‘The Invisible Man’ Cast Discusses Black History Month At Premiere – WATCH

*The Invisible Man had it’s red carpet premiere Monday night (02-23-20) at the historic TCL Chinese Theater in Hollywood where the main cast of the movie showed their support for the film and one another.

EURweb correspondent Monique Loveless spoke with Storm Reid and Aldis Hodge about how they’re celebrating their Black History month and taking on the horror genre. While the main character Elizabeth Moss talks about how much fun she had playing her role.

If this title sounds familiar to you, you’re definitely right. The horror flick is a remake of the 1933 film by the same name. That particular film was adapted by H.G Wells‘ novel published in 1897.

Writer and director Leigh Whannell, wanted a more modernized take on the story this time around. Whannell didn’t want to rely on surprising scares and other classic horror tactics to stun audiences. Instead, he decided to take the route of Jordan Peele’s hit movie Us with a psychological and grounded reality.

This 2020 modern take follows Cecilia (Moss) who after escaping an abusive relationship receives news that her ex-boyfriend has committed suicide and leaves her his fortune. But Cecilia doesn’t believe it’s true and tries to prove she’s being hunted by him which no one else can see.

“I got to run around and scream a lot which I feel I don’t get to do on the Handmaid’s Tale. I have to be all quiet,” Moss said excitedly.

While Hodge had a more in-depth reason for being interested in his character.

“This brother is a single father, he’s a cop who is taking care of his daughter. He has a friend in need.” Hodge goes on: “It’s a female friend and he’s not trying to take advantage of that. Keeping it one hundred, it’s a good representation of a man and in my personal opinion a stand-up guy.”

Kudos to his character, as we know that doesn’t happen often.

Make sure to check it out in a theater near you this Friday, Feb. 28.
