'The Guest': Check out the poster for Dan Stevens' movie
The next film from the makers of last year’s home invasion horror-comedy You’re Next? That would be action-thriller The Guest, which stars Dan Stevens from Downton Abbey. “It’s about this family who is grieving over the loss of their brother and son in a military conflict,” says You’re Next director Adam Wingard, who made The Guest in cahoots with his regular screenwriter Simon Barrett. “One day this guy shows up and claims to have been friends with him. He ends up integrating himself into the family and then we slowly learn more and more about this guy and who he really is. It’s got a sense of humor similar to You’re Next but then it takes an action-twist.”
The Guest will premiere at his year’s Sundance Film Festival and you can exclusively check out the movie’s festival poster above. “The movie has a very ‘80s, retro quality, not too dissimilar from something like Drive — and we wanted to do something that got that across ,” says Wingard of the poster, which was designed by the company Blood & Chocolate.
