Watch: New Trailer for Thriller 'Knock Knock' Starring Keanu Reeves
"You've been a very bad boy, Evan!" Voltage Pictures has debuted a full-length trailer for Eli Roth's latest film Knock Knock, a wacky home invasion thriller starring Keanu Reeves. He plays the victim, though, and the invaders this time are two feisty, nasty girls - played by Lorenza Izzo and Ana de Armas. This first premiered at Sundance this January in the Midnight category, but didn't up with any crazy buzz (nor did we have the chance to see it there). The setup is fairly interesting, but it almost turns into Funny Games half way through and doesn't seem to go anywhere else. But I'll watch pretty much anything Keanu stars in.
Knock Knock is directed by Eli Roth (Hostel) from a script he co-wrote with Nicolas Lopez and Guillermo Amoedo. Evan Webber (Keanu Reeves) is living the dream. Just look at his beautiful, successful wife, his two wonderful kids, and his truly stunning house—which he designed himself. Things are going so well, Evan doesn't even mind spending Father's Day alone while the rest of his family heads out for a beach weekend. And then there’s a knock on the door, with two young women (Lorenza Izzo and Ana de Armas) standing on his doorstep. Knock Knock first premiered at the 2015 Sundance Film Festival in the Park City at Midnight category, and will be released by Lionsgate. The thriller film hits theaters sometime this year.

I will watch it but just cause I love Reeves. Can't wait for the next John Wick. Wasn't he looking into a Cowboy Bebop movie a while back?

Lorenza's crazy laugh is the highlight of this trailer followed closely by "Chocolate, with Sprinkles!" Looks kinda fun. Although from the few line readings they show, Keanu seems very forced and fake as usual, which might be bad unless it's one of those 'bad on purpose' deals.

Everybody who refuges a threesome with two beautiful girls has regrets afterworths. So it looks logical what's happening 🙂

Hey David, I've been meaning to ask you. Forgive me if I get this wrong as you've only said it once...you're in South Korea right? All these movies made in America you see in theaters there...are they in English with Korean subtitles or is all the dialogue voiced over in Korean?
JBroti on May 23, 2015
Not at all, if you have any questions about Korea in general field them my way! But yeah, unfortunately, they all have subtitles. And yeah they are freaking annoying. The good thing is we get a lot of films early. The exception are animations, which must be dubbed first. When they are eventually released they will usually be in both subbed and dubbed formats.
DAVIDPD on May 23, 2015
So they're in Korean subtitles, right? Well you're English is spot on, I've always been impressed. Have you always lived in SK or have been here stateside too?
JBroti on May 24, 2015
Yeah, they are Korean language subtitles. I hate them. But dude...I guess you couldn't really have known, but I am American. Like 100% American. I am working here for a few years. I have been on FirstShowing since almost the beginning of site.
DAVIDPD on May 25, 2015
Yea I didn't know you were just living there and not actually from there. For as long as I've been a follower of FS.net, I've known you to be too. But I wasn't here since the beginning, though it's been about 5 years or so, but now it's good to know. Makes things much clearer now.
