The movie trailer for The Orphan has been released. The first time I saw it, I was immediately reminded me of The Good Son and the upcoming horror film Case 39, though The Orphan seems far darker than Case 67 but gives more away in its trailer. The tone of The Orphan trailer is great though and the main star of the film, Esther (Isabelle Fuhman), seems intimidating, calculating and intelligent beyond her age. She should be interesting to watch, not unlike Anna Paquin in The Piano. The Orphan’s synopsis: “A husband and wife who recently lost their baby adopt a 9-year-old girl who is not nearly as innocent as she claims to be.” Check out the trailer below and leave your thoughts on it. The Orphan is going to be released on July 24, 2009.
