Warner Bros. announced last year that they were developing an adaptation of Stephen King’s sequel to The Shining, Doctor Sleep, but I hadn’t heard much about it in recent months. Well, today we got the first trailer and it is full of Shining imagery and creepy vibes. Check it out:
I like this trailer a lot. A couple years ago it seemed like every trailer that came out showed way too much of a movie. We seem to have corrected course on that, thankfully. This is exactly what a teaser should be- just a taste without giving away much of anything. I love that casting of
Obi-Wan Kenobi Ewan McGregor as Danny Torrance, and I can’t wait to see what he does with the adult version of Danny Torrance. After Haunting of Hill House, I’ll be excited for anything from director Mike Flanagan. The teases of elements from The Shining were great, especially the musical cue at the end. I didn’t read the book so I don’t know where this movie is headed, but I sure am excited to see it.
Doctor Sleep hits theaters on November 8, 2019.
Let us know what you think of the trailer in the comments.
