‘The Invisible Man’ Trailer Sees Elisabeth Moss Fighting for Her Life

The Invisible Man Trailer Elisabeth Moss Stars in the Sci Fi Horror Remake

"I wanted to kind of... make something that was really modern, really grounded, or as grounded as you can be when you're dealing with a film called The Invisible Man". Given the director's comedic bent, one would assume that Dark Army - if it moves forward - will not be as horror-centric as a Blumhouse entry. The Invisible Man was announced earlier this year.

This is a new twist on the classic Invisible Man story by author H.G. Wells, who framed the title character as the protagonist. The film is directed by Saw alum Leigh Whannell and stars Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Elisabeth Moss, Aldis Hodge, and Storm Reid.

In 2000, "Hollow Man", which starred Kevin Bacon, took a story route akin to Well's acclaimed fictional piece where a lead scientist volunteers to be the test subject of an invisibility experiment with consequences. As a sequence of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the life of these she enjoys, Cecilia's sanity starts to unravel as she desperately attempts to prove that she is now being hunted by anyone nobody can see.

Produced by Jason Blum and Kylie du Fresne, The Invisible Man is executive produced by Beatriz Sequeira, Charles Layton, Rosemary Blight, Ben Grant, Couper Samuelson, Jeanette Volturno and Whannell himself.

Quickly after Tom Cruise's The Mummy debuted to unsafe assessments and underperformed on the field enterprise, Common reassessed its designs for a shared cinematic universe of it and opted to give attention to filmmaker-driven assignments for studio's traditional film monsters.

The movie is part of Universal's rebooting of its classic "monster" catalogue of screen characters, though it suffered a rocky start. However, after the recent Tom Cruise adaptation of The Mummy bombed at the box office, Universal quashed numerous original projects that were planned.

The Invisible Man stalks into theaters on February 28. No this isn't a gender-swapped version, the Invisible Man is very much still a man - The Haunting of Hill Houses' Oliver Jackson-Cohen, in fact - but now he's the abusive scientist husband torturing his wife... even after his alleged death. I wish I could give you a more definitive take, but I'm still getting up the nerve to press "play" again.
