The first trailer for The Crow, the new remake of James O'Barr's cult graphic novel starring Bill Skarsgård. After spending over 15 years in the hell of film production, the new remake of The Crow is revealed in the first official trailer. Based on the graphic novel of the same name by James O'Barr, the story revolves around a man who is murdered along with his girlfriend and comes back to life with some supernatural powers. The man thus becomes a vigilante seeking revenge.

Bill Skarsgård takes the place of the legendary Brandon Lee to bring the intriguing character named Eric Draven back to the screen. The IT actor plays a very different version of the character, with a decidedly more modern touch. The trailer gives a great first look at the new adaptation, introducing the new version of Eric Draven and the character's girlfriend, Shelly (FKA Twigs). The trailer also highlights the intense violence present in the film, with the protagonist not holding back in his quest for revenge.

The remake of The Crow stars Bill Skarsgård as Eric Draven, a goth rock musician who is brutally murdered along with his girlfriend Shelly (FKA Twigs), only to return from the dead with the help of a mysterious crow to seek revenge. Rupert Sanders directs the film from a screenplay by Zach Baylin and Will Schneider, rebooting the film franchise launched with the 1994 feature starring the late Brandon Lee, who died during production. The Crow will fly in theaters on June 7, 2024.
