THE BOOK OF HENRY Gets a Trailer and New Poster

Focus Features has released the first trailer for The Book of Henry, which looks like it mixes uplifting drama with dark thriller elements. Directed by Colin Trevorrow (Jurassic World), the film follows a family where a genius 11-year-old acts as the patriarch. When they discover something sinister going on next door, they investigate and try to help a young girl in peril. There’s also a new poster that sells the film as a throwback Amblin kid adventure film.

The Book of Henry stars Naomi Watts, Jaeden Lieberher, Jacob Tremblay, Maddie Ziegler, Sarah Silverman, and Dean Norris. It will be in theaters on June 16th.

Sometimes things are not always what they seem, especially in the small suburban town where the Carpenter family lives. Single suburban mother Susan (Naomi Watts) works as a waitress at a diner, alongside feisty friend Sheila (Sarah Silverman). Her younger son Peter (Jacob Tremblay) is a playful 8-year-old. Taking care of everyone and everything is Susan’s older son Henry (Jaeden Lieberher), age 11. Protector to his adoring younger brother and tireless supporter of his often self-doubting mother – and, through investments, of the family – Henry blazes through the days like a comet. Susan discovers that the family next door, which includes Henry’s kind classmate Christina (Maddie Ziegler), has a dangerous secret – and that Henry has devised a surprising plan to help. As his brainstormed rescue plan for Christina takes shape in thrilling ways, Susan finds herself at the center of it.
