THE WOMAN IN BLACK: ANGEL OF DEATH Trailer Goes to Dark Places

     August 21, 2014

The Woman in Black opened surprisingly big back in 2012, scoring $20.9 million during its opening weekend and then going on to lock in a grand total of $127.7 million worldwide.  With a $15 million production budget, the film clearly earned itself a sequel, but what’s another Woman in Black without Daniel Radcliffe?  Helen McCrory and Jeremy Irvine are certainly quality talent as well, but how can you expect them to draw the same crowd?  Then again, Radcliffe’s latest, What If, wound up being the fourth-lowest nationwide debut of the year.

Anyway, the reason we’re talking The Woman in Black is because a teaser for the sequel, The Woman in Black: Angel of Death, just dropped, and it’s a little underwhelming.  Hit the jump to check out The Woman in Black: Angel of Death trailer for yourself.

Yup, that’s it.  There’s no concrete scare or creepy idea to take with you, there’s nothing that sparks memories of the first film and not a single clear shot of the film’s stars.  It’s just a whole lot of darkness.  Hopefully the footage will be a bit brighter and lighter on the big screen for the production designer’s sake because in this teaser, you can barely see any of her work.

At the moment, The Woman in Black: Angel of Death does not have a domestic release date, but it is due to hit theaters in the UK on February 13, 2015.

Here’s the official synopsis for the film:

As bombs rain down on London during the Blitz of World War II, a group of school children are evacuated with Eve, their young and beautiful schoolteacher, to the safety of the English countryside. Taken to an old and empty estate, cut-off by a causeway from the mainland, they are left at Eel Marsh House.

One by one the children begin acting strangely and Eve, with the help of local military commander Harry, discovers that the group has awoken a dark force even more terrifying and evil than the city’s air raids. Eve must now confront her own demons to save the children and escape the wrath of The Woman in Black.
