As UK cinemas gradually begin to reopen, more films keep being added to the release schedule including new social media satire Spree. It stars Stranger Things’ Joe Keery as a rideshare driver who'll stop at nothing to go viral, and it had its world premiere at this year’s Sundance Film Festival where it was met with warm reviews.

Vertigo Releasing has announced it is releasing the thriller nationwide on 14 August, and a new trailer has landed to celebrate the launch.

Watch the new trailer below.

“23-year-old Kurt Kunkle plans to livestream a rampage, as a shortcut to infamy,” explains the synopsis.

“Coining his evil scheme "#thelesson" he installs a set of cameras in his car and begins streaming his rides. Kurt picks up passengers, only to dispense with them for the pleasure of his viewers... oh wait, he doesn't have any!

“Wildly miscalculating the presumed popularity that would come from his lethal scheme, Kurt desperately ups the stakes and tries to make sure his horrific non-event transforms into a viral sensation. In the middle of all this madness, Jessie Adams, a stand-up comedian with her own viral agenda, crosses Kurt's path and becomes our only hope to put a stop to his misguided carnage.

Spree comes to UK cinemas on 14 August.
