Fair Play Trailer Featuring Phoebe Dynevor and Alden Ehrenreich

Netflix has revealed the official trailer and poster for new thriller Fair Play, opening in select theaters on September 29 before releasing globally on Netflix October 13.

Fair Play is rated R for pervasive language, sexual content, some nudity, and sexual violence.

The cast includes Phoebe Dynevor (Bridgerton), Alden Ehrenreich (Oppenheimer, Solo: A Star Wars Story) and Eddie Marsan (Happy-Go-Lucky).

The Sundance hit was written and directed by Chloe Domont. Fair Play is her feature film debut after making a name for herself directing shorts and television episodes of Billions, Suits, and Ballers.

In Fair Play, an unexpected promotion at a cutthroat hedge fund pushes a young couple’s relationship to the brink, threatening to unravel far more than their recent engagement.

Fair Play is the first film to come out of the deal that T-Street’s Rian Johnson and Ram Bergman made with MRC to hatch vehicles with emerging talent.

The producers include Leopold Hughes and Ben LeClair from T-Street; and Tim White, Trevor White, and Allan Mandelbaum from Star Thrower Entertainment. Johnson, Bergman, Domont, and Anđelka Vlaisavljević are executive producing.

“Why is it that even today, with all the progress that we’ve made, a man’s success is a win for the relationship, but when it’s the other way around, it feels like a threat? It felt like something that so many of us experience but are afraid to talk about and to confront,” Domont told Vanity Fair.

She added in an interview with Netflix’s Tudum: “It was a story that was burning inside of me and a story I couldn’t not tell. I wanted to reckon with some unresolved feelings I had in the past, specifically dating men who I felt were threatened by either my ambition or any little bits of accomplishments.”

The movie is Domont’s way of sounding the alarm. “These dynamics should no longer be normalized,” she said.

Fair Play is a departure for both Ehrenreich and Dynevor, best known for playing a young Han Solo in Solo: A Star Wars Story and Regency debutante Daphne Bridgerton in Bridgerton, respectively. But for Domont, that was part of their appeal.

“When I met with Alden and Phoebe for the roles, it was pretty instant that they were perfect for these characters,” Domont said. “They’re incredibly strong versatile actors that can do anything. And also what excited me about it was that they had never done anything like this before. I love to cast against type.”

Dynevor and Ehrenreich are joined by Eddie Marsan and Rich Sommer as two of their co-workers at the One Crest Capital hedge fund.

“Eddie is magic,” Domont said. “He’s got this electricity in his eyes. You never know what he’s going to do or what he’s going to say, and so his performances just keep you on the edge.”
