Teaser Trailer for The Woman in Black Starring Daniel Radcliffe in Post-Harry Potter Role
04.11.11 by Ryan
Daniel Radcliffe's first post-Harry Potter movie still has the actor dealing with the supernatural, only, this time, the spirit isn't benevolent.
The teaser trailer for The Woman in Black has arrived online, offering the first footage of Radcliffe as Arthur Kipps, a young lawyer who travels to a remote village where he encounters the spectre known as the Woman in Black. Little of the movie's story is revealed in the trailer, which instead concentrates on the movie's grim setting and mood. As shadows creepily move behind Radcliffe, the trailer promises "the most chilling ghost story of our time comes to life."
Based on the 1983 novel by Susan Hill, The Woman in Black was written by Jane Goldman (Kick-Ass, X-Men: First Class) and directed by James Watkins (Eden Lake). The thriller is due in U.K. theaters on Feb. 10, 2012, as announced at the Kapow! Comic Con over the weekend.
As for when The Woman in Black might reach the U.S., the movie's production company, the legendary Hammer Films, took to its Twitter to let fans know that no date exists yet.
To those asking, there's no US release date confirmed as yet. We'll let you know soon as we do!
