The new international (UK) trailer for Daniel Radcliffe‘s first movie since “Harry Potter,” The Woman in Black, has arrived. The horror movie is based on a 1983 novel and features Radcliffe as an attorney named Arthur Kipps, a young lawyer who travels to a remote village where he soon discovers the ghostly spectre known as the Woman in Black. Despite warnings from the locals (oh, them and their warnings), Radcliffe searches for the identity of the Woman in Black and what it is she truly wants.

As he works alone in the client’s isolated house, Kipps begins to uncover tragic secrets, his unease growing when he glimpses a mysterious woman dressed only in black. Receiving only silence from the locals, Kipps is forced to uncover the true identity of the Woman in Black on his own, leading to a desperate race against time when he discovers her true intent.
