First Official Trailer for Eli Roth's 'The House with a Clock in Its Walls'
"Do you hear the ticking… ticking… ticking…?" Universal has revealed the first full trailer for Eli Roth's next film, an adaptation of the children's horror classic, titled The House with a Clock in Its Walls. This "spine-tingling tale" is produced by Amblin Entertainment (yeah, seriously!) and is described as being in the "tradition of Amblin classics where fantastical events occur in the most unexpected places." Owen Vaccaro stars as Lewis, a 10-year-old boy who goes to live with his uncle in a creaky old house with a mysterious tick-tocking heart. The full cast includes Jack Black, Cate Blanchett, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Sunny Suljic, and Kyle MacLachlan. This actually looks way better than expected, I'm definitely curious about this now. I also love the vintage Universal logo at the start. Oh yes, I'm seriously down for this. Check it out.
Here's the very first trailer (+ poster) for Eli Roth's The House with a Clock in Its Walls, on YouTube:

Very interested to see this. Reminds me of how Scorsese did Hugo.

This looks pretty intriguing! I dig the style. Who would've thought Eli Roth had it in him to direct a kids movie! HA!

Quite the departure from Hostel kind of trash indeed! We'll see what comes of it!

A title that is entirely too long.

Will see just to see Roth outside his usual comfort zone. and ofc because of the Gold fonts in title. Adventure movies needs gold fonts. Then they are automatically good.
