Lionsgate released the Nerve trailer this week, a film that stars Emma Roberts and Dave Franco. The thriller is set to release this summer, expanding Roberts’ stranglehold on the genre as she preps for the new season of “Scream Queens” on FOX.
Joining Roberts and Franco in the film are Emily Meade, Miles Heizer, Juliette Lewis and Kimiko Glenn. In the film high school senior, Vee Delmonico [Emma Roberts], has had it with living life on the sidelines. When pressured by friends to join the popular online game Nerve, Vee decides to sign up for just one dare in what seems like harmless fun.
Soon she finds herself caught up in the thrill of the adrenaline-fueled competition partnered with a mysterious stranger [Dave Franco], the game begins to take a sinister turn with increasingly dangerous acts, leading her into a high stakes finale that will determine her entire future.
The studio teases the film asking if you are a “Watcher or a Player,” with the film sporting the official hashtag #WatcherOrPlayer on social-media. Fans of the genre can catch Nerve when it releases in theaters on July 27, 2016.
