The thriller film starring Dan Stevens, Alison Brie, Sheila Vand, and Jeremy Allen White will hit select theaters drive-ins and VOD services on July 24th. The four are celebrating a new business venture in a rental house for the weekend. Things go south when secrets they have kept from each other surface, and they realize they may not be alone. The moody and stylistic trailer for The Rental can be seen below, along with the film's synopsis and poster.
The Rental Synopsis and Poster
"Two couples looking to celebrate their seed money from a new business venture, embark on a weekend getaway to a seemingly perfect house they've booked online. But what begins as a festive weekend for the four close friends turns into something far more sinister as secrets they've kept from each other are exposed, and paranoia grows that they may not be alone. Co-written by Dave Franco and Joe Swanberg, THE RENTAL features an all-star cast including Dan Stevens, Alison Brie, Sheila Vand, and Jeremy Allen The film also marks the directorial debut of Dave Franco. IFC Films will release THE RENTAL in select theaters, drive-ins, and on-demand July 24th."
I have to say, I am enjoying this big resurgence drive-ins are having right now. Even after theaters reopen, hopefully, this means the drive-in will not only keep open but thrive, as it has always been a fun way to experience a film, especially one like The Rental. Something about watching this outdoors just feels right. This one looks like it could be a pretty great debut for Franco as well. We can all find out together on July 24th.
