Based on the book by John Bellairs and illustrator Edward Gorey, the Eli Roth-directed film follows Owen Vaccaro's Lewis into a mysterious old house that brings him into a world of witches and warlocks.
Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment have released the first trailer and poster for their upcoming fall release THE HOUSE WITH A CLOCK IN ITS WALL, starring Jack Black, Cate Blanchett and Owen Vaccaro.
Based on the 1973 children's book from John Bellairs illustrated by Edward Gorey, The House with a Clock in Its Walls is directed by Eli Roth from a screenplay by Eric Kripke (Supernatural).
The film co-stars Kyle MacLachlan, Colleen Camp, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Vanessa Anne Williams and Sunny Suljic, and it's produced by Mythology Entertainment’s Brad Fischer and James Vanderbilt, as well as Kripke, and executive produced by William Sherak, Tracey Nyberg and Laeta Kalogridis.
The magical adventure tells the spine-tingling tale of 10-year-old Lewis (Owen Vaccaro) who goes to live with his uncle in a creaky old house with a mysterious tick-tocking heart. But his new town’s sleepy façade jolts to life with a secret world of warlocks and witches when Lewis accidentally awakens the dead.
Universal Pictures will release The House with a Clock in Its Walls on September 21.
