The first trailer for Universal Pictures and Blumhouse’s upcoming The Invisible Man remake has arrived, teasing legitimate terrors.
While Universal has really struggled to get their “Dark Universe” off the ground, leveraging their stable of horror monster icons, they’re still dedicated to bring these stories to a new generation. Foregoing the cinematic universe setup, The Invisible Man looks to tell it’s own story, and this trailer makes it look pretty great:
Yeah, I’m digging this. Between the drama, acting, and thrills, there’s a lot to like about this trailer. While it seems like it gives a LOT of the movie away, the film’s director has clarified on Twitter that this is still just a taste….Interesting.
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.
The Invisible Man hits theaters on February 28, 2020.
