I’m on a total Daniel Craig roll this week; why not keep it going? And yes, dude is looking mighty fine with his lovely movie/real life wife Rachel Weisz and beautiful neighbor Naomi Watts standing by (just in case something should happen to Rachel?). But I am a little confused by this trailer. It starts out all Amityville Horror-ish; nice family moves into haunted house where other family was murdered…blah blah blah. And you think, oh—been there done that, but at least this family is super hot. Then, the trailer goes into over-explanation mode, possibly even ruining the entire plot. Why? Is it because they were afraid we wouldn’t be interested enough to see the movie if it looked like an Amity retread? Yes, the reveal is more interesting, but haven’t they given it all away? Or have they? I’m hoping there’s something else up Jim Sheriden’s (The Boxer, In the Name of the Father, My Left Foot) sleeve.
Have a look. And while you’re in there, please tell me if the cast is trying to be American or not, because the accents are all over the place.
Here’s the film’s second poster:
I prefer the first:
Dream House also stars Marton Csokas (The Lord of the Rings: Return of the King, the Fellowship of the Ring, The Bourne Supremacy) and Jonathan Potts (Devil, Breach) and hits theaters September 30, 2011.
