Warner Bros. Pictures is sharing the trailer for the upcoming horror-thriller film The Watchers, featuring Dakota Fanning. Per The WrapThe Watchers is based on the novel of the same name by A. M. Shine, written and directed by Ishana Night Shyamalan and produced by her father, filmmaker M. Night Shyamalan (‘The Sixth Sense’, ‘Signs’).

Dakota Fanning portrays a 28-year-old artist named Mina who gets stranded in an expansive, untouched forest in western Ireland along with her pet bird. Soon, she starts hearing menacing noises and is ushered into a bunker by a kindly older woman (Olwen Fouéré). There, she meets two more people (Georgina Campbell and Oliver Finnegan), who tell her that they are being watched by otherworldly beings just outside the bunker walls. Is there any way to get out alive?  A film synopsis reads: “When Mina finds shelter, she unknowingly becomes trapped alongside three strangers who are watched and stalked by mysterious creatures each night. You can’t see them, but they see everything.”
