Teasing at this week’s San Diego Comic-Con, Universal Pictures has unveiled the official trailer and one sheet for Jim Sheridan’s Dream House, their suspense thriller in theaters September 30 starring Daniel Craig, Naomi Watts, Rachel Weisz, Marton Csokas, Elias Koteas and Jane Alexander.
Arriving in theaters September 30 (edited down to receive a PG-13), the gorgeous poster is a massive step up from this piece of crap and features a very Shining-esque moment with a pair of twins who promise to be the “key” to the movie. Speaking of The Shining, the below trailer appears to give homage to Kubrick’s classic, along with The Amityville Horror and The Strangers. But what concerns me most is that the trailer sort of implies that everything that happens is within Will Atenton’s (Daniel Craig) head — does this mean the finale promises to have a non-supernatural twist? Barf.
“Successful publisher Will Atenton (Craig) quit a high power job in Manhattan to relocate his wife, Libby (Weisz), and two girls to a quaint New England town. But as they settle into their new life, they discover their perfect home was the murder scene of a mother and her children. And the entire city believes it was at the hands of the husband who survived.
When Will investigates, he’s not sure if he’s starting to see ghosts or if the tragic story is just hitting too close to home. His only clues come from Ann Paterson (Watts), a mysterious neighbor who knew those who were shot. And as Will and Ann piece together the haunting puzzle, they must find out who murdered the family in Will’s dream house before he returns to kill again.” Watch the newly launched official website for more or become a fan on Facebook.
