Here’s the new trailer for Doctor Sleep, based on the novel by Stephen King.

Heading into cinemas this October is the next high profile take on a Stephen King novel – following the release of It: Chapter Two this past weekend – and that’d be Doctor Sleep.

This is the film of King’s sequel to The Shining, and the movie stars Ewan McGregor as Danny Torrance, with the cast also featuring Rebecca Ferguson and Kyliegh Curran.

The movie has been directed by the brilliant Mike Flanagan too, and the new trailer landed over the weekend. It looks like this…

The full synopsis for the movie reads as follows…

“Doctor Sleep” continues the story of Danny Torrance, 40 years after his terrifying stay at the Overlook Hotel in The Shining. Ewan McGregor, Rebecca Ferguson and newcomer Kyliegh Curran star in the supernatural thriller, directed by Mike Flanagan, from his own screenplay based upon the novel by Stephen King. Still irrevocably scarred by the trauma he endured as a child at the Overlook, Dan Torrance has fought to find some semblance of peace. But that peace is shattered when he encounters Abra, a courageous teenager with her own powerful extrasensory gift, known as the “shine.” Instinctively recognizing that Dan shares her power, Abra has sought him out, desperate for his help against the merciless Rose the Hat and her followers, The True Knot, who feed off the shine of innocents in their quest for immortality. Forming an unlikely alliance, Dan and Abra engage in a brutal life-or-death battle with Rose. Abra’s innocence and fearless embrace of her shine compel Dan to call upon his own powers as never before—at once facing his fears and reawakening the ghosts of the past.

And the film is in cinemas in the UK on October 31s.
