This is the first trailer for Relativity’s period thriller The Raven. The James McTeigue-directed thriller stars John Cusack as Edgar Allan Poe, who joins with a Baltimore detective (Luke Evans) to hunt down a serial killer using Poe’s works as the basis for a string of brutal murders — a pretty cool concept for a movie if executed right. The studio has set a March 9, 2012 release date. Alice Eve and Brendan Gleeson also star.
