There's more than one titanic struggle taking place this Super Bowl weekend besides the matchup between the Giants and the Patriots: Fox's Chronicle and CBS Films' The Woman in Black are locked in a tight battle for first place at the box office, with Chronicle taking the early lead. To help sway moviegoers to ditch first-time feature director Josh Trank's "found footage" movie about teens with super powers and give the win to director James Watkins' (Eden Lake) movie about a haunted village, CBS Films has released the opening scene of The Woman in Black, which includes an introduction by the star of the movie, Daniel Radcliffe of Harry Potter fame.
The Woman in Black was written by Kick-Ass and X-Men: First Class screenwriter Jane Goldman and is based on Susan Hill's novel of the same name. Here's the synopsis:
Arthur Kipps (Radcliffe) is widowed lawyer whose grief has endangered his career. When he is sent to a remote village to sort out the affairs of recently deceased eccentric, it soon becomes clear that everyone in the town is keeping a terrible secret. Although the locals try to hide the town's tragic history from Kipps, he soon learns that his client's house is haunted by the ghost of a woman who is looking for someone and something she had lost, and until she does, no one is safe from her vengeance.
