Tye Sheridan, Emory Cohen and Bel Powley Star In 3 New DETOUR Clips

Three rising stars, three new clips from the upcoming thriller.






Tye Sheridan, Emory Cohen and Bel Powley are three of the most interesting young stars working today, and they join forces for writer-director Christopher Smith's road thriller Detour. Smith made his name in the UK with cult horror movies Severance, Triangle and Creep, and now makes his US debut with a thriller that appears to take advantage of that country's expansive highways. Detour opens in US cinemas and on iTunes January 20th, but no news of a UK/ROI release yet.


The official synopsis reads:

Harper (Tye Sheridan), a seemingly naive law student, obsesses over the idea that his shifty stepfather was involved in the devastating car crash that left his mother hospitalized and comatose. He drowns his suspicions in whiskey until he finds himself suddenly engrossed in conversation with volatile grifter Johnny (Emory Cohen) and his stripper companion, Cherry (Bel Powley). As daylight breaks and the haziness of promises made becomes clearer, how will Harper handle the repercussions (not to mention the violent duo — on his doorstep)? Employing a split-narrative structure to tell this tale of deception and murder, Christopher Smith takes his audience on a thrill ride full of hairpin turns, where it’s never quite clear what or who can be trusted.
