Icon has released a new trailer and poster for The Guest. The film stars Dan Stevens (Downton Abbey) as a mysterious figure who comes to say with a small, Midwestern family under the auspices of being their dead son’s war buddy. However, his charming demeanor belies a far more dangerous, unpredictable personality. I really dug the film when I saw it at Sundance, and like the U.S. trailer, this U.K. version does a good job of selling the mystery, the action, and the comedy without giving away too much.
Hit the jump to check out The Guest trailer and poster. The film also stars Maika Monroe, Leland Orser, Sheila Kelley, Brendan Meyer, and Lance Reddick. The Guest opens in the U.K. on September 5th and in the U.S. on September 17th.
Here’s the official logline for The Guest:
A soldier (Dan Stevens) introduces himself to the Peterson family, claiming to be a friend of their son who died in action. After the young man is welcomed into their home, a series of accidental deaths seem to be connected to his presence.
