The last trailer we saw for The Woman in Black was heavy on atmosphere but light on plot, deploying shots of run-down toys, some mysterious little girls, and a terrified-looking Daniel Radcliffe to set an effectively creepy mood. The newer UK trailer is somewhat more straightforward, offering fewer shots of eerie monkey toys but a much better idea of the actual story.
Radcliffe stars as young lawyer Arthur Kipps, who travels to the countryside in order to settle the affairs of a recently deceased client. Once there, he encounters the spectre of a woman hell-bent on revenge. The period horror was directed by James Watkins (Eden Lake) from a screenplay by Jane Goldman (Stardust, Kick-Ass), which in turn was adapted from Susan Hill‘s 1983 novel. Ciarán Hinds, Janet McTeer, and Roger Allam also star. Watch the trailer after the jump.
