The Forest

Following a tease earlier this week, Gramercy Pictures has now released (via MTV) the full first The Forest trailer, which you can watch in the player below. The supernatural thriller, starring Natalie Dormer (“Game of Thrones,” The Hunger Games) and directed by Jason Zada, is based on an original idea by David S. Goyer and was filmed on location in Tokyo, Japan and in the areas surrounding the legendary Aokigahara forest at the base of Mt. Fuji.

The Forest tells the story of a young American woman who goes in search of her twin sister, who has mysteriously disappeared. Despite everyone’s warnings to “stay on the path,” Sara enters the forest determined to discover the truth about her sister’s fate, only to be confronted by the angry and tormented souls of the dead who prey on anyone who wanders into the forest.

Taylor Kinney also stars in the horror thriller, which was scripted by Sarah Cornwell and Nick Antosca. It is produced by Lava Bear Films and Goyer, under his Phantom Four banner. Len Blavatnik, Aviv Giladi and Lawrence Bender serve as executive producers for AI Film. Tory Metzger, President of Lava Bear, oversaw the production.

The Forest is one of two upcoming films to be set in the Aokigahara forest. Gus Van Sant’s latest, Sea of Trees. Starring Naomi Watts, Ken Watanabe and Matthew McConaughey, Sea of Trees was picked up for distribution by Lionsgate earlier this year, however it is currently without an announced release date.
