Slender Man Draws More Characters Down into the Depths with this Second Trailer!

Related Posts Plugin for WordPress, Blogger...
The first trailer for Slender Man released earlier this year, in January. Since then, the film's scheduled May release has been pushed back to August. A bit of controversy has surrounded this film and the characters therein. In 2014, a knife attack took place, involving three girls. The two attackers were inspired by the character Slender Man and attempted to sacrifice their victim to this creepy pasta character. Families were not happy that a film was being made, based on the character. Less potentially fatal, the producers were also unhappy with the film's change in release date and have been shopping the film around to other distributors, besides Sony Entertainment (Slash Film). Most recently, a lawsuit has been started by Sony against Phame Factory, over their film Flay (The Wrap). Sony alleges that Flay is based on the character Slender Man, which Sony currently holds the rights to? With all of these controversies aside, the latest trailer for Slender Man brings much more footage to the screen, below.

Slender Man hosts an experienced cast, with the film directed by Sylvain White ("Sleepy Hollow"). The cast includes Annalise Basso (Ouija: Origin of Evil), Jaz Sinclair (Paper Towns), Joey King (The Conjuring) and Alex Fitzalan. Most of this cast can be seen in this second trailer, which shows some of the villain's special powers, including the ability to use tree roots to trap characters.

The latest theatrical release, for Slender Man, is August 10th. On this date, the film will see a wide theatrical release, through Sony Pictures Entertainment. This is a Mythology Entertainment and Madhouse Entertainment production. And, the latest release materials, for this controversial film, are hosted below!
