In his first foray on film post-Harry Potter, Daniel Radcliffe stars in
The Woman in Black, a supernatural thriller.
The first trailer, released August 17, offers a glimpse at the period horror tale set at the Eel Marsh mansion, with footage that reveals a haunting with animated toys and objects.
Based on a 1983 novel by Susan Hill, it is the story of a young lawyer who travels to a small English village and encounters the ghost of a scorned woman. The stage play version has played London since 1987.
Radcliffe's character uncovers tragic secrets when he discovers that local children have died mysteriously.
Ciaran Hinds ( Harry Potter) costars with a screenplay by Jane Goldman, who co-wrote X-Men: First Class and Kick-Ass.
The film opens in North America on February 3, 2012, the UK on February 10 and other countries to follow.
