Windfall features a man (Segel) who breaks into a wealthy couple's vacation home (Plemons and Collins), only for them to turn up while he is still there, prompting a split-second choice to hold the pair hostage in order to extract more money.
Plemons' character shines through, as do underlying tensions with his wife, and the teaser teases a common history between Plemons and Segel's characters, with the trailer eventually rising to violence before cutting away.
‘Windfall’ Production Details
Windfall is directed by Charlie McDowell, who previously collaborated with Segel and Plemons on The Discovery, and features a screenplay by Justin Lader and Andrew Kevin Walker based on a story by McDowell and Segel, the latter of whom will star in HBO Max's Winning Time: The Rise of the Lakers Dynasty and Apple TV+'s The Sky is Everywhere.
Collins maintains her long-term relationship with Netflix, starring alongside partner Kirsten Dunst in the hit series Emily in Paris, and Plemons maintains his relationship with the streaming service, having recently received an Academy Award nomination for his role in Netflix's hit film The Power of the Dog.
‘Windfall’ is produced by Alex Orlovsky, Duncan Montgomery, McDowell, Segel, Collins, Plemons, and Jack Selby, with executive producers David Duque Estrada, Elika Portnoy, Rick Covert, Walker, and Lader.
