Additional details on The Witches UK trailer

The UK version is a bit darker than the US version and provides justice to the original movie. The Warner Bros UK fans have now got a chance to check out the UK trailer of this thriller movie.

The movie wants the fan to dive deeper into the world of witches and go for a roller coaster ride. The trailer is family-friendly, but that doesn’t mean it would be all comedic and light. Rather it would be a lot spookier and dark than the US version which also coincides with Halloween. So, guys gear up for a spookier Halloween.

Despite the difference in the tone of the US and the UK trailer, the best thing is the revamped version is directed by the infamous director Zemeckis.

He is famous for his spectacular movies such as Back to the Future trilogy, Forrest Gump, etc, where he has proven multiple times regarding his ability to narrate stories and keep the audience hooked.

With a huge track record of giving back to back smashing hits, we expect this remake to be another international hit among audiences of all ages.

Initially, when the movie premiered in 1990, people didn’t actually appreciate the movie, but later on, the movie became quite famous owing to amazing adaptation and being a cult classic.

With the current pandemic going on, we don’t hope for a theatrical release, so we hope Zemeckis would receive the successes through the OTT platforms.
