On behalf of CBS Films, we are beyond excited to share the First Look at Academy Award-winner Helen Mirren in the upcoming supernatural thriller WINCHESTER slated to be released in Spring of 2018. The film, directed and written by Michael Spierig & Peter Spierig, stars Helen Mirren as the eccentric Sarah Winchester, along with Sarah Snook and Angus Sampson.
Inspired by true events, WINCHESTER follows the true 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 mind that is believed to be one of the most haunted places in the world.
