We’re just shy of one month away from the US release of Doctor Sleep, a sequel to The Shining (both the novel by Stephen King and the film by Stanley Kubrick). Expect the marketing team to shift into overdrive, like they did yesterday when they released two new posters of the film, hitting theaters November 8th (directed by Mike Flanagan). Give them both a gander below.
Struggling with alcoholism, Dan Torrance remains traumatized by the sinister events that occurred at the Overlook Hotel when he was a child. His hope for a peaceful existence soon becomes shattered when he meets Abra, a teen who shares his extrasensory gift of the “shine.” Together, they form an unlikely alliance to battle the True Knot, a cult whose members try to feed off the shine of innocents to become immortal.
Doctor Sleep stars Rebecca Ferguson, Ewan McGregor, and Jacob Tremblay.
