Mysterious New Quad Poster for Scott Stewart's 'Dark Skies' Debuts
They're coming. As much as my fears keep me away, I'm strangely drawn to Dark Skies, something about it that makes me really want to see it. Maybe because it looks insanely creepy and I hate aliens, so there's an odd seduction to something so scary. We've seen a trailer and unimpressive US poster, but now Empire has debuted an official UK quad poster for the film directed by Scott Stewart. It reminds me a bit of the Take Shelter poster with the birds, but I love that it's just these eerie birds and houses at the bottom. This same imagery showed up on a Russian poster, so it's being used in their marketing, and I'm a fan of it. Good work!
From the producers of Paranormal Activity and Insidious comes Dark Skies: a supernatural thriller that follows a young family living in the suburbs. As husband and wife Daniel (Hamilton) and Lacey Barret (Russell) witness an escalating series of disturbing events involving their family, their safe and peaceful home quickly unravels. When it becomes clear that the Barret family is being targeted by an unimaginably terrifying and deadly force, Daniel & Lacey take matters into their own hands to solve this dark mystery.
Dark Skies is written & directed by Scott Charles Stewart, former visual effects producer for The Orphanage who directed both Priest and Legion recently. Dimension Films is releasing on February 22nd this month.
