Clown Trailer

"Lure people out of the villages into its cave with his white face and red nose…" The Weinstein Company has debuted a trailer for the horror film Clown, which is directed by Jon Watts, the filmmaker now set to direct the next Spider-Man movie. It's actually based on a fake trailer that Watts originally made in 2012 that included fake credits for producer Eli Roth. Roth actually saw the trailer, got involved, and helped them make a feature version and this is the final product. The concept is about a clown suit that a father finds that when he puts it on turns him into an evil child-eating clown, which reminds me a bit of Santa Clause or The Mask (though this is much, much more sinister). The cast includes Andy Powers, Laura Allen, Peter Stormare, Christian Distefano, Chuck Shamata, and Elizabeth Whitmere. See both trailers below.

Here's the official release trailer (+ a poster) for Jon Watts' Clown, direct from YouTube:

And here's the original "fake" trailer for Clown made by Jon Watts in 2012, also on YouTube:

A little boy's birthday party gets ruined when his entertainment (a clown) cancels. His father finds a clown suit and becomes the new entertainment but something is weird about it, there is an evil curse and it won't come off. He specializes in eating little kids… everything after that goes down hill. Clown is directed by up-and-coming American filmmaker Jon Watts, who worked for "The Onion News Network" before his feature directing debut Cop Car. He's also set to direct the next Spider-Man movie. The screenplay is by Jon Watts and Christopher Ford. This feature is based on the original fake trailer seen above, with Eli Roth producing. Clown first opened in Italy in 2014 and also played around the world in 2015 at various film festivals, but doesn't arrive in select US theaters until June 17th, 2016 this summer. Anyone interested?

      Hey everyone, ^ this guy has an opinion.

      I'm pretty much indifferent when it comes to Roth. I love Cabin Fever, and that ended up being one of the most fun theater experiences I've had. The place was packed, and the whole crowd was into it.

    I really despise most of horrors today. The society is full of monsters and movies mostly just can't, or better said, refuse to recognize them or they are doing it poorly. As a substitute for that, we got this disgrace of horror. Sad, really sad ...

    I don't know how people aren't onboard with this one.
    • Because Eli Roth. Isn't this a good reason?

    This definitely came out more than a year ago. Anyone can find this online somewhere in high quality. I'm surprised this is even up on your site.

      This is a revised trailer, at the time I don't think it had distribution. Pretentious
