This weekend, horror fans will finally get to see Eli Roth's first directorial outing in seven years, The Green Inferno. Thankfully, those same fans won't have to wait another seven years for his next movie, with his new thriller Knock, Knock opening just two weeks later on October 9. To get fans ready for Knock, Knock, Lionsgate has released a new 60-second trailer, featuring Keanu Reeves as a man whose life is turned upside down, just by answering the door.
When a devoted husband and father is left home alone for the weekend, two stranded young women unexpectedly knock on his door for help. What starts out as a kind gesture results in a dangerous seduction and a deadly game of cat and mouse. A sexy new thriller from director Eli Roth and written for the screen by Eli Roth & José Nicolás Lopez García & Guillermo Amoedo, Knock, Knock stars Keanu Reeves as the family man who falls into temptation and Lorenza Izzo and Ana de Armas as the seductresses who wreak havoc upon his life, turning a married man's dark fantasy into his worst nightmare.
Ignacia Allamand, Aaron Burns and Colleen Camp co-star in Knock, Knock, which Lionsgate Premiere will release in theaters and On Demand platforms on October 9th. This is the third project Eli Roth has collaborated with Nicolás López and Guillermo Amoedo on, following Aftershock and The Green Inferno. We reported this summer that Eli Roth will be taking on the shark thriller Meg.
Knock, Knock will open in theaters against Warner Bros.' Pan and The Walk, which expands nationwide on October 9, but we don't have an official theater count for Knock, Knock yet. Sony's highly-anticipated biopic on Apple co-founder Steve Jobs debuts on October 9 as well, but only in New York and Los Angeles theaters, before expanding nationwide October 23. Victoria and Big Stone Gap also opening in limited release. We'll have to wait and see how Knock, Knock fares at the box office with all of this high-profile competition.
Keanu Reeves most recently starred in the modern action classic John Wick, with the actor reprising his title role for the sequel John Wick 2. He recently wrapped production on The Neon Demon, and he also has other projects such as The Bad Batch, The Panopticon and the long-awaited Bill & Ted 3. While we wait for more details on those upcoming projects, check out the new trailer for Knock, Knock.
