Anne Hathaway leads an all-star cast in the reboot of the
terrifying classic children's movie.
Prepare to have your childish nightmares reimagined all over again, as 'The Witches' trailer has landed online. Starring Anne Hathaway, Octavia Spencer, Stanley Tucci and the voice of Chris Rock, Warner Bros and HBO Max have given us our first glance at the actors in action.
Based on the 1983 Roald Dahl book of the same name, and inspired by the 1990 movie version starring a terrifying Angelica Huston as the Grand High Witch, in our first-look here we see Anne Hathaway play the role. Will she live up to such high expectations? We hope so.
The screenplay this time around has been written by Robert Zemeckis and Kenya Barris ('Black-ish', 'Shaft') and Oscar winner Guillermo del Toro ('The Shape of Water'). Del Toro, Jack Rapke, del Toro, and Alfonso Cuarón also produced this new interpretation of the book.
Here's 'The Witches' trailer to get you in the Halloween-y mood on this Friday afternoon.
'The Witches' begins streaming over in the US on HBO Max this October 22.
We're awaiting confirmation on when the movie will be available to Irish audiences, but it may get a theatrical release here very soon.
