The first full trailer for Doctor Sleep is here, and it seems that it’s not just going to be a sequel to the novel of The Shining like Stephen King’s book was, it’s also going to be a sequel to the film version going by the clips, the music at the end and Ewan McGregor peering through a hole in a door that he appears to have created.
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.
Mike Flanagan writes and directs, while Ewan McGregor, Rebecca Ferguson, Carl Lumbly, Alex Essoe, Kyliegh Curran, Bruce Greenwood and Alyn Lind star.
Doctor Sleep is in cimemas on November 8th.
