Legendary Pictures and Universal Pictures have debuted a disturbing motion poster for the upcoming Crimson Peak, which features Mia Wasikowska’s Edith Cushing offering an ominous warning about this haunted house. The studio has also announced that the second trailer will debut tomorrow, May 13, so be sure to keep your eyes peeled for that. We haven’t seen or heard much since the first Crimsonn Peak trailer debuted back in February, so hopefully tomorrow’s trailer offers plenty of new footage.

When her heart is stolen by a seductive stranger, a young woman is swept away to a house atop a mountain of blood-red clay: a place filled with secrets that will haunt her forever. Between desire and darkness, between mystery and madness, lies the truth behind Crimson Peak. From the imagination of director Guillermo del Toro comes a supernatural mystery starring Mia Wasikowska, Jessica Chastain, Mia Wasikowska and Charlie Hunnam.

The supporting cast is rounded out by Doug Jones, Burn Gorman, Jim Beaver, Leslie Hope, Javier Botet and Kimberly-Sue Murray. Unfortunately, we still have several months until this haunted house thriller hits theaters on October 23, but hopefully it will be well worth the wait. Check out the motion poster below, and be sure to come back tomorrow for the second trailer.

Pike will play Lina Heydrich, an aristocrat who introduced her husband to Nazi ideology, while Wasikowska will play opposite O’Connell as a girl living in occupied Prague.

Since the dawn of cinema, the relationship between director and muse has been one of mutual reliance, forging some of the most beloved, and powerful, relationships in Hollywood history. From Alfred Hitchcock and Tippi Hendren, Woody Allen and Diane Keaton, to Quentin Tarantino and Uma Thurman, many of filmdom’s most brilliant minds have relied upon their on-screen ingénues for that incendiary je ne sais quoi and transformed budding actresses into leading cultural icons. Herewith, 12 upcoming stars with the power to inspire, and the directors with the cinematic aptitude to make them shine.

Mia Wasikowska & David Cronenberg
Mia Wasikowska, 23, gained worldwide prominence in 2010 after winning the much-coveted titular role in Tim Burton’s $1 billion-grossing adaptation of Alice in Wonderland (2010). David Cronenberg, oft cited as the King of Venereal Horror, gained renown for exploring the boundaries of bodily transformations and disease. With Wasikowska’s ghostly looks and quiet, contemplative persona, she’s an oddly perfect match for Cronenberg’s macabre sensibility. She stars in his latest film, Maps to the Stars (2014), alongside Robert Pattinson. The film’s subject, Hollywood’s perverse culture of fame, seems apropos: Pattinson, who is currently a Cronenberg favorite—having starred in his prior feature Cosmopolis (2012)—was thrust into the universe of cinema superstardom following his title role in the blockbuster Twilight series; we can only imagine that Cronenberg’s masterful eye will transform Wasikowska to equal measure.

On the heels of Venice’s opening-night film “Gravity” comes another dramatic tale of female isolation and empowerment in one of the most inhospitable environments imaginable. Adapted from Robyn Davidson’s memoir of the same name, “Tracks” is a vastly engaging chronicle of the author’s 1700-mile journey across the Australian Outback in 1977 with her dog Diggity, four ornery camels and infinite clouds of dust, beginning in Alice Springs and ending at the Indian Ocean. Along the way, she naturally encounters all manner of danger, from wild bull camels (Australia has 50,000 of the feral beasts roaming its interior) to her own physical and emotional limitations.

Julia Roberts was one of many actresses attached to “Tracks” during its long, difficult journey to the big screen, but it’s Mia Wasikowska who impressively rises to the challenge of portraying Davidson, an unremarkable 27-year-old who mostly remains an enigma throughout the story. She has baggage – her mother hanged herself when she was nine – but Davidson’s reasons for making this extreme, solitary trek remain as vague and indeterminate as they likely were to her at the time. “People ask me and I say, ‘Why not?'” says Wasikowska at the start. No need to go much deeper than that, and the film doesn’t beyond outlining Davidson’s unquenchable thirst for solitude. Curran (who also directed “The Painted Veil” and “Stone” although this is superior to both) keeps the psychoanalysis to a minimum, which some may find frustrating.

Early sequences chart Davidson’s chaotic, protracted acquisition of three camels (which become four after one gives birth), and her initial encounters with Rick Smolan (Adam Driver), a manic National Geographic photographer who helps land her a commission with the magazine to fund the journey, only to become a frequent irritant (as well as part-time lover) as he crops up now and then to photograph Robyn on her journey through some of the bleakest, most unforgiving terrain on the planet.
