Dark Places

Mad Max: Fury Road co-stars Charlize Theron and Nicholas Hoult reunite under very different circumstances in the first U.S. trailer for Dark Places, based on the bestselling novel by Gillian Flynn (Gone Girl).

Theron plays Libby, who as a child survived a horrifying incident that left her mother and two sisters dead. Her testimony pegged her brother as the killer, sending him to prison for life. But 25 years later, Libby is approached by true-crime obsessive Lyle (Hoult), who forces her to reexamine what happened on that fateful night. Watch the Dark Places trailer after the jump.
