Comingsoon has posted four clips from John McTeigue’s The Raven. The first clip we have seen before here on Mania. The bottom three are a tad different. The Raven opens April 27th 2012. The thriller will star John Cusack, Luke Evans, Alice Eve, Brendan Gleeson and Oliver Jackson-Cohen. Director McTeigue (V for Vendetta) led the production, based on a screenplay by writers Ben Livingston and Hannah Shakespeare.
Plot Concept: The macabre and lurid tales of Edgar Allan Poe are vividly brought to life - and death – in this stylish, gothic thriller starring John Cusack as the infamous author. When a madman begins committing horrific murders inspired by Poe's darkest works, a young Baltimore detective (Luke Evans) joins forces with Poe in a quest to get inside the killer's mind in order to stop him from making every one of Poe's brutal stories a blood chilling reality. A deadly game of cat and mouse ensues, which escalates when Poe's love (Alice Eve) becomes the next target.
