Scott Stewart (Priest, Legion) returns to the big screen this weekend with Dark Skies, another supernatural film that will see Stewart moving into the supernatural horror genre that has been doing so well in recent years.
We saw the first trailer land back in November, giving us a good look at what could well be the #1 film at the box office this weekend. And now Momentum have released the hi-res Dark Skies UK quad poster.
“From the producers of Paranormal Activity, Insidious, and Sinister comes Dark Skies: a supernatural thriller that follows a young family living in the suburbs.
As husband and wife Daniel and Lacey Barret witness an escalating series of disturbing events involving their family, their safe and peaceful home quickly unravels. When it becomes clear that the Barret family is being targeted by an unimaginably terrifying and deadly force, Daniel and Lacey take matters in their own hands to solve the mystery of what is after their family.”
Keri Russell takes the lead here, starring alongside Josh Hamilton, J.K. Simmons, Annie Thurman, Dakota Goyo, and Trevor St. John.
Stewart is directing from his own script, with Jason Blum (Paranormal Activity) producing alongside executive producers Brian Kavanaugh-Jones (Insidious) and Charles Layton (Sinister).
Blum has of course had a brilliant track record when it comes to films in this niche territory, and there’s a very good chance that Dark Skies will continue his successes. The box office is looking fairly light this weekend, ahead of the big blockbusters opening at the start of March. So we could well be looking at a winner here.
Dark Skies will be released in the US this Friday, 22nd February, and will be released in the UK on 5th April. Here’s the latest poster to help get you in the mood. And in case you need any reminding, you can catch the latest UK trailer here.
