No doubt in time to play with Pacific Rim: Uprising later this week, the first trailer for Eli Roth’s fantasy horror adaptation The House with a Clock in Its Walls has been rated today by Alberta Film Ratings. If it’s playing with Steven S. DeKnight’s sequel, expect it online any day now; or if not, next week in time for Ready Player One (both films produced by Amblin Entertainment)!
The magical adventure tells the spine-tingling tale of 10-year-old Lewis who goes to live with his uncle in a creaky old house with a mysterious tick-tocking heart. But his new town’s sleepy façade jolts to life with a secret world of warlocks and witches when Lewis accidentally awakens the dead.
Starring Jack Black, Cate Blanchett, Kyle MacLachlan, Owen Vaccaro and Colleen Camp, the film is released September 21 in the U.S., followed by September 28 in the UK.
