An official trailer has been released for The Turning, an upcoming haunted house thriller from DreamWorks Pictures and Universal Pictures.

For more than 100 years, a deeply haunting tale has been passed down to terrify audiences. Next January, DreamWorks Picturesâ€™ The Turning takes us to a mysterious estate in the Maine countryside, where newly appointed nanny Kate is charged with the care of two disturbed orphans, Flora and Miles. Quickly though, she discovers that both the children and the house are harboring dark secrets and things may not be as they appear.
Inspired by Henry Jamesâ€™ landmark novel, the haunted-house thriller is directed by spellbinding visualist Floria Sigismondi (The Runaways, Huluâ€™s The Handmaidâ€™s Tale) and stars Mackenzie Davis (Terminator: Dark Fate, The Martian), Finn Wolfhard (It, Netflixâ€™s Stranger Things), newcomer Brooklynn Prince (The Florida Project) and Joely Richardson (Red Sparrow, The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo).
From writers Chad Hayes & Carey W. Hayes (The Conjuring), The Turning is produced by Scott Bernstein (Straight Outta Compton, Ride Along 2) and Roy Lee (It, The Lego Movie). Universal will release The Turning domestically and in select international territories.
James’ The Turn of the Screw has been adapted numerous times over the years in film and television, and this movie is one of two current adaptations. As we found out back in February, Netflix ordered a follow-up to The Haunting of Hill House titled The Haunting of Bly Manor which will also be based on James’ tale.
Unfortunately you won’t be able to include this one in your Halloween season viewing this year. The Turning is set to be released in theaters on January 24, 2020.
Keeping the lights on won’t keep you safe. Watch the trailer for #TheTurningMovie, in theaters January 24.
