Dan Torrance Returns To Overlook Hotel In Creepy Final Trailer To “Doctor Sleep”

By Creative Media Times

On the same week that Warner Bros. Pictures’ “IT: Chapter 2” is dominating the boxoffice comes the release of the final trailer to the studio’s upcoming horror film “Doctor Sleep”.

“Doctor Sleep” is an adaptation of Stephen King’s 2013 novel of the same name, a sequel to King’s 1977 novel The Shining.

The film follows Danny (played by Ewan McGregor) now an adult and an alcoholic, battling the childhood trauma that he experienced with his family in the Overlook Hotel, the main setting of The Shining’s film adaptation from Stanley Kubrick.

The trailer is heavy on nostalgia and references, featuring some iconic characters and images from the original Kubrick film, such as the Overlook Hotel, the Grady twins, young Danny riding his bike through the haunted hallways of the hotel, the elevator gushing blood, and room 237 giving viewers a peek of what may be inside.

We also see a new character named Abra, a teenage girl who has her own powerful extrasensory gift. “I don’t know about magic. I’ve always called it the shining,” McGregor’s Danny tells Abra when the two meet in person for the first time.

There’s a couple of characters from 1980 original that are returning in the sequel: Dick Hallorann, the former cook from the Overlook Hotel and Danny’s mother Wendy, this time played by Carl Lumbly and Alex Essoe respectively.

The film is written and directed by Mike Flanagan, who directed the highly underrated Oculus from 2013, the hit Netflix series “The Haunting of the Hill House” as well as King’s “Gerald’s Game” for Netflix.

The film co-stars Rebecca Ferguson (Mission: Impossible – Fallout), Bruce Greenwood (Gerald’s Game), and child actress Kyliegh Curran. “Doctor Sleep” is set to be released by Warner Bros. Pictures on November 8, 2019.

The final trailer for Joaquin Phoenix’s Joker has just arrived, ahead of the highly-anticipated film’s premiere at the 76th Venice International Film Festival later this weekend.

The trailer is dark and bleak, showing the character’s slow descent into madness. Arthur Fleck (Phoenix) lives a lonely life and tends to his ailing mother.

J.J. Abrams Makes His Mark On Marvel In The Spider-Man #1: Trailer

J.J. Abrams, the modern master of mystery, makes his mark on Marvel in the Spider-Man 1 Trailer. The All-Star team of J.J. Abrams, Henry Abrams, and Sara Pichelli assembles for this sensational series.

J.J. Abrams takes the webbed wonder to new heights when he and his son Henry partner with legendary spider-artist Sara Pichelli for a Spider-Man story like you’ve never seen before! Cadaverous, a terrifying new villain, will force Spidey to make some of the hardest choices of his life. Can he protect MJ, Manhattan…or even himself? Check out this brand new trailer for SPIDER-MAN #1 featuring Executive Editor Nick Lowe and writers J.J. and Henry Abrams.

“Having these geniuses working together on Spider-Man, the greatest fictional character of all time, couldn’t be better,” Lowe exclaimed, a sentiment shared by the Abrams. “We knew [Sara Pichelli’s] stuff – she’s a genius,” J.J. added. “The fact that we got Sara to do this book was the luckiest gift of all time.”

Henry Abrams went on to shed more light on the creative team’s thinking behind the scenes. “Spider-Man in general has been one of the most interesting super hero characters to me – how when he gets stronger, his problems get bigger,” he said. “A large focus on our series was [Spider-Man] as a person and not just him as a mask. So how does he deal with these real issues? It’s been a pleasure exploring that.”

“Cadaverous is one of the most terrifying Spider-Man villains of all time – and that’s saying something,” Lowe warned. “Spidey has faced the Green Goblin, Carnage, Venom, and Cadaverous might be even scarier and a little bit grosser than any of them.” SPIDER-MAN #1 arrives September 18 in comic shops, on the Marvel Comics App, and on Marvel.com.

By Creative Media Times

A24

The highly-anticipated film’s riveting first trailer has just been released, see below.

Set in a remote and mysterious lighthouse on a New England island in the 1890s, the film follows two lighthouse keepers “just looking to earn a living, on the run,” as they face solitude and their worst nightmares on a storm-ridden deserted island.

“How long have we been on this rock? Five weeks? Two days? Help me to recollect,” Dafoe’s asks Pattinson.

The film had its world premiere on May 19, 2019 at the Cannes Film Festival on May 19, 2019, where Dafoe, Pattinson and director Eggers received critical acclaim, along with the film’s technical aspects.

Pattinson has recently appeared in indie films and worked with renowned directors as Werner Herzog and David Cronenberg as well as gained positive reviews in the crime film “Good Time” and this year’s science-fiction horror film “High Life”.

Trailer Premiere of upcoming horror film “Bliss” from Joe Begos

By Creative Media times

Dark Sky Films has released the official trailer premiere for the upcoming horror film, Bliss.
Written, produced & directed by Joe Begos, the film is set to open in theaters and on digital platforms on September 27, 2019.

Here is the film’s official synopsis:
Known for her dark and macabre artwork, painter Dezzy Donahue (Dora Madison) is in a professional rut. Unable to finish her newest commissioned work, Dezzy looks to reignite her creative juices by letting loose-as in, taking every drug in sight and tearing through raucous house parties and heavy metal bars. After a few nights spent with her debauchery-loving friends Courtney (Tru Collins) and Ronnie (Rhys Wakefield), though, Dezzy notices changes within herself. On the positive side, she’s finally painting again, but she’s also developing a strange desire for blood. As someone who has never been able to control her vices in the first place, Dezzy is quickly and violently consumed by this bloodlust.

With his previous films, Almost Human (2013) and The Mind’s Eye (2015), filmmaker Joe Begos won the hearts of horror lovers through his stylistic nostalgia and inhibition-free penchant for brutality. Upping the ante, BLISS roars with searing visuals, kinetic energy, an endearing nastiness, and a ferociously all-in lead performance from Madison. Although it’s set in modern-day Los Angeles, BLISS harkens back to the grimy days of New York City grindhouse cinema, when films like Abel Ferrara’s The Driller Killer and Bill Lustig’s Maniac were the norm.
