We have some news about the movie The House with a Clock in Its Walls. A new trailer and the first poster featuring Cate Blanchett has been released by Universal Pictures. Take a look!
In the tradition of Amblin classics where fantastical events occur in the most unexpected places, Jack Black and two-time Academy Award® winner Cate Blanchett star in The House with a Clock in Its Walls, from Amblin Entertainment. The magical adventure tells the spine-tingling tale of 10-year-old Lewis (Owen Vaccaro) who goes to live with his uncle in a creaky old house with a mysterious tick-tocking heart. But his new town’s sleepy façade jolts to life with a secret world of warlocks and witches when Lewis accidentally awakens the dead.
Based on the beloved children’s classic written by John Bellairs and illustrated by Edward Gorey, The House with a Clock in Its Walls is directed by master frightener Eli Roth and written by Eric Kripke (creator of TV’s Supernatural). Co-starring Kyle MacLachlan, Colleen Camp, Renée Elise Goldsberry, Vanessa Anne Williams and Sunny Suljic, it is produced by Mythology Entertainment’s Brad Fischer (Shutter Island) and James Vanderbilt (Zodiac), as well as Kripke.

UNHCR’s Goodwill Ambassadors Cate Blanchett and David Morrissey, with actors from the National Theatre, performed songs and poetry on the subject of refuge to an audience of MPs, peers and refugees. […]
The event marked the first time that the monologue from Act 2, Scene 4 of Shakespeare’s ‘Book of Sir Thomas More’, written in 1593, had been performed in Parliament. Blanchett read the extraordinary speech given by Henry VIII’s chancellor, Sir Thomas More, as he sought to quell race riots in London on May Day, 1517.
“Should so much come too short of your great trespass
As but to banish you, whither would you go?
What country, by the nature of your error,
Should give you harbour?”
‘The Book of Sir Thomas More’, William Shakespeare
“It’s a call for compassion and empathy towards the plight of immigrants and refugees,” Blanchett said. “The sentiment and call for empathy and compassion is as relevant now as it was then when this speech was written.” […]
‘Moving Stories’ producer Emma Manton joined the actors Blanchett, Firth, Morrissey, Theo James Ruth Kearney and Lord Alf Dubs for a recital of Toksvig’s rhythmic poem ‘What They Took With Them’, based on the items that refugees told UNHCR took with them when they fled their homes.
