Scott Derrickson (Sinister, Doctor Strange) is back with The Black Phone, which is headed exclusively to theaters on June 24. The film’s official Dolby Cinema poster has been revealed tonight, and it comes courtesy of Creepy Duck Design! Much like Creepy Duck’s poster for this year’s Scream, this was originally fan-made poster art that has now become official.
There’s a retro feel to Creepy Duck’s take on The Black Phone, spotlighting Ethan Hawke‘s “The Grabber” and bathing him in a sinister crimson red. Check out the poster below!
The Black Phone is an adaptation of Joe Hill‘s short story.
Director Scott Derrickson returns to his terror roots and partners again with the foremost brand in the genre, Blumhouse, with a new horror thriller. Finney Shaw, a shy but clever 13-year-old boy, is abducted by a sadistic killer and trapped in a soundproof basement where screaming is of little use. When a disconnected phone on the wall begins to ring, Finney discovers that he can hear the voices of the killer’s previous victims. And they are dead set on making sure that what happened to them doesn’t happen to Finney.
Starring four-time Oscar nominee Ethan Hawke in the most terrifying role of his career and introducing Mason Thames in his first ever film role, The Black Phone is produced, directed, and co-written by Scott Derrickson, the writer-director of Sinister, The Exorcism of Emily Rose and Marvel’s Doctor Strange.
The film’s screenplay is by Derrickson & C. Robert Cargill (Doctor Strange, Sinister franchise), based on the award-winning short story by Joe Hill from his New York Times bestseller 20th Century Ghosts. The film is produced by Derrickson & Cargill’s Crooked Highway and presented by Universal and Blumhouse. Jason Blum, Scott Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill are producers on the film, which is executive produced by Ryan Turek and Christopher H. Warner.
Madeleine McGraw, Jeremy Davies, and James Ransone also star.
