WATCH: Invisible Man Remake Releases First Trailer
The trailer for the 2020 remake of The Invisible Man has officially been released by Universal Pictures on Wednesday (Nov. 7).
The remake of the 1897 HG Wells novel, which was given its first treatment in the film industry back in 1933, will star Oliver Jackson-Cohen as the Invisible Man, and Elisabeth Moss.
The tagline that comes with the dark and dangerous new trailer reads: “What you can’t see can hurt you”
The synopsis of the film reads:
“Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy and brilliant scientist, Cecilia Kass (Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding, aided by her sister (Harriet Dyer), their childhood friend (Aldis Hodge, Hidden Figures) and his teenage daughter (Storm Reid).
“But when Cecilia’s abusive ex (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) commits suicide and leaves her a generous portion of his vast fortune, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax.
“As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia’s sanity begins to unravel as she desperately tries to prove that she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.”
“I wanted to kind of get away from [the original version] and make something that was really modern, really grounded, or as grounded as you can be when you’re dealing with a film called <em>The Invisible Man</em>.”
said Director Leigh Whennel as he tell <em>EW</em> his ideas for the film.
