Published

The idea of being invisible has intrigued us for more than 100 years. HG Wells released his book The Invisible Man in 1897 and we’ve been obsessed with the idea ever since. Leave it to Hollywood (and the incredible actress Elisabeth Moss) to find a new way to have us on the edge of our seats.

I’ll be there for this one!

The Invisible man hits Theaters February 28 https://www.TheInvisibleManMovie.com
