The House with a Clock in its Walls – Trailer 1 – Jack Black

The House with a Clock in its Walls The House with a Clock in its Walls centres around young lad Lewis Barnavelt (Owen Vaccaro) who, after losing his parents, is sent to Michigan to live with his uncle Jonathan (Jack Black).

He discovers the man is a warlock, and enters a world of magic and sorcery, but this power is not limited to good people: there’s Isaac Izard (Kyle MacLachlan), an evil wizard who wanted to cause the Apocalypse so that he could see what happened afterwards. To do this, he constructed a magical clock with black magic, as long as it exists it will keep ticking, counting down to doomsday.

He died before he could finish the clock, but he hid the clock in his house, where Uncle Jonathan now lives. Now Lewis and Jonathan must find the clock before it’s too late, and before Isaac’s wife, Selena, gets to it.

This film is clearly aimed at children so while it’ll reach its target market, it’s not something I’ll be rushing to see at the cinema.

However, what’s really surprising is that this is a children’s film directed by Eli Roth!

The House with a Clock in its Walls is released in the UK on September 28th.
