The Alejandro Amenábar-directed drama Regression has (finally!) released its English trailer. Our first look into the film was the Spanish teaser trailer, which amped up the spookiness with eerie visuals and an ominous metronome. The trailer gives us some insight on Emma Watson's character Angela Gray.
Emma has shown us a wide-ranging set of acting skills since Potter. She's taken on everything from being the spoiled rich kid in Sophia Coppola's Bling Ring, a part in the biblical adaptation of Noah under Darren Aronofsky, a free-spirited girl in teen drama in Perks of Being a Wallflower and of course, a role as a future Disney princess. Regression will serve as the Brit's foray into thrillers and looks to be her most chilling film yet.
In the film, Emma's character accuses her father of commiting an "unspeakable crime" of which he cannot remember. Ethan Hawke plays a detective looking into the case and The 100's Devon Bostick plays her brother, Roy. The film feels in the vein of fellow cult drama Martha Marcy May Marlene. It's got us really psyched... and also a little scared.
We anticipate nothing less than a powerful performance from the young actress. It's exciting to see her take a detour from book adaptations. We cannot wait to see what she does next!
