It’s no secret I’m a huge fan of the original The Woman in Black, and while I enjoyed Hammer’s recent remake, it didn’t quite capture the chilling atmosphere of the 1989 UK TV movie. Even so, I have high hopes for the sequel, The Woman in Black: Angel of Death, heading our way in 2015; and today we have a second teaser trailer from the film to share.
Look for it in US theaters on January 30, 2015, from Relativity. To be released by eOne in the UK on February 13, 2015, the film is directed by Tom Harper.
The Woman in Black: Angel of Death stars Phoebe Fox in her first leading role in a feature film. Fox is joined by Jeremy Irvine (War Horse, Great Expectations, The Railway Man), the award-winning Helen McCrory (Skyfall, Hugo, Harry Potter and The Deathly Hallows), and rising star Oaklee Pendergast (The Impossible).
Hammer is looking to take the franchise route with The Woman in Black, starting with this one, which is set 40 years after the events of the original film.
England, 1941. With London in the midst of the blitz, two teachers evacuate a group of schoolchildren to the abandoned Eel Marsh House. Seeking safety from the bombs in the remote coastal location, the group instead find themselves facing an evil far more frightening when their arrival awakens the Woman in Black.
