The Pale Blue Eye new clip has been released, starring Christian Bale. The story is about a young cadet the world would come to know as Edgar Allan Poe and a series of murders that took place at the United States Military Academy, West Point, in 1830. Bale portrays retired detective Augustus Landor, tasked with studying those murders.
The movie was directed by Scott Cooper, and it’s based on Louis Bayard’s 2006 Gothic thriller novel of the same name. Harry Melling stars alongside Bale as Edgar Allan Poe.
West Point, 1830. In the early hours of a gray winter morning, a cadet is found dead. But after the body arrives at the morgue, tragedy becomes savagery when it’s discovered that the young man’s heart has been skillfully removed. Fearing irreparable damage to the fledgling military academy, its leaders turn to a local detective, Augustus Landor (Bale), to solve the murder. Stymied by the cadets’ code of silence, Landor enlists the help of one of their own to pursue the case, an eccentric cadet with a disdain for the rigors of the military and a penchant for poetry—a young man named Edgar Allan Poe.
The Pale Blue Eye will release in select theaters now, and streaming on Netflix on January 6, 2023.
