Friday, October 7th, marks the 162nd anniversary of Edgar Allan Poe’s death, and in honor of the occasion we have two new stills from James McTeigue’s upcoming film The Raven. In addition, the director and Luke Evans, one of the film’s stars, will participate in a ceremony at Poe’s gravesite in Baltimore tomorrow, which is also when the first trailer will be released.

The ceremony is being held at 2:00 PM ET at Westminster Hall and Burying Ground in Baltimore, Maryland. If you live in the area, be sure to stop by and pay your respects.

Look for The Raven in theatres on March 9th, 2012. John Cusack, Luke Evans, Alice Eve, Brendan Gleeson and Oliver Jackson-Cohen star, working from a script by Ben Livingston and Hannah Shakespeare.

The Raven begins with Poe arriving in Baltimore as a serial killer is terrorizing the city, using the writer’s stories as the inspiration for his crimes. Poe is a suspect at first, but he eventually joins forces with a police inspector to solve the crimes and save the woman he loves.

Synopsis
In this gritty thriller, Edgar Allan Poe (John Cusack, Being John Malkovich) joins forces with a young Baltimore detective (Luke Evans, Immortals) to hunt down a mad serial killer who’s using Poe’s own works as the basis in a string of brutal murders. Directed by James McTeigue (V for Vendetta), the film also stars Alice Eve (Sex and the City 2), Brendan Gleeson (In Bruges) and Oliver Jackson-Cohen (Faster).

When a mother and daughter are found brutally murdered in 19th century Baltimore, Detective Emmett Fields makes a startling discovery: the crime resembles a fictional murder described in gory detail in the local newspaper—part of a collection of stories penned by struggling writer and social pariah Edgar Allan Poe. But even as Poe is questioned by police, another grisly murder occurs, also inspired by a popular Poe story.

Realizing a serial killer is on the loose using Poe’s writings as the backdrop for his bloody rampage, Fields enlists the author’s help in stopping the attacks. But when it appears someone close to Poe may become the murderer’s next victim, the stakes become even higher and the inventor of the detective story calls on his own powers of deduction to try to solve the case before it’s too late.
