Before entering into a new union, you must always ensure that your spouse does not have some dead exes whose souls are visiting the home you are supposed to reside in together. That is the hyper-specific cautionary tale of Netflix’s Rebecca, that formally has a profoundly unsettling trailer before its Oct. 21 Netflix premiere.
Rebecca, a brand new variant of Daphne du Maurier’s 1938 book (that was famously adapted to some 1940 film by Alfred Hitchcock), celebrities Lily James stars as a girl who produces the exact relatable movement of falling in love with Armie Hammer. Following a whirlwind, beachy courtship at Monte Carlo, she chased him and proceeds to reside in his eponymous property, where he lived together with his now-deceased spouse, the titular Rebecca. Her heritage is kept alive from the black housekeeper, Mrs. Danvers (Kristin Scott Thomas), that immediately makes it very clear that she is not overly pleased to observe a new girl round the house. Provided that since the trailer reveals usit will become clear that there is definitely something unnatural afoot.
Mixing James, Hammer, along with Thomas in the casting are all Ann Dowd, Keeley Hawes, Sam Riley, Tom Goodman-Hill, Mark Lewis Jones, John Hollingworth, along with Bill Paterson. The film has been directed by Ben Wheatley and created by Eric Fellner, Tim Bevan, along with Nira Park.
Rebecca premieres on Netflix on Wednesday, Oct. 21.
