In the first trailer for Universal's The Invisible Man, Elizabeth Moss' Cecilia Kass is haunted by an abusive ex who has found a way to turn himself invisible.
The trailer picks up as Cecilia escapes from her ex-boyfriend in the dead of night. She makes it into her sister's car, but her respite doesn't last long. He discovers them and smashes the window in an attempt to stop them, but they manage to get away nonetheless.
Later, Cecilia is informed her ex had killed himself and left her five million dollars -- on one condition: "You can't be proved to be mentally incompetent." From there, her life begins to unravel, as strange occurrences prove to be more and more deadly. Soon, she realizes her ex is not only alive, but that he has turned himself invisible and is hellbent on ruining her. She must fight to stay alive, even as everyone around her believes she is losing her mind.
According to the official film synopsis,
Trapped in a violent, controlling relationship with a wealthy and brilliant scientist, Cecilia Kass (Moss) escapes in the dead of night and disappears into hiding, aided by her sister (Harriet Dyer, NBC’s The InBetween), their childhood friend (Aldis Hodge, Straight Outta Compton) and his teenage daughter (Storm Reid, HBO’s Euphoria).
But when Cecilia’s abusive ex (Oliver Jackson-Cohen, Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House) commits suicide and leaves her a generous portion of his vast fortune, Cecilia suspects his death was a hoax. As a series of eerie coincidences turns lethal, threatening the lives of those she loves, Cecilia’s sanity begins to unravel as she desperately tries to prove that she is being hunted by someone nobody can see.

No official release date for The Invisible Man has been announced by Universal, but it is expected to arrive in February 2020.
