First artwork for The Woman In Black sequel

Hammer's sequel to this year's The Woman In Black, The Woman In Black: Angel Of Death, has some new artwork...

Filming hasn't begun yet on Hammer's follow-up to its hugely successful remake of The Woman In Black. However, the film is being shopped over at the American Film Market in the US, and as such, we get to cast our peepers over the first piece of promo artwork for the movie.

There's also the first official synopsis as such for the movie, which reveals in which direction The Woman In Black: Angel Of Death is going. It reads thus:

"Seized by the government and converted into a military mental hospital during World War II, the sudden arrival of disturbed soldiers to Eel Marsh Harsh has awoken its darkest inhabitant. Eve, a beautiful young nurse, is sent to the house to care for the patients but soon realizes she must save them from more than their own demons. Despite Eve’s efforts to stop her, one by one they fall victim to the Woman in Black".

The movie is being directed by Tom Harper, from a script by Jon Croker. We don't have a firm release date as of yet, though. Here's that artwork...

(facepalm) - Why can't people just leave things alone? First film - huge success. Excellent, worthy of it, and congrats to everybody involved. However, this does not equate to "QUICK! Let's make a sequel or sequels, or if that fails, prequels!"

I'm placing bets that the sequel to the sequel will be called: The Woman in Black - Revenge of the Mutant Splat Gore Monster.

Dude, we're talking about Hammer Horror! These are the guys that kept resurrecting Frankenstein and Dracula for various sequels far, far too many times. They were milking ideas for every pennies before Hollywood even considered it. Quite frankly, it wouldn't feel like Hammer had been properly revived unless they produced at least one unnecessary, ill-thought out and probably poor sequel to an excellent film.

Hammer's back!

Indeed - but this is the 21st Century, not the 1960/70s. I don't know - what with the "revitalised" Muppet movies (divided opinion on that), people seem increasingly wanting to live in the past and not look to the future. That may be okay for some, but for me, it's simply not enough.

I feel the same about all current Bond movies - possibly excellent, but it's recycling old material over and over again and adding a few new bits here or there. If that's not satisfactory, they "reboot".

All this money going on sequels and prequels - it's no wonder I've gone off mainstream and looking to indies for inspiration.

So it's a sequel about a group of soldiers being led by a female non-soldier going back to a place which wasn't but is now under Government/big company control?

They should just call it Women in Black, it couldn't get more obvious what they're trying to imitate!

By 'divided opinion' on The Muppets, you mean opinion was divided into you, who seems to hate it so much you have to bring it up in completely unrelated articles, and everyone else, who loved it?

Err.. no. Look elsewhere - there are similar opinions to mine - Den of Geek isn't the only web site reporting news and offering commentary from it's readers. I apologise if you misinterpreted my original comment above as referring to another I made here at DoG.

For crying out loud - not EVERYBODY loves that film. I'm entitled to have a differing opinion, aren't I? This isn't becoming the Daily Mail of fan web sites, I hope. :\

Yeah, The Woman in Black doesn't need a sequel, but it doesn't NOT need a sequel either. It wasn't like the first one was some unquestionable masterpiece that should never be touched.
It was a surprisingly decent little ghost story and, with a bit of luck, this will be too.

Sounds a bit like The Haunted Airman

And enough with the Daily Fail-style appraisals on the comments (although to be fair, this is more of Disqus feature than DoG) - accept people have opinions and bloody deal with it. Contribute to the discussion if you feel that strongly about it - but don't take the lazy arsed clapometer approach.

I don't know why people are complaining about a sequel to this. Have you seen the amount of Dracula films and Frankenstein films Hammer pumped out? It's like a tradition. Besides at least, hopefully, we'll be getting another decently made horror movie and not some other Parashittle Activity. Although they're probably going to make some more of them. Twats that they are.
