When you have ghosts, children, and a giant old school, chances are it’s going to be scary. I just checked out the new trailer for ‘The Awakening‘ and its definitely worth checking out.
Set in London in 1921, Florence Cathcart (Rebecca Hall), author of the popular book “Seeing Through Ghosts,” has devoted her career to exposing claims of the supernatural as nothing but hoaxes. She’s a ghosthunter, but essential continues to prove that the ghosts aren’t real. Haunted by the recent death of her fiance, she is approached by Robert Mallory (Dominic West) to investigate the recent death of a student at the all-boys boarding school where he teaches. At the school, the boys claim to be seeing the boy’s ghost around. She decides to take the case.
At first, it all seems like a simple schoolboy prank, but as she gets deeper into her investigation, she is starting to realize that science doesn’t have the answers to explain what’s happening around her. Looks spooky! The film hits theaters in North America in August (it is already out in other places). Check out the trailer below.
