A First Look At The Invisible Man
I’m that guy who doesn’t like to watch trailers online. I prefer to wait and catch them at the theater, the way it was done in the olden days. It can be more frustrating that way, sitting through trailer after trailer for silly movies that you have no interest in seeing, waiting and hoping to see the one you’re excited about. But when it happens, it’s magical. You just can’t get that by watching a trailer on the computer or on a smartphone. Sometimes I have to bite the bullet, though, and watch one I’d prefer to wait to see in the theater because it’s a requirement of my job. That may prove the case with the forthcoming THE INVISIBLE MAN. I hope the trailer won’t be released online before it’s released to theaters, but we’ll have to wait to see. We *can*, however, get a first glimpse of the new film thanks to these photos from ENTERTAINMENT WEEKLY. So what do those photos depict? See for yourselves, right here!
I love the photo above, with the handprint. That’s poster material, right there. And the second photo. Does it look like the heroine is being strangled? Does to me.
Everything looks good so far, and everything I’ve been hearing sounds good, too, with one possible exception. Writer/director Leigh Whannell told EW: “The image of the Invisible Man in the floating trench coat and the floating sunglasses is one that is clearly etched into the public consciousness. I wanted to kind of get away from that and make something that was really modern…” Okay. Modern is good. But we’d better get at least one scene with the bandages and the goggles!
