Lily Collins, Jesse Plemons, Jason Segel in Thriller 'Windfall' Trailer
"You owe a debt to a helluva lot more people than just me." Netflix has revealed the first official trailer for Windfall, a new "Hitchcockian thriller" following a wealthy couple who arrive at their vacation home only to find it's being robbed. This is the latest film by filmmaker Charlie McDowell, best known for his Sundance gems The One I Love and The Discovery. The concept for this one, created by co-star Jason Segel, wonders "what if" your safe space at home "gets invaded and doesn't feel safe anymore?" Starring Jason Segel, Lily Collins, Jesse Plemons, and that's it. "The story really exposes all three of us," Collins states. "We're all flawed, and the story showcases and starts to unearth how those flaws come about and that none of us are innocent. And I feel like it is about choice and the choices we make and the choices we don't make and how that does set you off on a very specific path." Oh this looks VERY good. I'm excited to see all that is revealed.
Here's the official trailer (+ poster) for Charlie McDowell's Windfall, direct from Netflix's YouTube:
Windfall is a taut psychological thriller that's a throwback to old noir-style filmmaking – following a tech billionaire (Jesse Plemons) and his wife (Lily Collins), who arrive at their idyllic vacation home only to find it's being robbed by a man (Jason Segel). Windfall is directed by American writer / filmmaker Charlie McDowell, director of the films The One I Love and The Discovery previously, plus some additional TV work. The screenplay is written by Justin Lader and Andrew Kevin Walker, based on a story by Jason Segel. This hasn't premiered at any film festivals or elsewhere, as far as we know. Netflix will release McDowell's Windfall streaming on Netflix worldwide starting March 18th, 2022 coming soon. Who wants to see this?
