This week we have a new trailer and image as well as an exciting competition for James Watkins‘ The Woman In Black, starring British actor Daniel Radcliffe (Harry Potter).
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 in the 1900s. When he travels to a remote English village, he encounters the ghost of a scorned woman set on vengeance. On further exploration into the village’s secrets he learns that children there routinely die under mysterious circumstances, and begins to encounter fearful visions of a female figure draped in black.
In celebration for the film’s UK release (10th Feb 2012), Radcliffe wants you submit your own Ghost stories to YouTube for a chance to go to London to attend the Premiere in January, for Radcliffe to read out your story for an extra on the DVD, and to win a merchandise site which includes a signed poster.
The competition ends on 20th December, but it is for UK and Ireland residents only. If you would to know more, however, visit the film’s YouTube page here for full details.
CBS Films have also released another atmospheric still, which can be seen below, and a new trailer, which seem to be getting scarier and scarier.
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.
