Just last week we revealed new stills from British film The Awakening, and today Britain’s Guardian website has exclusively unveiled the first trailer.
Starring Rebecca Hall and Dominic West, and directed by Nick Murphy, the film follows Florence Cathcart (Hall), an author and paranormal sceptic who is hired by the headmaster of a boys’ boarding school (West) to investigate reports of a haunting. Also featuring Oscar nominee Imelda Staunton, this first trailer leaves us suitably terrified, but also wondering if we haven’t seen this storyline before – hauntings in old houses in the middle-of-nowhere-Britain is hardly something new.
Still, Hall is a fantastic actress, with strong performances in awards favourites such as The Town and Vicky Cristina Barcelona, and with The Awakening showing at London Film Festvial this October, before wide release on November 11th, we’re hoping this will do well over the Hallowe’en season.
British film The Awakening is set to show at this year BFI London Film Festival, and the BFI website has just released some images from the horror film.
Starring Rebecca Hall (The Town), Dominic West (300), and Oscar nominee Imelda Staunton, the film is set in 1920′s London and is directed by Nick Murphy, who also wrote the screenplay along with Stephen Volk.
London, 1921, and in a country recovering from the emotional and physical demands of the First World War, some are turning to séances and spiritualism for solace. Academic and writer Florence Cathcart (Rebecca Hall) is a determined realist with an unwavering confidence in logic and science, who revels in exposing the supernatural as a lie. Schoolmaster Robert Mallory (Dominic West) tracks Florence down to tell her of incidents at Rockwood, a boys’ boarding school in the country, where a child has recently died. This has caused panic amongst parents, while the pupils are driven to distraction by tales of a ghostly presence roaming the hallways. Though naturally cynical, Florence feels compelled to travel to Rockwood, determined to find a reasoned explanation for the troubling events. Yet in an environment populated by characters who are often curious or furtive, Florence starts to uncover more secrets than she bargained for.
The Awakening can be seen at LFF on Tuesday 25th October and Wednesday 26th October, and tickets can be purchased from here, before wide release in the UK on November 11th.
