Hammer Films’ “The Woman in Black” with that Harry Potter kid turned adult actor was pretty good. It had a lot of great moments and that was one creepy old broad. And since that movie was a surprised hit for all involved, the sequel has now arrived, and it’s yes, mostly the same. Hey, if it ain’t broke, then don’t blah blah blah, amirite, producers?
Check out the first trailer for Tom Harper’s “The Woman in Black: Angel of Death” below, check it outers. It’s a bit short on footage and high on the creep factor, as you would expect from a teaser trailer.
As bombs rain down on London during the Blitz of World War II, a group of school children are evacuated with Eve, their young and beautiful schoolteacher, to the safety of the English countryside. Taken to an old and empty estate, cut-off by a causeway from the mainland, they are left at Eel Marsh House. One by one the children begin acting strangely and Eve, with the help of local military commander Harry, discovers that the group has awoken a dark force even more terrifying and evil than the city’s air raids. Eve must now confront her own demons to save the children and escape the wrath of The Woman in Black.
Phoebe Fox leads a cast this time ’round, and includes Jeremy Irvine, Helen McCrory, Adrian Rawlins, Ned Dennehy, Oaklee Pendergast, Amelia Pidgeon, and Leilah de Meza.
The Brits get it first early next year.
