Helen Mirren thriller Winchester gets a release date
CBS Films has announced a release date for their upcoming supernatural thriller Winchester, which stars Helen Mirren, Jason Clarke, Sarah Snook and Angus Sampson. The film will be released on Friday, February 23, 2018, two days after Marvel Studios’ Black Panther on February 16, and five days before Legendary’s Pacific Rim: Uprising on February 23.
Inspired by true events, Winchester follows the story of firearm heiress Sarah Winchester (Helen Mirren), who was convinced that she was haunted by the souls killed at the hands of the Winchester Repeating Rifle. After the sudden deaths of her husband and child, she threw herself into the 24-hours a day, seven days a week construction of an enormous mansion designed to keep the evil spirits at bay. But when skeptical San Francisco psychiatrist Eric Price (Jason Clarke) is dispatched to the estate to evaluate her state of mind, he discovers that her obsession may not be so insane after all. The film will take audiences inside the labyrinth-like house that is believed to be one of the most haunted places in the world.
Winchester is written and directed by Michael and Peter Spierig (Predestination, Daybreakers), and produced by Tim McGahan and Brett Tomberlin.
