With Hammer Films producing what is set to be their biggest hit since re-forming, it was only a matter of time until we were treated to one of their vintage style posters. You know the sorts, those wonderfully painted posters from the good old days, and since The Woman in Black will be taking us back to those good old days of Gothic style ghostly horrors, then what better time to showcase some great artwork again.
Behold the new poster for James Watkins’ The Woman in Black!!!

James Watkins (Eden Lake) transforms Daniel Radcliffe in what looks like one incredible performance, and he will be supported by Janet McTeer, Ciaran Hinds, Roger Allam and Sophie Stuckey. The film is based on the chilling novel written by Susan Hill, and Jane Goldman has written the screenplay.
Based on the classic ghost story, THE WOMAN IN BLACK tells the tale of Arthur Kipps (Daniel Radcliffe), a lawyer who is forced to leave his young son and travel to a remote village to attend to the affairs of the recently deceased owner of Eel Marsh House.
Working alone in the old mansion, Kipps begins to uncover the town’s tragic and tortured secrets and his fears escalate when he discovers that local children have been dying under mysterious circumstances. When those closest to him become threatened by the vengeful woman in black, Kipps must find a way to break the cycle of terror.
The Woman in Black arrives in UK cinemas 10th February 2012.
