"The Stepfather", a remake to the '80s thriller film of the same name, has got itself a brand new trailer. After previously being leaked online, the trailer is now officially released through MySpace. It shares a sneak peek on how Penn Badgley's Michael Harding starts to be suspicious of his future stepfather, David.
Coming home from military school, Michael finds his mother happily in love and living with her new boyfriend, David.
