Danny Torrance Checks Back Into The Overlook Hotel
Warner Bros. has released the final trailer for Doctor Sleep ahead of its November release. Directed by Mike Flanagan, the adaptation of the 2013 novel serves as a direct sequel to both Stephen King’s The Shining and Stanley Kubrick’s The Shining.
Based on King’s horror novel, the movie stars Ewan McGregor as the adult version of Danny Torrance, the little boy who saw ghosts around each corner of the remote Overlook Hotel in The Shining.
Here’s the trailer:
Here’s the official synopsis:
“Struggling with alcoholism, Dan Torrance remains traumatized by the sinister events that occurred at the Overlook Hotel when he was a child. His hope for a peaceful existence soon becomes shattered when he meets Abra, a teen who shares his extrasensory gift of the “shine.” Together, they form an unlikely alliance to battle the True Knot, a cult whose members try to feed off the shine of innocents to become immortal.”
Unsurprisingly, Warner Bros. is going all-in on the nostalgia as this trailer capitalises on the iconic film from 1980. The sight of The Overlook’s hallways, Room 237, the twin girls, and that icy hedge maze. All the bases are covered.
The film’s cast includes Rebecca Ferguson, Carl Lumbly, Zahn McClarnon, Emily Alyn Lind, Bruce Greenwood, Jocelin Donahue, Alex Essoe and Cliff Curtis, and newcomer Kyliegh Curran.
Doctor Sleep hits theaters on November 8th.
