Sting trailer - not the ex-Police singer but a super spider with bite!

Landing in our inbox is the Sting trailer, not a biopic about the Geordie warbling ex-Police  frontman but rather a film about a carnivorous spider. Now the last time we saw something this creepy on screen was the Prince Andrew interview and there are moments in the trailer that will have arachnophobes hiding behind the sofa. We have had spider films before with 1990’s Arachnophobia being a great Saturday night at the movies which was a huge hit and yet never got a sequel despite being produced by Spielberg but this dramatically ups the ante

On a stormy night in New York City, a mysterious egg falls from the sky and smashes through the window of a rundown apartment building. From it a strange little spider emerges and is discovered by Charlotte, a rebellious, lonely 12-year-old girl obsessed with comic books. She names it Sting. As Charlotte’s fascination increases, so does Sting’s insatiable appetite. Growing at a monstrous rate, neighbours and their pets start to go missing. Soon, Charlotte’s family realise they have become the prey of a ravenous supersized arachnid with a taste for human flesh… and Charlotte is the only one who knows how to stop it.

Directed by Kiah Roache-Turner and starring House Of The Dragon’s Ryan Corr and Furiosa: A Mad Max Saga’s Alyla Browne, STING is set to bring audiences’ arachnophobia to horrifying life with hyper-realistic practical effects created by five-time Academy Award® Winner Weta studio. Weta are world-renowned for their acclaimed visual effect work on The Lord of The Rings trilogy and The Hobbit, as well as The Hunger Games sagas, Wonder WomanAvatar, and many others.
