Doctor Sleep Debuts Official Teaser Trailer & Poster

Doctor Sleep may be a sequel to Stephen King’s The Shining, but the upcoming movie adaptation of the 2013 novel is sure working to tie itself to the 1980 film adaptation as much as the novel. This is of course ironic given King always felt the Stanley Kubrick-directed film was an affront to his original novel, but given the climb in status of Kubrick’s film since it’s original theatrical release, it’s no surprise that the film works to connect to it. And now, focusing on an adult Danny Torrance (Played by Ewan McGregor), the first teaser trailer for the film has been released today. Check it out below:

Doctor Sleep co-stars Rebecca Ferguson, Kyliegh Curran (In her feature film debut), Carl Lumbly, Zahn McClarnon, Emily Alyn Lind, Bruce Greenwood, Jocelin Donahue, Alex Essoe, and Cliff Curtis. It is written and directed by Mike Flanagan. It is set to hit theaters October 30th globally before being released in the United States and Canada on November 8th.
