The House With a Clock in Its Walls trailer: Cate Blanchett and Jack Black go Gothic

Universal have released the first trailer for The House With a Clock in Its Walls, an adaptation of John Bellairs 1973 children's Gothic horror novel of the same name. It forms part of the Lewis Barnavelt series, which featured 11 books in total, so if this is a success at the box office, expect a lot more to follow. Check out the trailer above now to see what you think.

The adventure tells the tale of 10-year-old Lewis (Owen Vaccaro) 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.

Eli Roth directs, with Jack Black playing Lewis' uncle and Cate Blanchett taking on the role of a witch. Owen Vaccaro, Kyle MacLachlan, Colleen Camp, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Vanessa Anne Williams, and Sunny Suljic also feature in the cast.

The House With a Clock in Its Walls will arrive in the UK on September 28th 2018.
