Do you hear the ticking? Watch the first trailer for THE HOUSE WITH A CLOCK IN ITS WALLS

Do you hear the ticking? Based on the beloved children’s classic written by John Bellairs and illustrated by Edward Gorey, the Eli Roth-directed magical adventure stars Jack Black, Cate Blanchett, and Owen Vaccaro.

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 28th.
