Universal has released a trailer for its reboot of The Invisible Man. In the wake of the Marvel Cinematic Universe’s success, other studios have tried to launch their own highly-profitable shared universes. Universal, in particular, attempted to resurrect its monster movie franchises by hiring actors like Javier Bardem and Johnny Depp to star in its so-called Dark Universe. Things didn’t work out, however, so the studio is now joining forces with Blumhouse and writer-director Leigh Whannell for a standalone Invisible Man reboot that could lead to similar remakes in the future.
The first images from The Invisible Man were released yesterday, offering a sneak peek at Elisabeth Moss as the film’s main character, Cecilia Kass. In terms of plot, the movie follow Cecilia as she flees her abusive boyfriend (The Haunting of Hill House‘s Oliver Jackson-Cohen) one night, in an effort to hide and begin rebuilding her life. Cecilia is later told her ex has committed suicide, but gradually comes to suspect he may not be dead at all. And judging by the trailer, it’s safe to say she’s right.
Universal dropped its trailer for The Invisible Man online this morning, and will presumably screen it in theaters with this week’s horror movie release, Doctor Sleep. You can check it out, below.
