Take a trip to the other side with the latest trailer and poster for Disney’s latest attempt to bring the world of Haunted house on the big screen. Courtesy of Walt Disney Studios, the latest look at this theme park ride adaptation puts the stellar cast at its center and teases the fun and dread that will be on display. Check out the recently released trailer and poster for Haunted house below…
Inspired by the classic Disney theme park attraction, Haunted house follows a woman and her son who enlist a ragtag team of so-called spiritual experts to help rid their home of supernatural squatters. This so-called motley crew takes center stage in the latest poster for Haunted house…and look, they might be a bit outdated.
Directed by award-winning filmmaker Justin Simien (Dear Whites), Haunted Mansion features an all-star cast including Rosario Dawson (Clerk III, The Mandalorian) as Gabbie, Chase Dillon (The more they falllisten)) as Travis, Gabbie’s son; Owen Wilson (Wedding Crashers, Lokilisten)) as Kent, the priest; LaKeith Stanfield (At loggerheads, sorry to bother you) as Ben Matthias, the paranormal expert; Tiffany Haddish (Girls Trip, the unbearable weight of massive talent) as Harriet, the seer; Danny DeVito (Philadelphia is always sunnylisten) as Bruce, a college history teacher; and Jamie Lee Curtis (Halloween, everywhere at once) as Madame Leota.
The likes of Winona Ryder, Dan Levy and Hasan Minhaj will also be in attendance, with Jared Leto set to star as The Hatbox Ghost.
Haunted Mansion will work hard not to repeat past mistakes
As many may already know, this isn’t the first time Walt Disney Studios has attempted to transform the Haunted house ride in a cinematic classic. This first effort was attempted twenty years ago and features comedic legend Eddie Murphy alongside Terence Stamp, Wallace Shawn, Marsha Thomason and Jennifer Tilly. The film, titled The haunted mansion, once again finds a group trapped inside the titular spooky abode. Unfortunately, the critical response has been far more terrifying than the film and currently sits at a rotten 14% on review aggregator site Rotten Tomatoes.
But Haunted house director Justin Simien is fearless. Far from it, in fact. The filmmaker turned to the original attempt to figure out what not to do. As he explains, “[We looked at Eddie Murphy’s Haunted Mansion for how we could] go sideways. We got to the point where we were obsessed with the angle you first see the mansion from when you enter the ride at Disneyland, when we see it through the doors, and when we see the pillars. This angle has to hit. That’s how specific we were. When you first glide through the dining room and see the waltz dancers, this angle had to be the right one, because it’s where you gasp during the ride.
Haunted house is scheduled to be released in the United States on July 28, 2023 by Walt Disney Studios Motion Pictures.
