Universal released the first official trailer for Elisabeth Moss’ The Invisible Man.
After Tom Cruise’s The Mummy debuted to poor reviews and underperformed at the box office, Universal reassessed its plans for a shared cinematic universe of it and opted to focus on filmmaker-driven projects for studio’s classic movie monsters. The decision to table the concept of a shared universe resulted in Universal moving forward with a new take on The Invisible Man from Upgrade director Leigh Whannell that stars Elisabeth Moss as the lead protagonist.
Due to be released in theaters early next year, The Invisible Man will offer a contemporary take on the classic concept and now Universal has released the first official trailer for the reboot. The preview offers audiences a glimpse at the terror Elisabeth Moss’ Cecilia Kass will face as she tries to convince others that her abusive ex-husband faked his death and found a way to make himself invisible to continue haunting her family.
