What’s that old saying? “You can’t go home again”? In the case of Kaitlyn Dever’s character Brynn Adams in the sci-fi thriller No One Will Save You, she’ll really wish she had stayed away.
As seen in the new trailer, Dever plays a creative but troubled young woman who moves back into her childhood home. But before she can get settled in, she is confronted by decidedly extraterrestrial invaders. Not only must she fight to survive, but the aliens force her to confront a past she’s not yet ready to deal with.
The film is written and directed by Brian Duffield, and he’s quietly becoming a filmmaker whose stuff I really look forward to. He wrote the excellent adventure rom-com Love & Monsters, as well as The Babysitter, the Kristen Stewart horror Underwater, and the Netflix MonsterVerse series Skull Island. He last directed the 2020 teen horror-comedy Spontaneous. Duffield is a pro at finding new ways to keep horror light and entertaining, although I have to say this looks a bit edgier.
Dever has been killing it ever since her breakout role in Short Term 12. She’s also starred in Booksmart, Rosaline, and Dear Evan Hansen.
Hulu will debut No One Will Save You exclusively on September 22nd.
Here’s the synopsis: “No One Will Save You” introduces Brynn Adams (Dever), a creative and talented young woman who’s been alienated from her community. Lonely but ever hopeful, Brynn finds solace within the walls of the home where she grew up—until she’s awakened one night by strange noises from decidedly unearthly intruders. What follows is an action-packed face-off between Brynn and a host of extraterrestrial beings who threaten her future while forcing her to deal with her past. Written and directed by Brian Duffield, the film features music by composer Joseph Trapanese. Tim White, Trevor White, Allan Mandelbaum and Duffield produce, and Dever and Joshua Throne executive produce.”
