First Look: The House With a Clock in Its Walls w/ Jack Black/Cate Blanchett

One of the upcoming kid's horror films that I'm really looking forward to checking out is director Eli Roth's adaptation of John Bellairs' 1973 novel THE HOUSE WITH A CLOCK IN ITS WALLS starring Jack Black, Cate Blanchett, and Kyle MacLachlan. And today we have your first look at the new film via an official still Roth just posted over on Instagram.

You can check out the still below and then prepare yourselves as Roth also promises that the film's trailer and poster will be hitting tomorrow! Are you excited? Make sure to hit us up and let us know in the comments below or on social media!


Lewis had always wanted to live in a house like Uncle Jonathan’s — full of marble fireplaces and secret passageways and dozens of unused, unexplored rooms. And living with Uncle Jonathan, a real wizard, was full of fun and surprises.

But while Uncle Jonathan practiced funny and comfortable white magic, the original owner of the old house, Isaac Izard, had been an evil sorcerer. Isaac Izard had devised a plan for bringing about the end of the world. Somewhere in the walls of the house he had hidden a clock. Every night Lewis and Uncle Jonathan could hear it ticking — sometimes loud, sometimes soft — marking off the minutes until doomsday.

Lewis knew they had to find the clock before it was too late. Then he decided to dabble in a litte magic of his own, and their time almost ran out.

Check back tomorrow for the film's trailer and poster!
