Don't be Afraid of the Dark teaser trailer offers us a lot of...well, darkness

Today we get the first teaser trailer for the remake of DON'T BE AFRAID OF THE DARK starring Katie Holmes and Guy Pearce. If you're wondering when you last saw Holmes in a movie, it was co-starring with Queen Latifah and Diane Keaton in MAD MONEY in 2008, and BATMAN BEGINS before that (2005). I wonder what she's been doing with herself of late...sigh. The trailer didn't do much for me, in fact, if Guillermo del Toro's name wasn't associated to it, I'd likely write it off as yet another run-of-the-mill horror flick that studios have been pumping out over the past few years. But his name IS on it, and so is an R-rating, so I'll reserve full judgment until we see more. For now, I will assume that this teaser works better in theaters, since the first 40 seconds or so is...well, completely in the dark. The film opens on January 21, 2011.

Extra Tidbit: Del Toro turned down a chance to direct BLADE: TRINITY, ALIEN VS PREDATOR and HARRY AND THE PRISONER OF AZKABAN to work on his dream project HELLBOY in 2004.
