Colin Trevorrow Opens ‘The Book of Henry’ in First Trailer

Written by on March 30, 2017 


After a handful of indie directors were handed the keys to a major franchise, this year will see the release of a few films that find them headed back to more grounded territory. In between two such films from The Amazing Spider-Man‘s Marc Webb, Jurassic World director Colin Trevorrow will release The Book of Henry, and now the first trailer has landed.

Scripted by Gregg Hurwitz, the film follows two brothers and their adventures when they discover the family next door has a secret. Judging from this first trailer (and, certainly, first poster), Trevorrow is clearly once again influenced by Steven Spielberg, but hopefully this time it goes beyond basic homage. Starring Naomi Watts, Jaeden Lieberher, Jacob Tremblay, Sarah Silverman, Lee Pace, Maddie Ziegler, and Dean Norris, check out the trailer below.

Sometimes things are not always what they seem, especially in the small suburban town where the Carpenter family lives. Single suburban mother Susan Carpenter (Naomi Watts) works as a waitress at a diner, alongside feisty family friend Sheila (Sarah Silverman). Her younger son Peter (Jacob Tremblay) is a playful 8-year-old. Taking care of everyone and everything in his own unique way is Susan’s older son Henry (Jaeden Lieberher), age 11. Protector to his adoring younger brother and tireless supporter of his often self-doubting mother – and, through investments, of the family as a whole – Henry blazes through the days like a comet. Susan discovers that the family next door, which includes Henry’s kind classmate Christina (Maddie Ziegler), has a dangerous secret – and that Henry has devised a surprising plan to help. As his brainstormed rescue plan for Christina takes shape in thrilling ways, Susan finds herself at the center of it.


The Book of Henry opens on June 16.
