First Trailer: “House with a Clock In Its Walls”

The first trailer has arrived for Universal Pictures and Amblin Entertainment’s “The House with a Clock in Its Walls” starring Jack Black, Cate Blanchett and Kyle MacLachlan.

Said to be in the vein of the 1980s Amblin classics and based on the beloved John Bellairs novel, the magical adventure follows a ten-year-old boy (Owen Vaccaro) who goes to live with his uncle in a creaky old house with a mysterious tick-tocking heart.

But his new town’s sleepy facade jolts to life with a secret world of warlocks and witches when Lewis accidentally awakens the dead. The project was penned by “Supernatural” creator Eric Kripke and directed by none other than Eli Roth. The film opens Friday September 21st.
