Netflix Just Dropped The Trailer For 'Rebecca' And It's Creepy AF

Netflix Just Dropped The Trailer For 'Rebecca' And It's Creepy AF

The trailer for Netflix's adaptation of Rebecca has finally dropped - and it looks incredible.

Just last month we were treated to first-look promo pics for the new film, and we've now been given a video preview of the creepy thriller starring Armie Hammer and Lily James.

Take a look here:

The film, which is out next month, is an adaptation of the 1938 Gothic novel by Daphne Du Maurier and centres around a young newlywed who arrives at her husband's grand estate on the English coast.

Announcing the release, Netflix said: "After a whirlwind romance in Monte Carlo with handsome widower Maxim de Winter (Hammer), a newly married young woman (James) arrives at Manderley, her new husband's imposing family estate on a windswept English coast."

And the trailer is just as spine-tingling.

Netflix added: "Naive and inexperienced, [Rebecca] begins to settle into the trappings of her new life, but 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."

Told through flashbacks and from the viewpoint of the new Mrs. de Winter - whose name is never revealed - the original novel takes a creepy turn with head housekeeper Mrs. Danvers tormenting the young wife for taking her beloved Rebecca's place.

For example, the sinister housekeeper convinces Mrs. de Winter into wearing the same dress to a ball that Rebecca once wore, and later tries to encourage her to jump out of the window.

"She's still here, can you feel her?" Mrs. Danvers taunts. "I wonder what she's thinking about you, taking her husband, using her name."

The star-studded cast also includes Kristin Scott Thomas as Mrs Danvers, Tom Goodman-Hill as Frank Crawley and Keeley Hawes as Beatrice Lacy.

It's not the first time the 1938 novel - a bestseller that has never been out of print - has been adapted for the screen. In 1940, it was adapted for the big screen by Alfred Hitchcock, winning an Academy Award for Best Picture. A 1997 made for TV film starred Emilia Fox and Charles Dance, while the author herself produced a stage play of the novel in 1939.

The novel is best-known for its line: "Last night I dreamt I went to Manderley again," and we're already wondering how this will be added into this new adaptation.

Rebecca drops on Netflix on 21st October
