Trailer Roundup: The Secret Garden and In The Tall Grass

'Tis the season of movie trailers! Two noteworthy ones have just dropped; one for Frances Hodgson Burnett's 1911 classic The Secret Garden, and one for In The Tall Grass, the spooky collaborative novella by father and son Stephen King and Joe Hill. 

The Secret Garden is being directed by Mark Munden (The Crimson Petal and the White, Black Sails, Utopia) and produced by David Heyman (Harry Potter, Paddington, Gravity). It stars Colin Firth, Dixie Egerickx, Edan Hayhurst and Jemma Powell among others. It's set for release in the first quarter of 2020. Check out the synposis and trailer below! 

THE SECRET GARDEN tells the story of Mary Lennox (Dixie Egerickx, Genius, The Little Stranger and A Royal Winter), a prickly and unloved 10-year-old girl, born in India to wealthy British parents. When they suddenly die, she is sent back to England to live with her uncle, Archibald Craven (Academy Award® and BAFTA-winner Colin Firth – A Single Man, The King’s Speech, Kingsman: The Golden Circle, Bridget Jones’s Baby) on his remote country estate deep in the Yorkshire moors. There, she begins to uncover many family secrets, particularly after meeting her sickly cousin Colin (Edan Hayhurst – Genius, There She Goes), who has been shut away in a wing of the house.

Together, these two damaged, slightly misfit children heal each other through their discovery of a wondrous secret garden, lost in the grounds of Misselthwaite Manor. A magical place of adventure that will change their lives forever.

Netflix is spearheading the adaptation of Stephen King and Joe Hill's 2012 novella In The Tall Grass. It's directed by notable horror-ish director Vincenzo Natali (Cube, Splice) and stars Patrick Wilson, Laysla De Oliveira, Rachel Wilson and Harrison Gilbertson. Thankfully there's not long to wait for this one; it's dropping on the 4th of October! Check out the synopsis and trailer below: 

Based on the novella by Stephen King and Joe Hill, when siblings Becky and Cal hear the cries of a young boy lost within a field of tall grass, they venture in to rescue him, only to become ensnared themselves by a sinister force that quickly disorients and separates them. Cut off from the world and unable to escape the field’s tightening grip, they soon discover that the only thing worse than getting lost is being found. Written and directed by Vincenzo Natali.
