Ben Wheatley’s Rebecca Trailer Starring Armie Hammer and Lily James


Although Free Fire didn’t quite become the breakout film that many thought it would be, Ben Wheatley continues to be director that feels like he is on the verge of something bigger. He has been well-known in genre circles for a while now with films like Kill List, Sightseers and A Field in England, but he will apparently be directing the next Tomb Raider movie, which will be his first studio tentpole. In the meantime, his next film is an adaptation of Daphne Du Maurier’s novel Rebecca, which yes, was previously adapted by Alfred Hitchcock (don’t call it a remake though). Lily James plays the new wife of Maxim de Winter (Armie Hammer), who arrives on her husband’s estate only to find that his previous wife, Rebecca, still casts a long shadow over his life. Rebecca arrives on Netflix on Oct. 21st; check out the trailer below and let us know what you think.
