The Dark is Rising trailer online
There's a trailer online for The Dark is Rising, another children's fantasy series of novels that is making its way to the big screen. This one stars such names as Ian McShane and Christopher Eccleston.
Susan Cooper's novel The Dark is Rising (Amazon.co.uk / Amazon.com) tells the story of Will Stanton who discovers at just eleven years old that he's the last of a group of immortals going by the name of the Old Ones who are dedicated to fighting the growing dark forces which threaten the world.
The trailer, which is over the page, looks okay, although nothing really leaps out and grabs me. The interest for me is Eccleston being bad and McShane. Is there anyone who has read the book that can comment on how they feel the trailer looks?
