Warner Bros. has shared the first trailer for the upcoming Stephen King adaptation of the follow-up to his classic novel, Doctor Sleep. Starring Ewan McGregor, Doctor Sleep will follow an older Danny Torrance, who learns of his ability called “The Shining,” only to uncover a quest by a secretive cult to track down people with its power and kill them.
Directed by Mike Flanagan (Haunting on Hill House), Doctor Sleep looks like yet another fantastic Stephen King adaptation, which seem to be coming fairly consistently the last few years. Doctor Sleep hits theaters on November 8th.
Warner Bros. has released the first trailer for Stephen King’s IT: Chapter Two, the follow-up to the massive horror success in 2017. The teaser starts off with a tense, extended scene before revealing the film’s star-studded cast that includes Jessica Chastian, James McAvoy, Bill Hader, and more.
Given the success of the first film, and its relatively barren release date, IT: Chapter Two is poised to dominate the box office when it hits theaters on September 6th.
Despite the upcoming launch of Disney+, it would seem that Marvel has not foregone the rest of the streaming world. Marvel Television has announced two new series, set to stream on Hulu. Both Ghost Rider, and Hellstrom, will be making their way to the service, with Runaways confirmed for a third season.
“We’re thrilled Hulu will be moving into a new—admittedly chilling—corner of the Marvel Universe with GHOST RIDER and HELLSTROM. Paul and Ingrid are crafting gripping adventures into fear that live in our SPIRITS OF VENGEANCE cornerstone,” said Marvel Television’s Joseph Loeb. Ghost Rider will follow Robbie Reyes, with Ingrid Escajeda serving as showrunner. Hellstrom refers to Daimon and Stana Hellstrom, who both made their debut back in 1973, thanks in part to the popularity of Ghost Rider. Paul Zbyszewski will serve as showrunner, with this being the live-action debuts of those characters. Currently no other details are available for the series yet, but expect to learn more in the future.

The newest trailer for the upcoming reboot of Child’s Play is now online, giving us our first glimpse of the killer doll in action, as well as the voice of Mark Hamill (Star Wars) as the horror icon. Rather than being possessed by an evil spirit in this rendition, Chucky will be a secret military prototype, with the ability to control other smart connected appliances through the network he’s attached to.
While that premise sounds ridiculous, it also sounds like a perfect modern day re-telling, in my opinion. Child’s Play stars Mark Hamill, Aubrey Plaza, Gabriel Bateman, Beatrice Kitsos, Ty Consiglio, and Brian Tyree Henry. Slashing its way into theaters on June 21st.

Margaux Needler, the reality TV makeover queen, is consumed with a desire for absolute suburban, pastel perfection.
