In the upcoming thriller The Gift, Simon (Jason Bateman) and Robyn (Rebecca Hall) are a young married couple looking to finally settle down in their beautiful new home. But when an acquaintance from Simon’s past emerges to welcome the two, things quickly take a turn and their hope for a fresh start might be just forgotten as secrets and old wounds threaten to bubble to the surface. 

In the clip above, Simon and Robyn arrive home to an unexpected gift from Gordo (Joel Edgerton), who was referred to as “the weirdo” back in school, according to Simon. Robyn believes he’s just being sweet and while kids can be cruel, Simon thinks there just might have been something to that nickname after all.

The Gift arrives in theaters Aug. 7, but Bateman will be on hand today at 2:30 p.m. PT/5:30 p.m. ET to answer any and all burning film questions on EW’s Facebook available here
