CBS Films has released a teaser trailer for Winchester: The House That Ghosts Built, which stars Academy Award winner Helen Mirren. Also starring is Jason Clarke and Sarah Snook.
The movie follows Sarah Winchester (Mirren), heiress to gunmaker the Winchester Repeating Arms Company. When the company’s founder, Oliver Winchester, died in 1880, the company was passed down to his son, William Wirt Winchester. When William died just a few months later of tuberculosis, ownership then passed to his wife, Sarah. This made her one of the wealthiest women on the planet at the time. But she feared that these deaths were caused by the vengeful spirits of those who had been killed by the firearms the company produced, and this fear led her to build the infamous Winchester Mystery House, a massive mansion unlike any other, nonsensically designed in hopes of confusing any spirits who might be after her.

Peter Berg‘s strength is in his ability to tell a gripping story, and give it a cinematic feel. The intense military drama Lone Survivor and the powerful oil-rig disaster Deepwater Horizon, were all fine examples of dramatized based on true-life stories that captured the world’s attention. Come next year, he will do the same with Patriots Day, a film that chronicles the events that transpired before, during, and after the Boston Marathon bombing that took place in April 2013.
I remember working at my desk on the day that the Boston Marathon bombings occurred, and all anyone could do is look to the internet and social media to see what was happening.
Now we get to at least see a dramatized version of that day in Peter Berg‘s Patriots Day, starring Mark Wahlberg, J.K. Simmons, John Goodman, Kevin Bacon, and Michelle Monaghan. The first trailer for the movie has been released, and you can check it out below.
