 June 2014 12:53 PM, PDT | DailyDead | See recent DailyDead news »

Last year, they brought horror to a family’s cabin in the woods. Now, they’re bringing it to another family’s doorstep, this time at their house. The Guest, the next film from director Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett—the makers of You’re Next—will open in theaters this September. In the meantime, a teaser trailer has dropped by for a visit.

“From the director of You’Re Next and featuring a standout, badass performance from Dan Stevens (“Downton Abbey”), comes The Guest: a tense, action-packed and unpredictable film like everything and nothing you’ve ever seen before. Empire Magazine called it “a demented action-horror hybrid of sci-fi conspiracy thriller and gore-fest”, and Vanity Fair Us said, “The Guest is big, it’s bold, it’s badass, full of flavor Hollywood wishes it could pour over its vanilla blockbusters.”

Teaser Trailer For The Guest

26 June 2014 8:21 AM, PDT | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

We caught Adam Wingard’s latest thriller, The Guest, at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, where we liked what we saw. The film is headed to UK cinemas and the first teaser has now arrived online. Dan Stevens – in a role a world away from the good-natured Matthew Crawley of Downton Abbey – is David, a soldier who shows up at the home of the Peterson family claiming to be a friend of their late son who died in action. Initially offered a warm welcome, things quickly start to go wrong.Though David appears to be a charming, friendly fellow, a series of unexplained, apparently accidental deaths start happening, and he seems to be connected to all of them. Could this new arrival in fact be a harbinger of doom? Look, he used to appear on Downton Abbey, so of course people die around him…Crafted by Wingard and regular collaborator Simon Barrett, »

Dan Stevens is Not to be Trusted in First Trailer for Adam Wingard’s The Guest

26 June 2014 8:09 AM, PDT | Beyond Hollywood | See recent Beyond Hollywood news »

Former “Downton Abbey” star Dan Stevens is not to be trusted in “You’re Next” director Adam Wingard’s latest, the thriller “The Guest,” which gets a pretty intense looking trailer that you can take a gander at below, folks who enjoy taking a gandering. “You’re Next” was a great movie and I’m still holding out for a sequel to that one, though not one without Sharni Vinson’s character. I mean, a sequel without her would be kind of pointless, right? But let’s move on to “The Guest” and what he has plan for this poor family and their hot blonde daughter. I’m going to go out on a limb and guess “nothing good.” A soldier introduces himself to the Peterson family, claiming to be a friend of their son who died in action.

Watch: Dan Stevens is an Unwanted Visitor in ‘The Guest’

26 June 2014 7:42 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

As if to permanently put those “Matthew Crawley-esque” typecasting worries to bed, “Downton Abbey” alum Dan Stevens’ upcoming role has him starring as a something’s-not-quite-right surprise visitor in the Sundance standout “The Guest.”

Directed by “You’re Next’s” Adam Wingard, the film follows a family grieving over the loss of eldest son Caleb, who died in Iraq. Tensions escalate when Stevens’ David appears at their door, claiming to be a friend of Caleb’s from the war.

“Played in a key of macabre black comedy that’s deadpan save whenever all hell breaks loose, ‘The Guest’ is such nasty fun you might not realize until afterward that David’s real reasons for arriving are never quite clarified,” Variety’s Dennis Harvey wrote in his review from the film festival.

The film also stars Maika Monroe, Brendan Meyer, Sheila Kelley, Leland Orser and Lance Reddick.

Get some good, strong, sinister vibes from the trailer for The Guest, starring Maika Monroe, Brendan Meyer, Sheila Kelley, Leland Orser and Lance Reddick. This is the latest film from director Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett, the duo who brought us You're Next last year.

Picturehouse is handling the release this September. Check out the trailer here which has a nice little Easter Egg for you Halloween III: Season of the Witch fans out there.

Watch: 'Downton Abbey' Star Dan Stevens Is 'The Guest' In Trailer For Throwback Thriller

26 June 2014 6:46 AM, PDT | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

While Dan Stevens made the decision to leave the acclaimed "Downton Abbey" a while ago, it's taken a while his his switch to the big screen to pay off. "The Fifth Estate" was a flop, the indie "Summer In February" is best not talked about, but he's got some good things on the horizon. He has a prominent role in the upcoming Liam Neeson joint "A Walk Among The Tombstones," he's got a role in Tom McCarthy's "The Cobbler," and he already made waves at Sundance this year with "The Guest." And the first teaser trailer is here. Adam Wingard, the director of "You're Next," is behind this thriller about a man claiming to be the friend of deceased soldier, who enters the life of that man's family, only for bodies to start piling up. It's an effort we called "a damn good time" and "a fun ride" out of Sundance, »
