Colin Trevorrow’s The Book of Henry Trailer


After directing the fourth highest grossing movie of all time with Jurassic World, we have to assume that Colin Trevorrow could have chosen just about anything he wanted for his next project. But rather than return to the stress of helming another massive blockbuster, he opted for something much smaller and more intimate. The Book of Henry takes place in a small suburban town where single mom Susan (Naomi Watts) works as a waitress and lives with her sons Peter (Jacob Tremblay) and Henry (Jaeden Lieberher). Henry is something of a genius, but when he discovers that the girl who lives next door has a dark secret, he comes up with a clever plan to help her out. This seems to be one of those movies that is only getting made based on the strength of the script so it is hard to tell from the trailer exactly what to expect (ironically, it does seem to give a lot away). Still, this seems like it could be a nice alternative if you need a break from all the blockbusters hitting theatres this summer. The Book of Henry hits select theatres on June 16th; check out the trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.

    That poster… Is that the guy who did all the Back to the Future and Indiana Jones posters as well?

    Edit: Drew Struzan is his name, don’t know if it’s him but it seems like it’s inspired by him at least.

    Yeah I don’t think he did it since he’s mostly retired now. But it’s definitely made to look like his work.

    The guy is a legend… Star Wars, Bladerunner, Harry Potter, E.T. , The Thing… you name it. Hope he got paid a pretty penny at least.

    Yeah it sure looks like an homage to Drew Struzan for sure. I don’t think this is him though. The illustration does look like his work but the fine details don’t which leaves me to believe it isn’t him. Either way love Drew Struzan work…still a huge fan of his work!

    This looks interesting considering Colin Trevorrow’s work on JW was so uninspiring. I know the movie made mega money, but was that due to him being an excellent director or that the general public was just hungry for dinosaurs?

  • Tommy

    I think Watts following the kid’s book instead of talking to him directly like earlier in the trailer points to him dying.
