Stephen King's Shining Sequel Doctor Sleep Gets Scary First Trailer

The first trailer for Doctor Sleep is here. The movie is based on Stephen King's 2013 novel and is directed by Mike Flanagan, who previously helmed the Netflix adaptation of King's Gerald's Game, as well as the hit show The Haunting of Hill House.

King's novel is a sequel to his classic The Shining. In the new movie, Ewan McGregor plays the adult version of Danny Torrance, the telekinetic kid from that earlier book and movie. Torrance meets a young girl with similar powers to his and must protect her from a sinister cult who are targeting children with similar gifts. Flanagan has previously proved himself a master at balancing scares and a heartfelt drama, and this looks like no exception. There's also quite a few cool references to scenes and iconic moments from The Shining--check it out above.

Doctor Sleep also stars Rebecca Ferguson (Mission Impossible: Fallout), Bruce Greenwood (Gerald's Game), Jocelin Donahue (House of the Devil), and Jacob Tremblay (The Predator). Danny isn't the only character from The Shining to feature either--Carl Lumbly (Alias) plays Dick Hallorann, while Alex Essoe (Starry Eyes) appears as Wendy Torrance. The movie hits theaters on November 9, 2019.

In a recent interview with Bloody Disgusting, Flanagan spoke about the inevitable shadow that Stanley Kubrick's movie adaption of The Shining cast over Doctor Sleep. "I think you do have to acknowledge [it]," he said. "There is no version of the world where I am trying not to acknowledge one of the greatest films ever made. There's no upside in shying away from that reality.

"It's its own story and in a very specific way," he continued. "If you've read the book, you know exactly why it's so different but it's quite a tightrope that we're walking I think. I'm having a great time doing it. I'm just going to get the movie out and then turn off the internet for two weeks and see how it all goes."
