Despite the presence of Charlize Theron in the lead and a Gillian Flynn novel as source material, thriller Dark Places slipped largely unnoticed onto VOD and US cinema screens. Can it succeed over here? We’ll find out soon enough, and the movie has a new trailer online.

The plot sees seven-year-old Libby Day witness the murder of her family, seemingly the work of a Satanic cult, and testify against her own brother (Corey Stoll) as the murderer. Fast-forward 25 years and the grown-up Day (Theron) has to face some unpleasant facts about the case. Approached by Nicholas Hoult's vigilante sleuths the Kill Club, she's forced to re-evaluate her original version of events.

Gone Girl it might not be, but this is still a danger-filled tale filled with revelations and protagonists who might not know have all the facts to begin with. Featuring the likes of Chloë Grace Moretz, Christina Hendricks and Drea de Matteo in the cast, Dark Places is out here via Entertainment One in February.
