"The Rental" trailer pits Alison Brie with murderous host

The first trailer for Dave Franco’s directorial debut, “The Rental”, has just dropped. It comes from IFC Films, which picked up the title earlier this year for a July 2020 release.

The film stars Alison Brie and Dan Stevens as a young couple out on vacation with friends, played by Sheila Vand and Jeremy Allen White. Unbeknownst to them, there are cameras hidden in the beautiful rental house they’re BnB-ing in, and their host is keen to murder.

The Rental is a character-driven horror thriller about two couples who rent a vacation home for what should be a celebratory weekend get-away.

Franco has partnered up with Joe Swanberg – a filmmaker who’s at least been in close proximity with the genre, be that appearing in home invasion thrillers (“You’re Next”) or penning particularly erotic ones (“24 Exposures”) – as co-writer and producer.

You can watch the full trailer for “The Rental” below. It opens in theaters and on-demand on July 24, 2020.
