The Alone in the Dark voice cast is a big part of the remake, as the two playable protagonists of Edward and Emily are played by David Harbour (Stranger Things, Black Widow) and Jodie Comer (Killing Eve, Free Guy) respectively.

Alone in the Dark trailers

The first trailer for Alone in the Dark was the official reveal trailer that launched on August 12, 2022. It featured a mix of cutscenes and gameplay without UI elements, setting up the tone, atmosphere, setting, and look of the game. 

A notable part of the trailer was the doom jazz soundtrack in the background, which slowly grew in noise and became more unstable as the trailer went on, crescendoing during the scenes of combat. 

The most recent trailer was the Alone in the Dark spotlight, which was an 11-minute showcase of the game with interviews from developers, the original game's creator, the composer, and the actors. 

This one gave us much more insight into Alone in the Dark and also focused on showing it off as a survival horror experience foremost.
