Charlize Theron has a meanness inside her in this trailer for DARK PLACES

1 min read


You could say that Charlize Theron is on a… furious-a run in Hollywood at the moment, after acting the crap (and most of the dialogue) out of Mad Max: Fury Road. And next up for her is Dark Places, an adaptation of Gone Girl writer Gillian Flynn’s novel that sees Theron teaming once again with her chrome and shiny Mad Max co-star Nicholas Hoult (witness!).

And if that star power wasn’t enough of a lure, joining them are Chloe Grace Moretz, Corey Stoll, Tye Sheridan and Christina Hendricks in an aptly named thriller that seemingly really goes to some *cough* dark places *cough*, as you can see for yourself in the international trailer below.

25 years after testifying against her brother as the person responsible for massacring her entire family, a haunted woman (Charlize Theron) is approached by a secret society that specializes in complex, unsolved cases.

Director Gilles Paquet-Brenner also adapted Flynn’s novel into the screenplay. Dark Places is scheduled for release on August 7, 2015.
