New US Trailer for The Woman In Black: Angel Of Death arrives online

Entertainment One and Hammer have recently released their US trailer for Tom Harper's The Woman In Black: Angel Of Death, sending audiences screaming back to the dank disrepair of Eel Marsh House.

A couple of curious decisions there. Given the film's British WWII setting, the American accented child providing the voiceover in that clip's second half feels a bit incongruous to our ears. And there's also an attempt to mine a glorious ghost story from the past – that eerie song about the weeping willow comes from Jack Clayton's Turn Of The Screw adaptation The Innocents (1961). Whether it's really the record played on the gramophone as the clip suggests, or whether it's just for the benefit of the trailer, remains to be seen.

The sequel continues four decades after Daniel Radcliffe's Arthur Kipps found himself tangled with the dark secrets lurking within Eel Marsh House. Now the property has become a temporary lodging for evacuated children during World War II. Unfortunately for them, the funereally clad lady of the house is still in residence and the Luftwaffe prove to be the least of their worries.

Our heroes this time out are teacher Eve Parkins (Phoebe Fox) and Harry Burnstow (Jeremy Irvine), who must help her uncover – and survive – the house's dark secrets.

Peaky Blinders veteran Harper takes up the directing reins, working from Jon Croker's (Fast Girls) script. With Helen McCrory (Skyfall), Adrian Rawlins (Breaking The Waves), Oaklee Pendergast (Oaklee Pendergast), Amelia Pidgeon (3096 Days) and Jude Wright (Spy) among the cast, The Woman In Black: Angel Of Death arrives on 13 February next year. Now there's a spooky way to spend Valentine's Day.
