[Trailer] 'The Empty Man' Brings a New Urban Legend to Theaters Next Week

The first night, you hear him. The second night, you see him. The third night, he finds you.

With just a few days to go until its October 23rd theatrical debut, 20th Century Studios have released the trailer for The Empty Man, a supernatural horror film based on the popular series of Boom! Studios graphic novels.

Looking similar to films like My Soul to Take, The Bye Bye Man and Candyman, the trailer for The Empty Man certainly features some strong horror vibes and interesting imagery, but we're worried that only a week of promotion may not be enough to draw the attention the film needs to be a box office success, even with Halloween right around the corner.

Regardless, if The Empty Man appears to be of any interest to you, you can grab your tickets today.

In the film, "After a group of teens from a small Midwestern town begin to mysteriously disappear, the locals believe it is the work of an urban legend known as The Empty Man. As a retired cop investigates and struggles to make sense of the stories, he discovers a secretive group and their attempts to summon a horrific, mystical entity, and soon his life—and the lives of those close to him—are in grave danger."

Written and directed by David Prior and based on the graphic novel by Cullen Bunn, The Empty Man stars James Badge Dale, Marin Ireland, Stephen Root, Ron Canada, Robert Aramayo, Joel Courtney and Sasha Frolova.

The film is produced by Ross Richie and Stephen Christy.
