‘Doctor Sleep’ Footage with Easter Egg teasers to ‘The Shining’

Mike Flanagan’sDoctor Sleep” which based on the novel by Stephen King, is the sequel to his iconic novel and movie “The Shining.” The movie stars Ewan McGregor who will play an adult version of Danny Torrance portrayed as an alcoholic who attempts to get sober is hit with a reawakening on his “shining” powers. He also meets a young girl who shares the same ability he has while working at a hospice center.  

Warner Bros. showed off the first footage from the film, and it shows Danny Torrance by s campfire which is talking about how to deal with his problems which would be from decades ago. Also included in the footage was a title that said “Witness the Conclusion,“ it’s to “Doctor Sleep” being the true ending to “The Shining” saga. It was very brief footage, but it started with a shot of a car driving through the forest which is similar to how “The Shining” began and ended with Danny looking up and seeing ‘Redrum’ written on the mirror. The original music also played.

Alongside Ewan McGregor, Rebecca Ferguson, Carl Lumbly, and Alex Essoe are also on board in this film. 

Mike Flanagan has been one of my favorite directors lately, as he is the man behind films as Hush, Oculus, the series The Haunting Of Hill House and now Doctor Sleep will be the second King adaption that he has directed, the first being Gerald’s Game.  2019 is proving to be the year of horror, and I cannot wait to see what this film has to offer. 

Doctor Sleep is set to be released into theaters this year on November 8th.
