Universal Pictures has unleashed a cool Super Bowl spot for its upcoming The Invisible Man. In this new story of a woman, who is played by Elisabeth Moss, is overwhelmed and driven to crazy by her abusive ex… who is invisible.
I’m very curious to see how this film going to be. I actually like the jacked-up concept for the story and loved the original movie as well. The movie was written and directed by Leigh Whannell and it’s defined as being a “terrifying modern tale of obsession inspired by Universal’s classic monster character.”
Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy and brilliant scientist, Cecilia Kass (Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding, aided by her sister (Harriet Dyer, NBC’s The InBetween), their childhood friend (Aldis Hodge, Straight Outta Compton) and his teenage daughter (Storm Reid, HBO’s Euphoria).
But when Cecilia’s abusive ex (Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House) commits suicide and leaves her a generous portion of his vast fortune, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia’s sanity begins to unravel as she desperately tries to prove that she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.
Whannell said in the previous interview: “I wanted to…make something that was really modern, really grounded, or as grounded as you can be when you’re dealing with a film called The Invisible Man. Just something that was really tense and scary in a way The Invisible Man hasn’t been before.” He also explains that this is Moss’s film: “Elisabeth Moss is the centerpiece of the film, and she’s in pretty much every scene. I feel like, if you’re going to hang an entire film on someone’s shoulders, you need an actor as good as Lizzie.”
The Invisible Man will hit theaters on February 28, 2020.
