the invisible man trailer

Elisabeth Moss is in serious trouble in The Invisible Man, a new take on the classic Universal horror movie. Far removed from the original H.G. Wells story that inspired it as well as the original 1933 movie directed by James Whale, this new The Invisible Man comes from Leigh Whannell, writer of Insidious and director of Upgrade. Elisabeth Moss plays a woman who escapes an abusive relationship only to find herself tormented by an invisible force. Watch The Invisible Man trailer below.

The Dark Universe is rising from the grave! Sort of! Almost two years after Tom Cruise’s The Mummy both launched and killed Universal’s monster cinematic universe in one fell swoop, Blumhouse is set to take over with a new version of The Invisible Man. Leigh Whannell, who helmed the kick-ass horror action flick Upgrade, will direct. At one point, Johnny Depp was attached to star – but that’s no longer the case. This is going to be a fresh start.

Upgrade trailer

Each year during Austin’s SXSW Film Festival, press attendees (like myself) must pick-and-choose amidst a Texas-sized whirlwind of conflicting screening times and maximum exhaustion. In 2018, that meant (excitedly) interviewing Upgrade writer/director Leigh Whannell alongside stars Logan Marshall-Green and Betty Gabriel instead of catching a buzzy midday showing…like it was even a hard choice? Upgrade won the Midnighters Audience Award and ended up being one of my festival highlights with good reason. Check out my glowing review.

When sitting down with three talented parties such as Whannell, Gabriel and Green, there’s never enough time to ask even half the questions you prepare, but that doesn’t stop an interviewer from trying. Whannell opened up about time-hop filmmaking on a budget, Gabriel exposed the mindset of her character, and Green permitted the same. There was plenty to be said about where society is headed and how Upgrade takes that into consideration along with sci-fi discussions about existing examples of cultural deconstruction. Ideas have to come from somewhere – social influences or past Hollywood classics.

Upgrade Review

(This review originally ran during our coverage of the SXSW Film Festival. Upgrade is in theaters today.)

Leigh Whannell’s latest film Upgrade is one of the most strikingly invigorated sci-fi watches I’ve been awestruck by in quite some time. I’m talking *hard* sci-fi, with callbacks to anything from eXistenZ to The Matrix to Minority Report. Whannell customizes an “efficient” future not so far from our own, where self-driving Loop Dash vehicles chauffeur around bioengineered super-beings and pizzas aren’t ordered, they’re printed. It’s the kind of SmartHouse, techno-takeover world that Apple users dream of, blackened and revenge-ified by Whannell’s oddly apt Her meets Weekend At Bernie’s scramble – with way more splattered blood and guts.
