Watch: 'Downton Abbey' Star Dan Stevens Is 'The Guest' In Trailer For Throwback Thriller

While Dan Stevens made the decision to leave the acclaimed “Downton Abbey” a while ago, it’s taken a while his his switch to the big screen to pay off. “The Fifth Estate” was a flop, the indie “Summer In February” is best not talked about, but he’s got some good things on the horizon. He has a prominent role in the upcoming Liam Neeson joint “A Walk Among The Tombstones,” he’s got a role in Tom McCarthy‘s “The Cobbler,” and he already made waves at Sundance this year with “The Guest.” And the first teaser trailer is here.

Adam Wingard, the director of “You’re Next,” is behind this thriller about a man claiming to be the friend of deceased soldier, who enters the life of that man’s family, only for bodies to start piling up. It’s an effort we called “a damn good time” and “a fun ride” out of Sundance, so this’ll be one to put on your radar.

Co-starring Maika Monroe, Leland Orser, Sheila Kelley, Brendan Meyer and Lance Reddick, “The Guest” opens via Picturehouse in September. Watch below.
