First Trailer: Bill Nighy In “Limehouse Golem”

The first trailer has been released for Juan Carlos Medina’s period horror thriller “The Limehouse Golem”.

Penned by Jane Goldman (“X-Men: First Class,” “Kingsman: The Secret Service”), Bill Nighy stars as Inspector John Kildare who has been assigned the case of a serial killer stalking Victorian London nearly a decade before Jack the Ripper.

He soon meets a young songstress (Olivia Cooke) sentenced to death for the murder of her husband, who may hold the secrets to solving the grisly mystery.

Premiering at Toronto last year to good reviews, Douglas Booth, Sam Reid, and Eddie Marsan also star in the film which opens in the UK on September 1st. No U.S. release date has been set.
