The upcoming horror The Black Phone stars Ethan Hawke and comes from director Scott Derrickson – here’s the main trailer for the film.
It’s been around a year and a half since we learned that Scott Derrickson, director of Marvel’s Doctor Strange and the spooky Sinister, was teaming with Jason Blum of Blumhouse and Universal for Black Phone, an adaptation of the Joe Hill novella. With the film set to hit cinemas in June (delayed from its original February release slot) we now have a second trailer to set our teeth further on edge.
Black Phone is adapted from the Joe Hill short story, centered around a kidnapped child, whose only means of communication whilst trapped in a cellar is via a long-disconnected, antique telephone. The film stars Ethan Hawke as a seriously-creepy serial killer and Mason Thames as the child who is kidnapped by him, but can communicate via the phone in order to escape.
Black Phone will mark Derrickson’s resumption of his partnership with Blumhouse, with whom he made the Sinister films. The director joined the project after leaving Marvel’s Doctor Strange sequel over creative differences. Early reviews for the film have been good, so be sure to check out the main trailer ahead of The Black Phone‘s release in June.
