The concept of being trapped inside isn’t new these days, and the premise of Netflix’s upcoming psychological thriller Windfall – with a twist – is no exception. The streaming service released the trailer for the film today, which stars Jason Segel, Lily Collins and Jesse Plemons in lonely drama about a terrible flight.

Collins maintains her long-term commitment to Netflix, starring in the hit series Emily in Paris opposite her partner Kirsten Dunst, while Plemons maintains her connection to Netflix, having recently earned an Oscar nomination for her appearance in Netflix’s hit movie The Power of the Dog.
A gripping thriller that builds suspense all in one place. No one can be trusted in this Hitchcockian thriller on Netflix, Windfall, which always drags us into darker suspense.

Bargain plot: comedy turns into thriller
Have you ever thought about what you would do if you were taken hostage in your vacation home by a strange criminal? That’s exactly what lovers will face in this suspenseful thriller. Plemons and Collins, who play a wealthy couple on vacation, are at the heart of the plot. They soon find themselves robbed by an unskilled thief.

This experience is for him like a thief’s lesson, where he goes from amateur to I don’t know what. Also, what appears to be a friendly crime turns quickly as Plemons loses his temper and gets angry. As the nights roll in, things start to take a spooky turn inside what was once a jolly vacation home.
