This version of the story, very loosely based on H.G. Wells’ premise, casts Moss as Cecilia – a woman who escapes an abusive relationship, but soon finds that her supposedly dead partner seems to still literally be with her wherever she goes, to much disbelief from her friends. Watch the first trailer here.","There are plenty of interesting notes here – not just the use of the Invisible Man as a way to explore the horrors of emotional abuse and gaslighting, but having the Invisible Man not be the main character. In the titular role is _The Haunting Of Hill House_‘s [Oliver Jackson-Cohen](https://www.empireonline.com/people/oliver-jackson-cohen/) – here not playing Wells’ original Griffin, but a tech guy by the name of Adrian who won’t leave Cecilia alone. There are some nice creepy he’s-in-the-room-but-you-can’t-see-him visuals, a pleasing nod to the classic Universal Monsters version with a glimpse of a person in bandages, and a flash of action with kinetic camerawork reminiscent of Whannell’s last film, the under-seen sci-fi-actioner _[Upgrade](https://www.empireonline.com/films/upgrade/)_.","Read our [trailer breakdown with Whannell right here](https://www.empireonline.com/movies/features/invisible-man-trailer-breakdown-leigh-whannell/) – and catch _The Invisible Man_ in UK cinemas from 28 February
