The Raven Synopsis
The macabre and lurid tales of Edgar Allan Poe are vividly brought to life - and death – in this stylish, gothic thriller starring John Cusack as the infamous author. When a madman begins committing horrific murders inspired by Poe’s darkest works, a young Baltimore detective (Luke Evans) joins forces with Poe in a quest to get inside the killer’s mind in order to stop him from making every one of Poe’s brutal stories a blood chilling reality.  A deadly game of cat and mouse ensues, which escalates when Poe’s love (Alice Eve, She’s Out of My League) becomes the next target. Intrepid Pictures’ The Raven also stars Brendan Gleeson (In Bruges) and Oliver Jackson-Cohen (Faster).

The Raven is part period drama and part thriller, with a little bit of horror sprinkled in for good measure. The film, which stars Edger Allen Poe, or at least John Cusack as the literary master himself, only managed to pull in around $26 million worldwide. Luckily, if you missed it in theaters, The Raven will be hitting Blu-ray and DVD on October 9.

The Raven Director James McTeigue On The Darkness Of Edgar Allan Poe The Raven Director James McTeigue On The Darkness Of Edgar Allan Poe
Even by writer standards, the life of Edgar Allan Poe was a life of trouble and woe. At just about every turn in his life he had to deal with conflict and struggle, be it his battle with substance abuse to his love life, which involved marrying his 13-year-old cousin and then losing her to tuberculosis. He was a troubled man who let his dark world enter his writing, and that was just perfect for director James McTeigue to look back on while helming The Raven.

It's a good thing that James McTeigue's The Raven is no longer going up against Andrew Stanton's John Carter on March 9th, because if marketing were equitable to box office, the Edgar Allan Poe story would be buried in the dust. In the past year, while we've seen a poster, a trailer and a few images from The Raven, we have gotten multiple posters, behind the scenes photos, stills, trailers and even concept art for John Carter.

First Trailer For The Raven Starring John Cusack First Trailer For The Raven Starring John Cusack
Over the course of his long writing career, Edgar Allan Poe wrote some pretty grisly stories. There was "The Pit and the Pendulum," in which a man is strapped to a table under a slowly-lowering swinging blade; "The Tell Tale Heart," which was about a murderer tortured by the sound of a beating organ; "The Murders In The Rue Morgue," in which is the tale of an orangutan who brutally killed two women; and many, many others.

In James McTeigue's The Raven, Edgar Allan Poe, played by John Cusack, must race to find out the identity of a serial killer that is employing elements from Poe's stories into each one of their murders. But while the writer is being psychologically tortured, seeing his most horrific works of fiction come to life, his beau, played by Alice Eve, is going through something even worse: the killer has buried her alive.

Comic Con 2011: Live Blogging The Raven And Haywire Panels Comic Con 2011: Live Blogging The Raven And Haywire Panels
Hall H has been home to some strange films over the last few years; films that most wouldn’t think would have a place during an event called Comic Con. Then again, the entire expo has shifted gears so much in recent years that we shouldn’t really be super surprised by anything anymore. I guess that’s why a movie with John Cusack playing Edgar Allan Poe and an action film by Steven Soderbergh are playing here this year.

The Raven's First Poster Is Written In Blood The Raven's First Poster Is Written In Blood
John Cusack is playing Edgar Allan Poe and, much as I loved Hot Tub Time Machine, at this point in his career it’s probably a good idea. The movie he’s doing it in is called The Raven and it’s a mystery-thriller in which the famously bummed out poet is enlisted by the police to hunt down a serial killer.

First Official Look At John Cusack In The Raven First Official Look At John Cusack In The Raven
Though I'm not entirely sure why, I'm actually looking forward to James McTeigue's The Raven. Admittedly it's kind of strange to take one of history's greatest writers, Edgar Allan Poe, and turn him into a detective, but it could be fun and has a solid cast lined up in John Cusack, Alice Eve, Luke Evans and Brendan Gleeson. Back in November, some on-set photographers managed to get a shot of Cusack in costume, but today the first official photo has been released.
