The Invisible Man Trailer: Elisabeth Moss Stars in the Sci-Fi Horror Remake

The dark and risky new trailer comes with a tagline: "What you can't see can hurt you" - see it below. In this re-imagining, the titular Invisible Man is a wealthy and brilliant scientist played by Haunting of Hill House alum Oliver Jackson-Cohen.

But surely, Universal still has the same shared-universe goals that sparked the creation of the Dark Universe in the first place. The first plot details have been revealed for the upcoming Invisible Man film and it is not what you are expecting. Producer Jason Blum and his Blumhouse Productions were given the Universal monsters to apply his low-priced horror approach to, as opposed to the flashier, expensive, action-adventure take that Cruise's Mummy had gone with. And that's exactly what writer-director Leigh Whannell wanted.

Elisabeth Moss is fighting for her life - and her sanity - in the new trailer for Universal's unsettling sci-fi thriller The Invisible Man. We will not spoil it, but here's the standard premise: In the middle of the night, Elisabeth Moss sneaks absent from her abundant scientist partner (Oliver Jackson-Cohen) simply because he's an abusive maniac.

The original "Invisible Man" from 1933 was based on a novel by H.G Wells, the author best known for "War of the Worlds" and the OG "fake news" fiasco that ensued.

She eventually escapes with the help of her friends and family, later finding out her ex committed suicide. She soon insists that his death is a hoax and that he is merely tormenting her like never before. That classic flick was directed by James Whale and is considered a seminal work of the era. He also directed "Insidious: Chapter 3".

That franchise, however, stalled after the lukewarm critical and commercial response to The Mummy in 2017, which starred Tom Cruise and was meant to launch the series. Whether or not that leads to a connected universe remains to be seen. Though, the studio seems to be taking it one step at a time now, which is probably for the best.

You'll be able to see The Invisible Man on February 28, 2020. Be sure to check out the new trailer for yourself.
