In the trailer, Hawke first appears in white face paint and a top hat, struggling with falling grocery bags beside a completely unsuspicious beat-up black van. He lures the film’s young lead (played by Mason Thames) with tales of being a part-time magician, and soon enough, viewers are then transported into the aforementioned murder basement. The trailer teases Thames being tortured by Hawke, who dons terrifying masks and taunts him with stories of previous victims and his own childhood. A young neighborhood girl is also burdened with visions of Thames captured, and she attempts to help lead the police to him before it’s too late. Jeremy Davies, E. Roger Mitchell, Madeleine McGraw and James Ransone co-star. Derrickson adapted the screenplay with C. Robert Cargill. “The Black Phone” is adapted from a short story by Joe Hill.
The newest Blumhouse horror film is here, and it’ll give you nightmares. The first trailer for Scott Derrickson’s “The Black Phone,” which will be released in theatres on February 4, has been released by Universal Pictures. The film stars Ethan Hawke as an abducted teenager who is held captive in a cellar splattered with the blood of half a dozen previous slain children. A dark, vintage telephone with a severed cord is in the cellar with him. The phone, however, rings late at night with calls from the murdered youngsters, aiding the boy in his escape plan.
In a pre-taped speech for the exhibitors at CinemaCon in August, Hawke said that Blumhouse founder Jason Blum had previously called “Sinister” the “scariest movie he’d ever worked on,” but “The Black Phone” has now taken its place.
