We've been keeping a close eye on the Charlize Theron-starring DARK PLACES for a while now, and today we're happy to show you fine folks the film's first ever still—featuring none other Theron herself. Guess what? Theron looks pretty damn good in a trucker hat! The film boasts an impressive cast from the ground up as it sees Nicholas Hoult, Chloë Grace Moretz, Emmy Award nominated actress Christina Hendricks and Drea de Matteo all star. For those of you out of the loop on this one, DARK PLACES is a film adaptation of Gillian Flynn’s best-selling novel of the same name and was written and directed by Gilles Paquet-Brenner (SARAH’S KEY). Here's what it's about:
DARK PLACES tells the story of Libby Day (Theron), a woman who, at the age of 7, survives the massacre of her family and testifies against her brother as the murderer. Twenty-five years later, a group obsessed with solving notorious crimes confronts her with questions about the horrific event. Told in a series of flashbacks from the points of view of Libby’s mother, Patty, and her brother, Ben, Libby is forced to revisit that fateful day and begins to question what exactly she saw – or didn’t see – the night of the tragedy.
