Universal Pictures released a second trailer for “The House with a Clock in Its Walls,” a fantasy thriller coming to theaters later this fall. The film has an impressive cast behind it, including Jack Black and two-time Academy Award winner Cate Blanchett.
The story follows 10-year-old Lewis (Owen Vaccaro) who goes to live with his uncle in a scary old house with a mysterious tick-tocking heart. Soon after his arrival, the sleepy town that he now calls home is suddenly involved with warlocks and witches. The film is based on the beloved children’s classic written by John Bellairs and illustrated by Edward Gorey (starting at $7 on Amazon). “The House with a Clock in Its Walls” was directed by popular horror-thriller expert Eli Roth, and written by Eric Kripke (creator of TV’s Supernatural).
Along with Black and Blanchett, the film also stars Kyle MacLachlan, Colleen Camp, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Vanessa Anne Williams, Lorenza Izzo and Sunny Suljic. The film was produced by Mythology Entertainment’s Brad Fischer (Shutter Island) and James Vanderbilt (Zodiac), along with Kripke. You can watch the second trailer released for the film below, and set a reminder to watch it in theaters this September.
“The House with a Clock in Its Walls” will be released by Universal Pictures on September 21, 2018.
