Due to hit US cinemas on September 30th comes Jim Sheridan’s Dream House. The movie has been in development for a long time now, which is why the poster probably looks a bit, well, old. I must say I am not too keen on the poster, its a bit daft, but the story and stars more than make up for it! Forgetting Daniel Craig, for the minute, I’m more interested in the female stars, Naomi Watts and Rachel Weisz. If I were asked who were the more gorgeous actresses in the world, both these fine looking ladies would rank near the top of my list. In fact, I’ve had a bit of a ‘thing’ for Naomi Watts for years, so to see them both in a horror is too good to be true. If the film turns out to be crap, I don’t really care as I’ll happily sit through this for those two reasons alone. To prove my point, you will find two images of the female stars after the poster and an image from the film so please, enjoy them! Here’s the plot details and hopefully a UK release date will be with us soon:
Successful publisher Will Atenton (Craig) quit a high power job in Manhattan to relocate his wife, Libby (Weisz), and two girls to a quaint New England town. But as they settle into their new life, they discover their perfect home was the murder scene of a mother and her children. And the entire city believes it was at the hands of the husband who survived.
When Will investigates, he’s not sure if he’s starting to see ghosts or if the tragic story is just hitting too close to home. His only clues come from Ann Paterson (Watts), a mysterious neighbor who knew those who were shot. And as Will and Ann piece together the haunting puzzle, they must find out who murdered the family in Will’s dream house before he returns to kill again.“
