Don’t Be Afraid of the Dark, The movie co-written and produced by Guillermo del Toro [co-writter Matthew Robbins] and directed by Troy Nixey has a trailer out. The movie centers on young girl [Bailee Madison] who moves in with her father [Guy Pearce] and his girlfriend [Katie Holmes] and they discover they are sharing the house with
devilish creatures Goblins. The movie eventually found a home with FilmDistrict after MGM went tits up and will hit theaters this August 26th in the U.S. The trailer is well, cliche ridden beyond belief and I am hoping thats just the commercialization of the teaser and that the movie packs more punch. Hit the jump to check it out.
Sally Hurst (Bailee Madison), a lonely, withdrawn child, has just arrived in Rhode Island to live with her father Alex (Guy Pearce) and his new girlfriend Kim (Katie Holmes) at the 19th-century mansion they are restoring. While exploring the sprawling estate, the young girl discovers a hidden basement, undisturbed since the strange disappearance of the mansion’s builder a century ago. When Sally unwittingly lets loose a race of ancient, dark-dwelling creatures who conspire to drag her down into the mysterious house’s bottomless depths, she must convince Alex and Kim that it’s not a fantasy—before the evil lurking in the dark consumes them all."
