Check This Out: First Don't Be Afraid of the Dark Teaser Poster
Otherwise known as Guillermo del Toro's Don't Be Afraid of the Dark. CHUD has premiered the teaser poster for the horror/thriller remake starring Katie Holmes, Guy Pearce and Bailee Madison (the little girl). It's another one of those hand-drawn artistic teaser posters because it's a Comic-Con exclusive that is being given out at the show this weekend. There is a big panel for Don't Be Afraid of the Dark on Friday afternoon at Comic-Con and I'm sure we'll get to see an actual trailer for it then, so stay tuned for even more coverage. I'm not the biggest fan of this poster, but it is a pretty damn cool bit of artwork for this thriller. Check it out!
Entertainment Weekly also recently debuted the first photo of Katie Holmes in this - you can find that here.
Here's the basic synopsis: A young girl (Bailee Madison) sent to live with her father (Guy Pearce) and his girlfriend (Katie Holmes) discovers creatures in her new home who want to claim her as one of their own.
Don't Be Afraid of the Dark was directed by up-and-coming filmmaker and comic book artist Troy Nixey, of only the Latchkey's Lament short previously. The script was co-written by Matthew Robbins (Dragonslayer, Mimic, The Concert) and Guillermo del Toro (Hellboy, Pan's Labyrinth The Hobbit). This is a remake of the 1973 TV movie Don't Be Afraid of the Dark directed by John Newland starring Kim Darby. Miramax Films is bringing Don't Be Afraid of the Dark to theaters starting January 21st, 2011 early next year - stay tuned!
