Sebastian Stan gets hungry!

In a world that centers itself around social media, one of the strangest things someone can choose to do is avoid it altogether. That bad juju is instantly doubled if you are trying to find love – or something else – on online dating sites like Tinder or Bumble. If you find yourself vibing with your match and plan to head out on a coffee date together, an obvious follow up question (after Googling them, of course) is what their Instagram handle is. However, a worldwide rule is that if your prospective date is lacking a social media presence, they are one big no-no. But, what happens if you meet someone out in the wild, hit it off, and later find out that they don’t have an online following? Do you keep seeing them or do you call it quits after deeming it creepy? That’s precisely what we see unfold in the trailer for Hulu’s upcoming film, Fresh. Starring Sebastian Stan and Daisy Edgar-Jones, the feature promises to keep audiences on the edge of their seats.
The trailer for the Searchlight Pictures film opens on Daisy Edgar-Jones’ character, Noa, in the middle of a terrible date. While her suitor tells her that she should go for a more feminine look, Noa rolls her eyes and asks for the check, hoping to get out of the restaurant as soon as possible. Next, we cut to Noa’s weekly grocery shopping trip, where she runs into Sebastian Stan’s Steve. After hitting on Noa with a bad pickup line, Steve recovers and we see the two sitting and chatting together with Steve asking Noa to tell him something she doesn’t want him to know about her. Although Noa’s best friend, played by Jonica T. Gibbs, implores Noa to stay single and shares her worries surrounding Steve’s lack of a social media presence, the smitten woman decides to take a chance and accompanies Steve on a trip to a cabin in the middle of nowhere. Talk about a red flag. Things (of course!) take an even weirder turn and soon we are on a non-stop thrill ride as Steve attempts to consume Noa in more ways than just on the mental and emotional planes.
Following its premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival, Fresh was met with overly positive reviews. Many critics said that the film’s themes play well into the gender politics of modern day dating. Promising that there’s more to it than your typical romance thriller, the movie is sure to deliver quite a bite. Under the direction of Mimi Cave (Vessel), Sebastian Stan and Daisy Edgar-Jones will draw you in during the trailer as we see clips of their sick and twisted cat and mouse game unfold.
After the extreme creep vibes the typically charming Sebastian Stan is giving us during the sneak peek, we are going to be sure to triple vet our next date. While women always know to be careful when going out with a new partner, Fresh definitely looks to reiterate that sentiment ten fold. Check out the trailer for the new horror film above, and tune into Hulu on March 4th for the feature’s premiere.
