While the summer has been awash with big action films, a heaping help of sci-fi and a trio of superhero movies, The Tall Man is coming to lead us into the fall. Director Pascal Laugier’s horror thriller centers on Julia Denning (Jessica Biel), the nurse of a small town which has been plagued by the recent disappearances of their children. Julia doesn’t put much stock in the culprit being the local urban legend of The Tall Man until her own son is taken. And though you’ve seen the trailer, posters and clips from the film, now The Tall Man is coming for you in this new motion poster. Also starring Jodelle Ferland, Stephen McHattie, William B. Davis and Jakob Davies, The Tall Man opens August 31st. Hit the jump to check out the motion poster.
The new motion poster for The Tall Man follows after the film’s official synopsis:
In an isolated, slowly dying mining town, children are vanishing without a trace – abducted, the townsfolk whisper, by a mysterious entity known locally as “The Tall Man.” Town nurse Julia Denning (Jessica Biel) seems skeptical…until her young David disappears in the middle of night. Frantic to rescue the boy, Julia lives every parent’s darkest nightmare in this twisting, shock-around-each-corner thriller from acclaimed director Pascal Laugier (“Martyrs”) called THE TALL MAN.
