That up above is a new still from Lionsgate’s You’re Next (read our review), which takes an ax to theaters on August 23. It comes from Badass Digest so head over there get a better look at it along with a statement from Adam Wingard! Also – the trailer is set to debut tonight on “Entertainment Tonight” on CBS at 7:00PM PT / 7:30PM ET. Knowing them, they might talk over it. Either way we’ll have a high-rez John Tesh-free version of the trailer up tomorrow morning at 10AM PST.
Directed by Adam Wingard and written by Simon Barrett, the duo best known for A Horrible Way to Die, V/H/S and the forthcoming V/H/S/2, “You’re Next is one of the smartest and most terrifying films in years, one that reinvents the genre by putting a fresh twist on home-invasion horror. When a gang of masked, ax-wielding murderers descend upon the Davison family reunion, the hapless victims seem trapped…until an unlikely guest of the family proves to be the most talented killer of all.”
Sharni Vinson (the upcoming Patrick remake), Nick Tucci (Choose, Undocumented), Wendy Glenn (11-11-11), AJ Bowen (A Horrible Way to Die, The House of the Devil, The Signal), Joe Swanberg (A Horrible Way to Die, V/H/S), Margaret Laney, Amy Seimetz (A Horrible Way to Die), Ti West (The Roost, The House of the Devil, The Innkeepers), Calvin Reeder (V/H/S, The Rambler), Larry Fessenden (Habit, The Last Winter), Kate Lyn Sheil (V/H/S), Barbara Crampton (80’s fav who starred in Re-Animator, From Beyond and Castle Freak) and Rob Moran all star.
