FIRST LOOK: Blood-soaked Megan Fox battles for her life in trailer for revenge thriller Til Death
Anticipation for Megan Fox’s new thriller Til Death continues to build after the official trailer was released this week ahead of its July 2 theatrical release.
The stunning 35-year-old actress — who has been making her Hollywood comeback — stars in the new horror flick as a woman in a stale marriage who finds herself battling for her life against two killers.
In the nearly two-minute trailer the Jennifer’s Body star is seen drenched in blood and handcuffed to her now-dead husband after an anniversary trip goes awry — prompting a massive fight for survival.

The R-rated revenge-thriller stars Irish hunk Eoin Macken (The Night Shift) who plays Megan’s husband Mark and the movie is directed by S.K. Dale (The Mule).
The film’s title is naturally a play on the traditional wedding vows of ’til death do us part.’
In an effort to reignite their stale marriage, Macken plans a romantic evening at the pair’s secluded lake house before things take a turn.
‘Things have been bad between us and I’m sorry. I know a surprise isn’t going to fix everything,’ Macken says as the trailer begins.

Terrified and isolated in the dead of winter, the widow has to figure out a way to escape before she realizes she is at the mercy of a sick and twisted game.
After discovering her wedding dress which has been hanging in the closet she comes to discover a tape recorder that says ‘play me,’ and her husband’s voice says ‘I’m impressed you’ve made it this far.’

She comes to realize she has been set up and the film teases that he has hired two killers who force entry into the house.
Seemingly motivated by greed and her husband’s personal vengeance, the killers are tipped off that the house has a safe with $200K in diamonds.
After fighting to evade the killers by hiding outside and throughout the house, Megan seems to make an escape to a vehicle before they drag her out and a bloody battle ensues.
In a June 29 interview with ET, Megan divulged a bit more about the film and revealed that her Mark’s revenge plot was motivated by Emma cheating.

Megan added that it ‘doesn’t ever work out well for anyone. [Or you] could end up chained to a dead person.’
And in speaking about the role she said: ‘It was just different than anything else I had read or seen. I haven’t done, like, a marriage drama before. I haven’t done, like, a grownup movie. I haven’t done a traditional thriller or horror movie before.’

In real life Megan was in a decade-long marriage with Brian Austin Green until they announced their split in May 2020. The pair share three children together.
Months before she had met now-boyfriend Machine Gun Kelly on the set of Midnight In The Switchgrass, who she later called her ‘twin flame,’ and the pair have not been shy about showing their undying love for each other.
She continued to speak out on what makes a relationship successful, harping on being ‘a good listener’ and ‘loving’ one’s partner ‘as they are.’
‘I think you have to be selfless, meaning you have to always prioritize loving the other person where they are, as they are, who they are in this moment. Not try to change people and not project your own insecurities on some other people. You have to be a good listener.’
