Summit Entertainment has released your first look at a geeky Ethan Hawke from the movie “Sinister”. In the film, Hawke plays a true crime novelist trying to solve a family’s murder by using thr family’s home videos. But the more our hero searches, the more he puts his life, and the life of his family, into the path of a “supernatural entity”.
Yes, it’s basically a variation on the Found Footage horror movie genre, but not really. Kinda, though, as I suspect you’ll see plenty of “home video” footage in the movie.
Also starring Vincent D’Onofrio, James Ransone, Fred Dalton Thompson, Clare Foley, Cameron Ocasio, Victoria Leigh, Juliet Rylance, and Michael Hall D’Addario.
Scott Derrickson (“The Day the Earth Stood Still”) directs from a script he co-wrote with C. Robert Cargill.
