The second full-length trailer for The Woman in Black has been released this week, promising that Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter) can do more than wizardry.
Directed by James Watkins (Eden Lake), and based on the 1983 thriller fiction novel by Susan Hill of the same name, Radcliffe plays the role of a young lawyer who travels to a remote village where he encounters the ghost of a scorned woman set on vengeance on a small English town.
This new and extremely creepy trailer drags us deeper into the torment that Radcliffe is faced with. It looks like he works well in this horror too; it’s good to see him in a more serious film and so shortly after the end of the Harry Potter franchise as well.
The Woman In Black also stars Ciarán Hinds (Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy), Janet McTeer (Albert Nobbs), Mary Stockley, and Liz White (TV’s The Crimson Petal and the White) and is set to be released in the US on 3rd February, 2012, and in the UK on 10th February, 2012.
The first trailer can be seen below, and the second one here.
