In the upcoming horror film “Don’t Breathe,” three teens Rocky (Jane Levy), Money (Daniel Zovatto), and Alex (Dylan Minnette) successfully rob affluent homes for cash and belongings. When they find out there’s a blind war veteran (Stephen Lang) who keeps a large legal settlement locked in house, they decide to case the joint for a big score. But they soon discover that he’s actually a strong, gun-wielding killer who knows his own house like the back of his hand. Now the three teens are the mercy of a man who uses his visual handicap as a weapon. Watch the trailer above.
