Julia Garner and Jessica Henwick Are Trapped in a Terrifying Situation in 'The Royal Hotel' Trailer

'The Royal Hotel,' which also stars Hugo Weaving, releases in theaters Oct. 6

Julia Garner and Jessica Henwick are teaming up for a creepy new thriller.

On Thursday, Neon released a trailer for its new thriller The Royal Hotel, which stars Garner, 29, and Henwick, 31, as a pair of Americans traveling through Australia who pick up jobs at a bar to earn more money.

The trailer meets the pair's characters Hanna and Liv as they apply for jobs and arrive at The Royal Hotel bar in a remote Australian town, owned by Billy (Hugo Weaving). Hanna and Liv initially resolve to work at the bar temporarily until they can make enough money to travel elsewhere, but they quickly grow uncomfortable with many of its patrons, who make sexually-charged comments to them.
