It’s not every day you get to see a new horror film.
And that’s exactly what happened on Tuesday when the first trailer for “Penny Darker” hit the Internet.
The film, which was directed by James Gunn, stars Amy Adams and Billy Crudup, and stars Tom Hiddleston, who won a Golden Globe for best actor for his role in “Guardians of the Galaxy.”
It’s about a young woman who falls in love with a mysterious man who promises to save her from the world, but then goes on a journey to save the world from itself.
The trailer, which debuted during a live broadcast of “The Late Late Show with James Corden,” was accompanied by the voice of J.K. Simmons, who plays Penny’s brother.
He’s played by David Harbour, who starred in “The Hobbit” and “Pirates of the Caribbean: Dead Men Tell No Tales.”
“I had to get on a plane and make the plane,” Harbour said, speaking with a laugh during the trailer.
“It was a big one.”
The trailer also featured the voice over of Peter Jackson, who said, “It’s a very emotional film.”
“Penny,” which was produced by David Fincher, also features Adam Driver, who is playing a man who wants to save Penny from the evil Penny Dreadful, but the two are soon faced with the terrifying reality that the world will never end.
In a news conference following the trailer’s release, Disney Chairman Bob Iger said the film was inspired by the events of “Punch-Drunk Love,” a 1997 film that was about a woman who goes to see her lover’s wedding.
“It’s about love and loss, and what happens when you lose someone,” Iger told reporters.
“And so it’s a story about loss.
It’s a film about loss and regret and anger and loss and grief.”
Disney’s new “Pineapple Express” has been a huge success, and Iger, who recently returned from the Cannes Film Festival, is optimistic about the future.
“I think it’s going to be a really successful film,” he said.
“I don’t think it will have a major impact on the box office, but we’re going to have a very, very big hit in the box offices.”
Pineapples, the Disney movie about a tree that helps the human race survive a deadly virus, grossed $5.2 million on its opening weekend and is slated to open on July 13.
