Daniel Radcliffe stars in the spooky new trailer for The Woman in Black

08.17.2011

I wasn't all that familiar with THE WOMAN IN BLACK, Daniel Radcliffe's cinematic follow-up to the HARRY POTTER franchise, before watching this trailer. But after seeing this creepy as f*ck trailer, it's definitely on my radar for 2012.

It's your standard haunted house movie, here with Radcliffe playing the executor of an estate that may or may not be (but probably is) haunted, but the execution is top notch. It reminded me quite a bit of THE OTHERS, another haunted house style movie that I really enjoyed.

It'll be interesting to see if audiences can look past Radcliffe as Potter and accept him in other roles. He's been having success on Broadway but the stage is a different beast than the movies. At the very least, it looks like he's got himself a strong start. Check out the WOMAN IN BLACK trailer below!

Sorry, not impressed... The stage play is absolutely amazing, the book's pretty good, but this just looks like they're losing the underplayed, psychological style that made the thing great and throwing in schlock scares for the sake of it (none of that stuff with the kids, writing, well pretty much any of it is in the original). Don't see the point of Americanising it either, especially when Radcliffe is English, as is the source.

Looks good, I like that the trailer wasn't filled with a lot of noise with crazy jumpcuts...it's seemed more quieter whit to me is more creepy. I'll keep and eye on this film.

Awesome!! I watched the orginial movie recently and while it wasnt scary the story was engaging enough to make it a good flick. Glad to see this get a remake, looks quite good.

Looks great--it's nice to see something like this focusing on the fear factor instead of gimmicks, gore, etc. I have high hopes for Daniel Radcliffe. He's become a really good actor over the course of the Harry Potter series and some of his other work outside of that franchise (i.e. December Boys, My Boy Jack--especially the latter) showed he is capable of playing other kinds of characters. I hope his career flourishes.

Colour my ass intrigued...

I love a really good haunted house movie and this one seems very creepy and refreshingly original. Dan has already proven himself as an actor and definitely looks the part for this.

I've seen Radcliffe on Broadway and I was thrilled! If you have the chance to see the show, do it! It's very funny and entertaining.
Looking forward to see Radcliffe in other roles.
