There’s a new international trailer and poster for Gramercy Pictures’ The Forest starring “Games of Thrones” fav Natalie Dormer, who ends up at the base of Mt. Fuji in Japan where the legendary real-life Aokigahara Forest is the setting of this supernatural thriller.
The UK quad is really cool, except for the fact that it rips off the one-sheet for Sam Raimi’s Drag Me to Hell. Still, putting them side-by-side I think it’s pretty clear the Forest art is way cooler.
In The Forest, “A young American woman, Sara (Dormer), journeys there in search of her twin sister, who has mysteriously disappeared. In the company of expatriate Aiden (Kinney), Sara enters the forest having been well warned to ‘stay on the path.’ Determined to discover the truth about her sister’s fate, Sara will have to face the angry and tormented souls of the dead that prey on anyone who dares come near them. These malevolent spirits lying in wait for Sara at every turn will plunge her into a frightening darkness from which she must fight to save herself.”
In theaters January 8th, 2016 via Gramercy Pictures, The Forest is based on an idea by David S. Goyer.
Natalie Dormer, Taylor Kinney, Eoin Macken and Yukiyoshi Ozawa all star.
