The official U.S. trailer for The Woman in Black 2 Angel of Death has been released. Directed by Tom Harper, the horror sequel takes place 40 years after the events of the first film, during the London bombings of World War II, and revolves around a pair of schoolteachers (Phoebe Fox and Helen McCrory) who lead a group of children in evacuation to the abandoned Eel Marsh House. I’m a sucker for UK-set horror films, so I found this trailer to be quiet effective. The gloomy atmosphere bleeds through the screen, and there are more than a couple of successful jump scares.
Check out the new The Woman in Black 2 trailer after the jump along with some new images and the poster. The film also stars Jeremy Irvine and opens in theaters on January 2, 2015.

Here’s the official synopsis for The Woman in Black 2 Angel of Death:
During the London bombings of World War II, school teachers Eve Parkins (Phoebe Fox) and Jean Hogg (Helen McCrory) lead a group of children in evacuation to Crythin Gifford, a remote village outside of the city. When the group takes up residence at the Eel Marsh House, 40 years after Arthur Kipps (Daniel Radcliffe) investigated the first haunting, Eve soon realizes they are not alone. The longer they stay in the house, the more the awful past of the residence unravels itself and the evil spirit that lurks around them threatens the well-being of the children. With the help of a pilot (Jeremy Irvine), Eve does all that she can to protect the children and discover the truth behind the Woman in Black.
