The Jurassic World director's latest flick hits theaters in June.

Focus Features has revealed the first trailer for The Book of Henry. The film comes from Colin Trevorrow, and stars Lee Pace, Naomi Watts, Jacob Tremblay, and Jaeden Lieberher.

Sometimes things are not always what they seem, especially in the small suburban town where the Carpenter family lives. Single suburban mother Susan (Naomi Watts) works as a waitress at a diner, alongside feisty friend Sheila (Sarah Silverman). Her younger son Peter (Jacob Tremblay) is a playful 8-year-old. Taking care of everyone and everything is Susan’s older son Henry (Jaeden Lieberher), age 11. Protector to his adoring younger brother and tireless supporter of his often self-doubting mother – and, through investments, of the family – Henry blazes through the days like a comet. Susan discovers that the family next door, which includes Henry’s kind classmate Christina (Maddie Ziegler), has a dangerous secret – and that Henry has devised a surprising plan to help. As his brainstormed rescue plan for Christina takes shape in thrilling ways, Susan finds herself at the center of it.

The film is written by Gregg Hurwitz (V) and is produced by Carla Hacken, Jenette Kahn, Sidney Kimmel, and Adam Richman. In addition, Sue Baden-Powel, John Penotti, and Jim Tauber are all on board as executive producers. Director Colin Trevorrow previously helmed the 2015 blockbuster Jurassic World and the 2012 indie flick Safety Not Guaranteed. His next project will be directing Star Wars: Episode IX.

The Book of Henry will be released in theaters on June 16. Other recently released film trailers include Marvel and Sony's Spider-Man: Homecoming and New Line Cinema's It.
