‘The Book of Henry’ Trailer Takes A Quick Dark Turn


This story in ‘The Book of Henry’ completely changes halfway through the trailer.

When the trailer starts, you think to yourself oh, this story is about a single mom (Naomi Watts) raising her young son Henry (Jaeden Lieberher) who happens to be a boy genius. He has trouble interacting with other kids, and he seems to have his life more together than his mom.  He even has a whimsical hideaway with an invention that frosts cupcakes. Then, a little less than halfway through the trailer (about 1 minute in), things change.

We meet their neighbors, young Christina (Maddie Ziegler) and her stepfather Glenn Sickleman (Dean Norris). Henry knows there is something wrong, but going to the police isn’t an option when Glenn is the police commissioner. They are going to have to take matters into their own hands in order to possibly save Christina’s life.

Talk about an emotional rollercoaster.
