Watch the Trailer for Netflix’s ‘Rebecca’ Starring Lily James and Armie Hammer

Netflix has unveiled the trailer for Ben Wheatley’s reimagining of Daphne du Maurier’s 1938 Gothic classic Rebecca – the same one that earned Alfred Hitchcock a Best Picture award for his 1940 adaptation starring Laurence Olivier and Joan Fontaine. Check it out below.

The film follows a newly married young woman, Mrs. de Winter (Lily James), as she arrives at the imposing family estate of her new husband, portrayed by Armie Hammer. As the official synopsis reads, “naive and inexperienced, she begins to settle into the trappings of her new life, but she finds herself battling the shadow of Maxim’s first wife, the elegant and urbane Rebecca, whose haunting legacy is kept alive by Manderley’s sinister housekeeper Mrs. Danvers (Kristin Scott Thomas).”

Wheatley and Hammer previously worked together on the director’s 2016 comedy-action film Free Fire. The screenplay for Rebecca was co-written by The Woman in Black screenwriter Jane Goldman alongside Joe Shrapnel and Anna Waterhouse. Clint Mansell composed the score.

Rebecca will be available to stream on Netflix on October 21.
