To whet your appetite for its trailer premiere tomorrow (on Poe's death day), two new images from THE RAVEN have debuted online.
THE RAVEN is James McTeigue's (V FOR VENDETTA) yarn of a fictionalized Edgar Allan Poe (John Cusack) helping to solve murders based on his works. The official synopsis reads:
"When a mother and daughter are found brutally murdered in 19th century Baltimore, Detective Emmett Fields (Luke Evans) makes a startling discovery: the crime resembles a fictional murder described in gory detail in the local newspaper—part of a collection of stories penned by struggling writer and social pariah Edgar Allan Poe. But even as Poe is questioned by police, another grisly murder occurs, also inspired by a popular Poe story."
"Realizing a serial killer is on the loose using Poe’s writings as the backdrop for his bloody rampage, Fields enlists the author’s help in stopping the attacks. But when it appears someone close to Poe may become the murderer’s next victim, the stakes become even higher and the inventor of the detective story calls on his own powers of deduction to try to solve the case before it’s too late."
Tomorrow, being the 162nd anniversary of the Poe's death will see not only a trailer, but McTeigue and Evans take part in a tribute at the legendary and influential author's gravesite. If the trailer is that which played San Diego Comic-Con this past July, expect a popcorny thriller that looks to be possibly trying too hard to incorporate contemporary trends in its presentation, but could be a whole lot of grisly fun.
