The new Invisible Man trailer shows Elisabeth Moss fighting back against an unseen threat — and fighting to convince everyone around her it actually exists.
Originally a science fiction novel by acclaimed author H. G. Wells, 1897’s The Invisible Man told the tale of Griffin, a scientist who invents a way to change become invisible. He tests his invention on himself and is successful, but is unable to reverse it. Stuck as an invisible man, Griffin decides to begin a ‘reign of terror’ in which he will use his ability to inflict random acts of terror and violence on the nation.
The story inspired a film adaption in 1933 which closely followed the book and is widely considered a classic in the genre of science-fiction horror.
Leigh Whannell’s upcoming The Invisible Man certainly cites the H.G. Wells story as its inspiration, but instead of being an adaptation, is billed as a modern re-imagining of the classic story that shows us that some men are monsters in more ways than one.
Check out the trailer below!
The Invisible Man centers on Cecilia Kass, a woman trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy and brilliant scientist, Adrian Griffin. Afraid for her life, Cecilia plans and successfully escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding, aided by her sister, along with their childhood friend and his teenage daughter.
But when Cecilia’s abusive ex 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.
The Invisible Man stars Elisabeth Moss as Cecilia Kass, Oliver Jackson-Cohen as Adrian Griffin, Harriety Dyer as Cecilia’s sister Alice, Aldis Hodge as childhood friend James and Storm Reid as his daughter Sydney.
Leigh Whannell (Saw, Insidious) is the writer and director of the film.
The Invisible Man will appear in theaters on February 28, 2020.
