Paramount Vantage has finally dusted off Case 39, which has apparently been sitting on the shelf since 2009. The film stars Bradley Cooper and Renee Zellwegger and looks pretty slick and creepy, so we're hoping that the shelving was due mostly to Paramount's dismantling of the Vantage subdivision, and not because it's a bad movie, though the general lack of advertising seems to suggest otherwise.
Check out the trailer below, and read a full synopsis after the jump. Then mosey on over to our Case 39 pictures gallery to see the film's poster! You can see Case 39 in theaters starting today!

In CASE 39, family services social worker Emily Jenkins (Renée Zellweger) thinks she has seen it all… until she meets 10-year old Lilith Sullivan (Jodelle Ferland) and the child’s cruel and dangerous parents. Her worst fears are confirmed when the parents try to harm Lily, their only daughter. Frightened for her life, Emily enlists the help of Detective Mike Barron (Ian McShane) and takes Lily in while she continues the search for the perfect foster family. Just as it seems as though Lily is on her way to a more loving home, under the guidance of Emily and psychiatrist (Bradley Cooper), dark forces surrounding this young girl come to light and, little do they know, their attempts to protect her will only bring on greater horror…
