Watch: Indie Action Thriller 'The Guest' Gets a Great Second Trailer
While Dan Stevens is better known for his role on "Downton Abbey," his turn in the indie action thriller The Guest from director Adam Wingard and writer Simon Barrett (You're Next). In the film Stevens plays an Iraq War veteran who shows up at the doorstep of his dead army colleague’s grieving family. It seems like he just wants to help at first, but then people start dying, and his integrity and real reason for being there comes into question. This looks like an awesome flick, and our own Alex Billington named it as one of his favorites from the festival earlier this year. It's one indie you'll want to make sure to catch. Watch!
Here's the latest trailer for Adam Wingard's The Guest, originally from Yahoo:
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?

I'd love to watch this but the Yahoo player is atrocious. It crashed 3 times on me and when it finally started to run, it crashed when I tried to adjust the volume. Nice!

I've tried watching the trailer, but the yahoo player has the same functionality as a bag of dead rhino dicks. And I can't find the vid anywhere else.
