A dark secret threatens a burgeoning marriage in the first trailer for the Netflix romantic thriller Rebecca.

A modern take on the 1938 Gothic novel of the same name by Daphne du Maurier, the film sees a passionate love affair quickly spiral into a dark mystery when young newlywed Mrs. de Winter (Lily James) arrives at the English coast family estate of her soon-to-be-husband, Maxim de Winter (Armie Hammer).

After connecting with the young, wealthy widower, Maxim, James' character soon finds herself caught up in a whirlwind romance. But upon setting foot in what will soon be her new home, the new Mrs. de Winter gets a chillier than expected welcome from Mrs. Danvers (Kristin Scott Thomas), the head housekeeper.

With the help of Mrs. Danvers' passive-aggressive welcome, the new Mrs. de Winter finds herself unexpectedly on the outside of her husband's life as she tries to find her place in the household and among a staff still somewhat attached to Maxim's dead wife. It's made all the worse by the fact that Maxim won't open up to her about his past.

"You can talk to me about her. I have no secrets from you," de Winter whispers to Maxim as they lie in bed, to which Maxim mysteriously responds, "All marriages have their secrets."

Mrs. de Winter is eventually told that an accident is behind Rebecca's death, but the more she seemingly learns about her husband's former love, the more out of control she begins to feel. After Mrs. Danvers teases that Rebecca is "still in the house," she viciously wonders to the new Mrs. de Winter's face, "what she's thinking about you, taking her husband, using her name."

Increasingly terrorized in both her dreams and waking life by Mrs. Danvers and shut out by her husband Maxim, Mrs. de Winter must face the haunting hold Rebecca still has on her new home before it's too late.

First adapted for the screen by Alfred Hitchcock in 1940, Netflix's rendition is written by Jane Goldman, Joe Shrapnel and Anna Waterhouse and directed by Ben Wheatley. Tom Goodman-Hill, Keeley Hawes, Sam Riley and Ann Dowd also star in the film, slated to hit Netflix on Oct. 21.
