How far would you go if you were dared by an online game, in the hopes of scoring some hard cash or video glory? That's the question facing Emma Roberts in Nerve, which just launched its UK trailer.

Nerve finds Roberts as high schooler Vee Delmonico, who is worried that she's missing out on life's wilder side by being a good student. So when her friends pressure her into joining a new, popular online game called Nerve, she agrees and signs up for one seemingly harmless dare, which ends with her meeting Ian (Dave Franco). Soon, though, they're caught up in a spiraling world of danger and double-crosses, as the dares become ever more complicated and the stakes get higher... Will they both survive the night?

With Catfish duo Henry Joost and Ariel Schulman behind the camera, Nerve is based on Jeanne Ryan's book and was adapted by Jessica Sharzer. Samira Wiley, Miles Heizer, Juliette Lewis and rapper Machine Gun Kelly (real name: Richard Colson Baker) are part of the cast, and the movie will be out on August 12.
