'The Invisible Man' Trailer: Elisabeth Moss is Haunted by Something Unseen

Well, from the looks of the trailer for the new Invisible Man reboot, Australia's own Leigh Whannell has finally cracked the character. Given the director's comedic bent, one would assume that Dark Army - if it moves forward - will not be as horror-centric as a Blumhouse entry. The new Invisible Man writer/director may raise some eyebrows, however.

The adaptation of the 1897 HG Wells novel, which was given its first iteration on the big screen in 1933, will star The Handmaid's Tale actress Elisabeth Moss.

"Cecilia Kass (Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding, aided by her sister, their childhood friend and his teenage daughter", the film's synopsis states.

In the recently released trailer, we see Elisabeth Moss in the role of Cecilia, a woman whose aggressive ex ("Haunting of Hill House" star Oliver Jackson-Cohen) supposedly commits suicide, leaving her a hefty fortune of $5 million as long as she's found to be mentally competent.

Trump says Bloomberg wouldn't do well in 2020
Advisers to Mr Bloomberg said he would likely make up his mind about the race within days, rather than weeks. The early states offer just a small percentage of the delegates needed to clinch the Democratic nomination.

Australian filmmaker Leigh Whannell (who directed the Saw and Insidious movies) wrote and directed The Invisible Man. In 2016 it was finally announced as part of Universal's roll-out for a planned, extensive "Dark Universe" that would feature classic movie monsters (The Mummy, Frankenstein's Monster, The Bride of Frankenstein, etc.) reimagined and crossing over in MCU-style.

Starring Two-time Emmy and Golden Globe victor Elisabeth Moss (The Handmaid's Tale) and Oliver Jackson-Cohen (The Haunting of Hill House), the film will make its debut on February 28, 2020.

Elisabeth Moss is fighting for her life - and her sanity - in the new trailer for Universal's unsettling sci-fi thriller The Invisible Man. Also noteworthy is the name ofJason Blum, the fashion producer in American horror movies with his studio Blumhouse. However, after the recent Tom Cruise adaptation of The Mummy bombed at the box office, Universal quashed numerous original projects that were planned. I feel like, if you're going to hang an entire film on someone's shoulders, you need an actor as good as Lizzie. Then again, maybe you won't.
