The ultimate game of truth and dare will commence next month when Henry Joost & Ariel Schulman’s high octane thriller Nerve is released in UK&Irish cinemas. From the previous clips we’ve been teased by the fun side of the game as our ‘players’ Vee (Emma Roberts) and Ian (Dave Franco) take each task in their stride. Today Lionsgate Films have sent us another new clip called ‘Blindfold‘ which shows the game has up the ante to a dangerous level. Ian must now ride his bike with his helmet visor covered with Vee directing him, will they survive?
You wonder if technology as it is today where ever invented or is still at level that today’s younger generation whom these gadgets are aimed at would interest them, would we see this type of ‘dares’ ever happening? A generation without gadgets is an scary notion as we expect these guys to have them. Parents would dream of that day so that families can interact traditionally and be human again. But we can guess there will be a few fathers who would be lost too!
Nerve follows industrious high school senior, Vee Delmonico (Emma Roberts), who 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. But as she finds herself caught up in the thrill of the adrenaline-fueled competition, 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.
Would you go the distance? Do you have the nerve? Are you a “Watcher” or a “Player”?
Nerve also stars Juliette Lewis, Emily Meade, Samira Wiley, Miles Heizer, Kimiko Glenn, and Machine Gun Kelly.Get ready to play or watch the film in UK&Ireland 11th August.
