The Limehouse Golem Official Trailer

Lionsgate UK has released its upcoming psychological thriller film, The Limehouse Golem. The story predates Jack the Ripper notorious serial killing. Here is the official synopsis for The Limehouse Golem :

Set on the unforgiving, squalid streets of Victorian London in 1880, our tale begins in the baroque, grandiose music hall where the capital’s most renowned performer Dan Leno (Douglas Booth-Jupiter Ascending, Noah) takes to the stage. The whimsical thespian performs a monologue, informing his dedicated audience of the ghastly fate of a young woman who had once adorned this very stage, his dear friend Elizabeth Cree (Olivia Cooke-Ouija, Bates Motel); for the beguiling songstress is facing up to her forthcoming death by hanging, having been accused of murdering her husband John Cree (Sam Reid- ’71, The Railway Man). Lizzie’s death seems inevitable, until Detective Inspector John Kildare (Bill Nighy-Harry Potter and the Deadly Hallow, Pirates of the Caribbean : Dead Man’s Chest) is assigned to the case of the Limehouse Golem – a nefarious, calculating serial killer, murdering innocent, unconnected victims, leaving behind barely identifiable corpses – and his distinctive, trademark ‘M’.  All is not what it seems and everyone is a suspect and everyone has a secret.

The film is directed by Juan Carlos Medina(Painless, Rage) and scripted by Jane Goldman(Kingsman: The Secret Service, X-Men: The First Class, X-Men: Days of Future Past). The Limehouse Golem will open in UK on September 1st. No release date for US market yet. Check out the trailer below.
