Alternate Trailer for 'The Guest' Should Convince You to See It Now
Today, Adam Wingard & Simon Barrett's latest thriller The Guest hits limited theaters, and if it's playing nearby, you need to make sure to see it. But if for some reason you're not convinced yet, Hobo with a Shotgun director Jason Eisener was commissioned to cut an alternate trailer that shows off how slick, fun and bad ass this indie thriller really is. Dan Stevens is likely going to be a big star, even if this movie doesn't do the trick, and you can see how charming, dashing and fantastic he is just in this brief trailer. Seriously, it's a slow time at movie theaters right now, so take a chance, and go see The Guest now. Watch!
Here's the alternate trailer for Adam Wingard's The Guest, direct from Jason Eisener's YouTube:
Synopsis from Sundance: A soldier on leave befriends the family of a fallen comrade. He soon becomes a threat to everyone around him when it's revealed he's not who he says he is. Another version floating around before explains it slightly different: "The story follows an ex-Marine who returns a changed man from a tour of duty and becomes a houseguest to a military family whose eldest son recently died." The cast includes Dan Stevens, Maika Monroe, Leland Orser, Lance Reddick, Chase Williamson and Brendan Meyer. Directed by Adam Wingard, written by Simon Barret (the duo behind A Horrible Way to Die, You're Next, V/H/S 1&2). The Guest premiered at Sundance, and hits select theaters September 17th this fall. Good?

Wingard hasn't let me down yet. I'm definitely in. It's also nice to see Lt. Daniels back in action. S'been a while.

Looks cool, I just really don't like the 80's stuff, with the music and the titles. I didn't like You're Next when it got heavy into the 80's imitation. I feel it's trying to be like something instead of standing on it's own, and because of that I'm hesitant to see this.

I saw this at TIFF and it was a complete riot. Going to see it again this weekend.

Eisener definitely has a style he's sticking to; kinda 80's grindhouse-ish...i dunno. Looks more refined than Hobbo with a handycam, which is good

Haven't like any of Wingard's previous efforts but this looks like a change of pace for him. I'll give it a maybe.

I had no idea this even existed, I watched this trailer first then the original. This definitely adds more "UMPH" to it. I'll watch it. I'm a little ashamed I didn't know about it sooner.

Two grenades, pins popped, and a cheesy grin, I'm in!

He's intense......should of been picked as Kyle Reese.

so he's a killer...what's the point? Let me guess the REAL son comes home to save everyone at the end.

at the Q/A the director said he came up with the idea after watching terminator and halloween back to back. if that gives you an idea of how awesome this film is.

at the moment, I'm all in the mood for movies like this. It's just a phase, so I'll definitely indulge myself in with this...
