The Invisible Man trailer: H.G.Wells' classic sci-fi story returns to our screens
H.G.Wells' timeless classic, The Invisible Man, has provided plenty of material for cinema over the years, with Blumhouse's new version being the 20th film to date. Famed horror director James Whales' 1933 version is still viewed as being the pick of the bunch, and it's been a while since Kevin Bacon's Hollow Man (although there was an even worse sequel in 2006) was inflicted upon us. Given where we are with technology today it feels like a good moment to resurrect the story - and with Blumhouse's B-movie leanings it could end up being a good match. Although, the editing in the trailer really doesn't make this look very good at all but we can only hope for the best. Watch The Invisible Man trailer above.
Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy and brilliant scientist, Cecilia Kass escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding, aided by her sister, their childhood friend and his teenage daughter. But when Cecilia’s abusive ex commits suicide and leaves her a generous portion of his vast fortune, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia’s sanity begins to unravel as she desperately tries to prove that she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.
Leigh Whannell (Upgrade) is directing a cast starring Elisabeth Moss, Aldis Hodge, Storm Reid, Harriet Dyer and Oliver Jackson-Cohen.
