The Crow reboot is finally coming to cinemas this June and we now have the first trailer to savour.

After years of development and various behind-the-scenes changes, the "modern reimagining" of the graphic novel by James O'Barr stars Bill Skarsgård and FKA Twigs as Eric Draven and Shelly Webster.

The soulmates are brutally murdered when their dark past catches up with them, before Eric is given the chance to save Shelly by sacrificing himself and seeking merciless revenge on their killers.

You can check out the first trailer for The Crow above.

The Crow was, of course, previously adapted into a cult 1994 movie with Brandon Lee in the lead role. This movie spawned three sequels, but the reboot will ignore any previous movies.

We were treated to the first-look images of The Crow last month when director Rupert Sanders also confirmed that the reboot will make a change from that original movie.

Instead of Eric and Shelly dying in the opening moments of the movie, the reboot will show more of their romance before their untimely deaths.

"What drew me to this was the opportunity to make a dark romance, something that dealt with loss, grief, and the ethereal veil between life and death and reaching through that," he added.

"I grew up listening to Joy Division and the Cure, and this movie is a bit like a Cure song – the beauty of melancholy."

The Crow also stars Danny Huston, Isabella Wei, Laura Birn, Sami Bouajila and Jordan Bolger, with Zach Baylin and William Schneider writing the script for this new take on the graphic novel.

Before The Crow lands in cinemas, we'll see Skarsgård on the big screen in action movie Boy Kills World in which he stars as a deaf-mute orphan who seeks revenge on the people who murdered his family.

The Crow is released in cinemas on June 7.
