Trailer: Things Are Quite Different In THE HOUSE WITH A CLOCK IN ITS WALLS July 2, 2018 This September, you’re invited somewhere timeless. New look at Jack Black and Cate Blanchett in Eli Roth’s ‘The House with a Clock in Its Walls.’ In the tradition of Amblin classics where fantastical events occur in the most unexpected places, Jack Black and Cate Blanchett star in THE HOUSE WITH A CLOCK IN ITS WALLS. The magical adventure tells the spine-tingling tale of 10-year-old Lewis (Owen Vaccaro) who goes to live with his uncle in a creaky old house with a mysterious tick-tocking heart. But his new town’s sleepy façade jolts to life with a secret world of warlocks and witches when Lewis accidentally awakens the dead. Irish release date is September 21.
