If there’s one thing we can count on during the Super Bowl, it’s the massive influx of trailers and TV spots for new film and TV shows that are coming out soon, and this year was no exception. Amidst the plethora of spots for Fox’s own projects like ’24: Legacy’ and ‘Legion,’ there were also some cool new promos for Gore Verbinski’s (‘Pirates of the Caribbean,’ ‘The Ring’) new film ‘A Cure For Wellness.’
You can check out both of the new teasers below, which help to shed some light on the new film, which we know from already released material tells the story of Dane Dehaan’s character, a young executive sent to find his boss from a health spa in the Swiss Alps, who arrives only to encounter a Wellness Center that is not exactly what it seems. Soon enough, in the way these things seem to happen in classic creepy horror movies, it looks like the man gets sucked into the world of the Wellness Center and is not allowed to escape, and with Gore Verbinski directing, every shot looks just eerie, weird, and off-kilter enough to pique my interest – and I’m not usually one to head out and spend money on these types of movies in theaters.
Check out the new teasers for yourself below, and then share your thoughts on the new film in the comments below!
And here’s the synopsis:
An ambitious young executive is sent to retrieve his company’s CEO from an idyllic but mysterious “wellness center” at a remote location in the Swiss Alps. He soon suspects that the spa’s miraculous treatments are not what they seem. When he begins to unravel its terrifying secrets, his sanity is tested, as he finds himself diagnosed with the same curious illness that keeps all the guests here longing for the cure. From Gore Verbinski, the visionary director of THE RING, comes the new psychological thriller, A CURE FOR WELLNESS.
