Welcome back everyone,
Today we are checking out a new mystery/thriller starring Jason Bateman, Joel Edgerton, and Rebecca Hall. What make this film different than some of your other typical thriller films is of course the more high profile actors in the starring roles and also the fact that Joel Edgerton is making his directorial debut while also writing the script.
Joel Edgerton over the past few years has slowly been building a great resume as a lead actor, and he always seems to change his appearance just enough were his doesn't come off like most lead actors just playing themselves kind a sorta in every other role. Just look at some of his films Star Wars: Revenge of the Sith, Smokin Aces, Animal Kingdom, Warrior, Zero Dark Thirty, The Great Gatsby, Exodus: Gods and Kings, the guy is a chameleon always disappearing into his roles, can't wait to see how his first writing and directing effort comes across. Plus having Jason Bateman in a serious role is just an added bonus to the film!
A husband and wife try to reinvigorate their relationship but their lives are threatened by a "friend" from the husband's past who holds a horrifying secret about him, sending their world into a tailspin.
Check out the trailer below:
This film kind of snuck up under my radar, I really had heard nothing about this one and now after watching the first trailer I'm really surprised and excited about the possibility of this film being really creepy good fun, can't wait to check this one out.
Trailer Rating: 3/5 Stars
The Gift hits theaters on July 31st, 2015
