Jason Bateman and Rebecca Hall fall victim to an
increasingly disturbing series of chance encounters in the new trailer for
Joel Edgerton’s horror thriller, “The Gift.” The actor’s directorial debut features Bateman and Hall as a young married
couple whose lives spiral into chaos when Bateman’s character, Simon, runs into
an old high school acquaintance, Gordo (Edgerton).

Tensions rise when Gordo continues to appear around Simon
and Robyn (Hall), presenting them with mysterious gifts that hint to an
unsettling secret from Simon and Gordo’s past. As Robyn tries to uncover the
truth behind her husband’s relationship, Gordo taunts his old classmate that
the past isn’t quite done with him yet.

“The Gift” hits theaters August 7. Check out the
trailer above.
