First Trailer Released for ‘The House With a Clock in Its Walls’

The first trailer for the feature film adaptation of RMG client John Bellairs’ beloved novel The House With a Clock in its Walls has been released. Full of visual flair and spectacular design, the film looks to be a feast for the eyes and jam-packed with action and thrills.

The story is as follows: The House With a Clock in its Walls is a magical adventure and spine-tingling tale of 10-year-old Lewis, who goes to live with his uncle in a creaky old house with a mysterious tick-tocking heart. But his new town’s sleepy facade jolts to life with a secret world of warlocks and witches when Lewis accidentally awakens the dead.

The film stars Jack Black and Cate Blanchett in what appear to be delightful turns, and is directed by horror-maestro Eli Roth in a departure from his usual adult-skewing fare. Also note the retro Universal and Amblin cards at the top of the trailer. This movie is sure to be full of throwback fun.
