First ‘Doctor Sleep’ Trailer Reveals Mike Flanagan’s ‘The Shining’ Sequel

When Danny was a kid, his family checked into the Overlook Hotel and stuff went down. In fact, it became one of the few King novels to receive a sequel - titled Doctor Sleep - which revisited the character Danny Torrance and showed us his life since the fateful events at the Overlook Hotel.

If there's one film adaptation this year that's gonna be downright hard to pull off, it's Doctor Sleep.

The latest trailer makes nods to the original flick, confirming director Mike Flanagan's feelings in a prior interview with Bloody Disgusting, even if it isn't treated as a direct sequel to the film.

Producer Trevor Macy said each iconic scene had been reshot in painstaking detail, although the famous moment - an elevator door opens to unleash roaring cascades of blood - was lifted directly from Kubrick's footage.

"Doctor Sleep", is based off King's 2013 book and follows a now-adult Danny (Ewan McGregor) as he struggles with both internal demons and an evil force that's targeting young children. King's 1977 bestseller was adapted by Stanley Kubrick in 1980 for a movie that is now regarded as a classic. But that peace is shattered when he encounters Abra, courageous teenager with her own powerful extrasensory gift, known as the "shine". The movie is set to hit theaters on November 8, 2019. Now, Dan is forced to embrace his ability like never before in a life-or-death battle against Rose.

As a result, Danny is forced to call upon his own powers and face the ghosts of the past. "I don't want to spoil... what we've been able to revisit from Kubrick's world, but I can say that everything that we chose to use, our intention was always to detail and reference and making sure that we were doing it properly, with the hope that even kind of the most rabid cinephiles might not be able to tell the difference".
