"The Guest"
While Dan Stevens made the decision to leave the acclaimed "Downton Abbey" a while ago, it's taken a while for his transition to the big screen to pay off dividends. "The Fifth Estate" was a flop, the indie "Summer In February" is best not talked about, but he's got some good things on the horizon. He has a prominent role in the upcoming Liam Neeson joint "A Walk Among The Tombstones," he's got a role in Tom McCarthy's "The Cobbler" and he's already made waves at Sundance this year with "The Guest." And the first teaser trailer is here.

"The Guest"
We open on a man jogging, glimpsing him only from behind. Though we can’t see his face, we can see he jogs with purpose. Then, a title card slams down over a blaring synth with '70s “The Exorcist”-style lettering, and moments later we fade in on a field with a scarecrow wearing a gigantic pumpkin head grin. In the space of about 60 seconds, “You’re Next” filmmakers Adam Wingard and Simon Barrett have already announced their mission statement: a mysterious stranger, an unstoppable force and a Halloween setting signal to the audience (pretty much anyone who grew up in the VHS era), you are about to have a damn good time. A concept hatched after an accidental double-feature of “The Terminator” and “Halloween,” “The Guest” is the perfect synthesis of Cameron, Carpenter and Cannon [Films] and one of the most fun films at this year’s Sundance Film Festival.
