Trailer Tuesday: Dan Stevens Two-Fer

Trailer Tuesday is back with a duo of films coming out in the next few weeks starring none other than Dan Stevens. You may remember him from Downton Abbey, as the adorable heir to the Crawley estate. But Stevens has struck out into Hollywood with roles in The Fifth Estate, Summer in February, and an upcoming role as Lancelot in the third in the Night at the Museum franchise. Stevens is suddenly almost as many places as Benedict Cumberbatch and I'm okay with that.

In the nearly two years since leaving the popular Masterpiece drama, Stevens has gone through quite a bit of changes in his overall look. Even from Season 1 to 2 of Downton he'd lost weight as he was quoted in saying that his brother called him chubby. But after his time at the Abbey was over, Stevens had a complete makeover. He cut and dyed his hair and trimmed down considerably. No matter, I'm a fan of him with whatever look he chooses. I could go on about him all day, those eyes, that voice, but I'm here to talk about trailers, daggone it.

Dan Stevens plays a man who hires Neeson's character to track down the men responsible for his wife's kidnapping and ultimate murder. I mean, let's be honest, Neeson has a knack for this. Stevens is sporting a very thick New York accent and I think this the first time I've seen him act without his typical British.

Which leads me to the second trailer featuring the blue-eyed British darling.

In The Guest, Stevens plays a soldier who comes to the Peterson family claiming to have been friends and served with their son prior to the son's death. A series of accidental deaths seems to be connected to his presence and there's more to him than can be seen at face value. Violence, sex, unexplained gunmen, this trailer seems to pick out the most exciting and confusing parts of the movie. Why is David there? Why is he staying with Caleb's family?

He's mysterious in both and chilling in The Guest and I cannot wait to see both of them. Of the two, though, I'm much more excited to see the latter. Something about the way he moves in it is just bizarre and creepy to me. And it's by the people who made You're Next, so that makes a lot of sense.

We have so much Dan Stevens to look forward to. He'll be in Night at the Museum: Secret of the Tomb at Christmas time and he's also apparently in an Adam Sandler movie. So, that's something.
IMDB has A Walk Among the Tombstones releasing on September 19 with The Guest hitting theaters on September 17. Sometimes the dates on IMDB are off a bit, but I'll be watching for this to hit theaters. It's been making its film festival rounds, just having been screened at Toronto International Film Festival (TIFF).

Which of these movies are you looking forward to? Share in the comments!
