A new trailer has been released for Joel Edgerton’s psycho killer thriller, The Gift, and in it we go through an opening montage of people killed decades after school kids bullied them, or teachers gave them poor grades.
It’s a chilling message, and is very effective to build up the trailer, so check it out below.
The Gift is written and directed by Joel Edgerton, who also stars alongside Rebecca Hall and Jason Bateman. The film will stalk UK cinemas from 7th August.
Can you really go through life having never wronged anyone? Even if you are unaware of how, or when, and even who you may have wronged, chances are there is someone out there who won’t ever forget it… or you.
Simon (Jason Bateman) and Robyn (Rebecca Hall) are a young married couple whose life is going just as planned until a chance encounter with an acquaintance from Simon’s high school sends their world into a harrowing tailspin. Simon doesn’t recognize Gordo (Joel Edgerton) at first, but after a seemingly coincidental series of encounters proves troubling, a horrifying secret from their past is uncovered after nearly 20 years. As Robyn learns the unsettling truth about what happened between Simon and Gordo, she starts to question: How well do we really know the people closest to us, and are past bygones ever really bygones?
