The blokes over at Bloody-Disgusting has got your first look at images of Jessica Alba from her new movie, the Tom Cruise-produced horror “The Eye”, a remake of the Chinese movie of the same name originally starring Angelica Lee and written and directed by the Pang Brothers. (Read our review of the original here.) I’m not sure what’s happening in the first picture (Jessica looks horrified at what’s happened to the cookies she was baking, apparently; but the second picture looks like the infamous scene in the elevator where the character notices a ghost appearing and standing behind her. The scene is just tremendous, because the heroine is trapped in the elevator with the ghost and can’t go anywhere, and she has to stand there and pretend the ghost isn’t there. It scared the hell out of me when I first saw it in the original movie.
In the film Sydney, a young, blind violinist is given the chance to see for the first time since childhood through a miraculous corneal transplant. As Sydney adjusts to a dizzying new world of colors and shapes, she is haunted by frightening visions of death itself capturing the doomed and dragging them away from the world of the living. Terrorized and on the brink of insanity, Sydney must discover whose eyes she has inherited, and what secret visions they have held.
Starring Jessica Alba, Alessandro Nivola, Parker Posey, Chloe Grace Moretz, FranÃ§ois Chau, and directed by David Moreau and Xavier Palud.
“The Eye” sees you February 1, 2008.
