Nancy Drew is heading back to the big screen, and now we've got the first trailer.
The movie is titled Nancy Drew and the Hidden Staircase and features Sophia Lillis in the lead role. As we see in the trailer, Drew is the resident detective of her small town, but despite not being as active as the big city, this town does have its secrets, starting with a supposedly haunted house.
For Nancy and her friends, their mission is to discover what is really going on in the house, and how it might be linked to others in the town who don't want them snooping around. We get a glimpse of a chase sequence pitting Nancy's skateboard against a mysterious black car, and we're hoping she's got some tricks up her sleeve to make it out of that encounter alive.
You can check out the new trailer above.
