UPDATE: Looks like it's been removed.
It seems like all day, the trailer for Horns
, the dark fantasy flick starring Daniel Radcliffe, directed by Alexandre Aja (High Tension
, Piranha 3D
), and adapted from a seriously amazing novel by Joe Hill, has been popping up on and dropping off of video sites across the web. In his Twitter feed
, Hill himself mused that Lionsgate, the studio putting the flick out, might be trying to keep the trailer under wraps until San Diego Comic Con
, the famed annual genre-orgy-slash-promotiongasm coming up a week from Thursday.
OK, sure. Good luck with that.
We're not sure if they've officially given up or what, but it looks like The AV Club has a stay-put version of the trailer here
. Moody music! Dark under-eye circles! Accusations of terribleness! And, we've gotta say, a nice build that manages not to reveal Radcliffe's titular dome accoutrements until the end. This collection of famous people from myriad fandoms lands right around Halloween.
