"If we open the door to superstition, where does that lead?" Now that everyone has the final installment of the Harry Potter franchise on Blu-Ray and DVD, it's officially time to allow The Boy Who Lived himself, Daniel Radcliffe, move on to new horizons. His first endeavor to follow the fantasy franchise is taking him to a dark place in the form of James Watkins' horror The Woman in Black. While the February release and PG-13 rating aren't thrilling elements of the film's release, this new trailer continues to make the film look pretty creepy, and Hammer Films came through with Let Me In, so I'll give it a chance. Watch below!
Here's the new trailer for The Woman in Black starring Daniel Radcliffe:
A young lawyer (Daniel Radcliffe) travels to a remote village to organize a recently deceased client's papers, where he uncovers tragic secrets and encounters the ghost of a scorned woman set on vengeance.
The Woman In Black is directed by British filmmaker James Watkins, of the horror Eden Lake previously. The screenplay was written by Jane Goldman, of Stardust, Kick-Ass, The Debt, X-Men: First Class, adapted from Susan Hill's classic novel, published in 1983. CBS Films will be distributing The Woman In Black in the US, and has already set a February 3rd, 2012 release date early next year. Visit their official website.
This looks like a good start for him to shed the typecasting of the Potter franchise, but I'd still love to see him take a role in Jay and Seth vs the Apocalypse.

"everyone" ethan?.....i don't have any of the potter movies on disc of any kind - no interest. as for this, it looks like it has GREAT atmosphere. the lack of a "R" rating doesn't disturb me too much - you can have a good haunted house movie without it.

God help me, I can only see and hear Harry. Looks like a very good movie though.
