The remake of The Invisible Man lands in February – and here’s the first trailer.
Heading into cinemas in February of next year is Universal’s latest attempt to reboot one of its horror classics. This is notably also the first film of its ilk it’s launched since its ill-fated attempt to launch a Dark Universe of interconnected horror films.
The shared universe idea appears gone, but in its place – for now at least – is a new take on The Invisible Man.
Elisabeth Moss leads the cast of the film, joined by Harriet Dyer, Aldis Hodge and Storm Reid. Promisingly, Leigh Whannel has written and directed this one, coming off the back of his terrific movie, Upgrade.
Here’s the first trailer for the film, and its official synopsis too…
And here’s that synopsis….
What you can’t see can hurt you. Emmy winner Elisabeth Moss (Us, Hulu’s The Handmaid’s Tale) stars in a terrifying modern tale of obsession inspired by Universal’s classic monster character.
Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy and brilliant scientist, Cecilia Kass (Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding, aided by her sister (Harriet Dyer, NBC’s The InBetween), their childhood friend (Aldis Hodge, Straight Outta Compton) and his teenage daughter (Storm Reid, HBO’s Euphoria).
But when Cecilia’s abusive ex (Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House) commits suicide and leaves her a generous portion of his vast fortune, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia’s sanity begins to unravel as she desperately tries to prove that she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.
Not too long to wait for this one. It’s heading to UK cinemas on February 28th 2020. More on the movie as we hear it.
