Partial trailer for John Carpenter’s THE WARD hits

Apparently, superhero films aren’t the only projects that can get pre-teaser trailer trailers released.

In the vein of an announcement teaser, Bleeding Cool has just dug up a UK “trailer intro” for the upcoming John Carpenter film, THE WARD.

The first new film from the horror legend since 2001’s GHOSTS OF MARS, the film stars Amber Heard, Jared Harris and Lyndsy Fonseca, and while most of the time I’d simply hold back until the full trailer is released, this is definitely an interesting case.

Now, while word on the film coming out of its TIFF 2010 premiere was a bit mixed (Chase HATED it), I still have massively high hopes for this project.  Heard is a perfect actress to play this type of derivative horror role, and while the plot doesn’t quite seem to be all that ground breaking, I do have really high hopes for this project.  Heard’s performance is one of the few things that seem to be consistently praised when discussing the film, so while it’s currently without a US release date, I don’t see that staying that way for all that much longer.

What do you think about this trailer-ish piece of promotional material?
