Dream House Poster and Trailer

Universal Pictures have released a creepy poster and an effective, yet insanely revealing, new trailer for the suspense thriller Dream House.

The story has successful publisher Will Atenton (Daniel Craig) quitting his job in New York to relocate his wife, Libby (Rachel Weisz), and two girls to a quaint New England town. They soon discover that their new home was once the scene of a crime, where a mother and her children were murdered. Everyone believes that the one responsible for their deaths was the husband who survived. When Will investigates the tragedy, his only lead comes from a neighbour, Ann Paterson (Naomi Watts). Together they attempt to find out who murdered the family in Will’s Dream House.

The new poster is very intriguing, and looking closely it appears that there’s a lot more going on here. Could it be that there are bodies behind that wall? The trailer has an unsettling tone to it, and is incredibly spoilerific! Unless there’s an extra twist hidden in the last reel, it manages to give away the whole film (note how Will Atenton’s hair changes after he ‘finds’ the man he’s looking for). The opening and closing narration also suggests that Will most likely knows what happened.

Apple HD downloads for the trailer are available here, but if the film is something you’re really looking forward to, you might want to avoid watching it. 

So what do you think is really going on here? Is there a bigger mystery, or does the trailer explain too much?

Directed by Jim Sheridan, Dream House has no UK release date yet, but opens in the US on September 30th.
