‘Haunted Mansion’ Trailer: Rosario Dawson, LaKeith Stanfield, Owen Wilson, And Jared Leto Star In Disney’s Paranormal Comedy

With Disney’s release of Haunted Mansion only a couple of weeks away, a new trailer has dropped revealing new footage of the horror-comedy based on the popular amusement park ride. It’s like they’re afraid you won’t pay to see it, perhaps fearing a similar number as what Jungle Cruise got a few years ago, or Tomorrowland before it. Making movies based on attractions at Disney has been a mixed bag, with Pirates of the Caribbean cream of the crop.

LaKeith Stanfield, Tiffany Haddish, Owen Wilson, Danny DeVito, Rosario Dawson, Chase W. Dillon, Winona Ryder, and Daniel Levy star, with Jamie Lee Curtis as Madame Leota and Jared Leto as Hatbox Ghost.  Dear White People‘s Justin Simien directs from a script by Spy writer Katie Dippold.

Here’s the synopsis: Inspired by the classic theme park attraction, “Haunted Mansion” is about a woman and her son who enlist a motley crew of so-called spiritual experts to help rid their home of supernatural squatters.

Haunted Mansion opens in theaters on July 28th.
