Trailer For ‘Winchester: The House That Ghosts Built’ Starring Helen Mirren Released
  |  @   |  

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.

You can read a synopsis for the movie and check out the teaser trailer below.

When Steve Jobs was alive, it was hard to imagine a world without the inspirational inventor introducing us to one of his latest Apple product, yet somehow the tech giant’s legacy is still going strong four years after his passing. Jobs wasn’t exactly open about his life, thus making it hard to figure out the man behind the machines. Director Danny Boyle‘s Steve Jobs, from Aaron Sorkin outstanding screenplay adapted from the 2011 biography, as well as his own interviews, gives the world a way to get to know who Steve Jobs is, and how he saw the world.

Steve Jobs isn’t your traditional biopic. It’s broken into three major events in Jobs’ life all taking place 30 minutes in real time before the product launches of LISA, the NeXT, and iMac. And what makes it all captivating is the fact that in those three 30-minute pre-launches, we get to see a man who is clearly the smartest person in the room reveal himself to be a vulnerable yet headstrong man with a clear vision of bringing technology to the masses while creating a legacy that only a few could ever dream of.
