Just a day after reports of Charlize Theron calling off her engagement spread, the official US trailer of her upcoming thriller, 'Dark Places' was dropped.
The U.S. trailer of the thriller based on the novel of same name by Gillian Flynn, best-selling author of Gone Girl, is gripping. After the insanely hit psycho film, Gone Girl, we have high expectations from this thriller.
Charlize Theron is back as a strong woman who tries to get over her troubled childhood with the murder of her mother and two sisters as she tries to find out the truth. She will be seen yet again with Nicholas Hoult after co-starring in Mad Max: Fury Road.
The film centers around Libby (Theron), a woman who, as an eight-year-old girl, named her brother (Corey Stoll) in court as the person who murdered her mother and two sisters on their rural farm in Kansas.
Unfortunately now, the money Libby received from well-wishers and supporters has all but dried up, and she is looking for a way to make more.
She agrees to appear for a group of true-crime aficionados and is surprised to learn that most of these members in the group do not believe her brother is the murderer of her family members. This makes her question her decision and re-think about what she thought she saw that night.
Lyle, one of the crime-obsessed club members (Nicholas Hoult) helps Libby find out if her brother is really the murderer she named in the court.
Dark Places also stars Chlöe Grace Moretz, Christina Hendricks and Tye Sheridan. The film was directed by Gilles Paquet-Brenner. The thriller will be released in U.S. theaters on August 7th, 2015.
Meanwhile, DirecTV announced on Thursday that viewers can watch "Dark Places" on DirecTV Cinema from Aug 6, days before it's theatrical release. A24 will begin the theatrical roll-out on Aug 7.
