The Crow 

Lionsgate dropped a sneak peek at their upcoming reboot of The Crow. Vanity Fair released an exclusive first look at the film — read on to check them out.

The Crow was originally a 1989 comic book series created by James O’Barr. Its first adaptation came out in 1994 and starred Brandon Lee, who passed away after he was accidentally shot during filming. The film was a modest success at the time but has since gained cult status over the years.

The remake stars Bill Skarsgård as Eric Draven, aka the Crow, alongside FKA twigs as his girlfriend, Shelly Webster. Also joining the cast are Danny Huston and Laura Birn. Rupert Sanders, director of Ghost in the Shell and Snow White and the Hunstman, directed the film.

Synopsis 

Lionsgate’s official description of The Crow reads:

“Soulmates Eric Draven and Shelly Webster are brutally murdered when the demons of her dark past catch up with them. Given the chance to save his true love by sacrificing himself, Eric sets out to seek merciless revenge on their killers, traversing the worlds of the living and the dead to put the wrong things right.”

The images feature Skarsgård covered in tattoos with the titular character’s familiar face makeup and leather coat. It’s a modernized look compared to the original, one that Sanders told Vanity Fair was inspired by “me in the ’90s when we were squat-raving in London, [mixed with some modern influences] like Post Malone and Lil Peep.”
