THE GUEST Trailer Starts Polite, And Then Gets Bloody Rude
Heading to U.S. theaters on September 17, The Guest stars Dan Stevens as a war veteran who visits the family of a fallen colleague. He is kind, considerate, and helpful to the single mother and her two teenage children, right up until one of them gets into trouble, and then the hidden aspects of his personality come to the fore, as in, "Yowza!"
Stevens convincingly portrayed an upstart addition to the posh Downtown Abbey clan who became a beloved, integral member of the family before Something Happened And He Left The Show. He looks utterly convincing here.
When the film debuted at Sundance earlier this year, our own Ryland Aldrich wrote in part: "The real triumph here is what we've come to expect from Wingard and Barrett: undeniable enjoyment." Based on this trailer, I'm ready to see the film right now.
