The first trailer for Dark Skies has landed, promising thrills, spills and alien visitations.

What starts out as a simple ‘haunted house’ tale turns into something very different, with the brief trailer throwing in a couple of suggestions towards the end as to what may be going on.

Directed by Scott Charles Stewart and from the producers of Paranormal Activity, Insidious and Sinister, Dark Skies stars the likes of Keri Russell, Josh Hamilton and JK Simmons.

Dark Skies is due to hit UK cinemas on 5 April.
