Daniel Radcliffe in first “Woman In Black” trailer
By Sean O’Connell
Hollywoodnews.com: Daniel Radcliffe prepares to put his Harry Potter character in the past. The young actor, who has been associated with the boy wizard for a decade, is ready to move on to different roles. Up first is a ghostly adaptation of Susan Hill’s period novel, and we have the first look at a trailer.
In the film, Radcliffe plays Arthur Kipps, an attorney sent to the countryside to organize the papers of a recently deceased woman. What he finds, though, is the vengeful spirit of an angry woman who feels like she has been scorned.
Here’s the trailer, which was posted on Yahoo Movies:
It’s an effective teaser, using a nursery rhyme and traditional haunted house imagery to prepare audiences for the frights that are in store. Naturally, we’re curious to see what Radcliffe can do outside of J.K. Rowling’s realm. But if any young actor has the potential to break free from the “Harry Potter” legacy and establish a lengthy career on their own, it’s Radcliffe.
