    Looks WILD! I really enjoyed the book, too.

    BTW, those scenes are not from the original film; they were recreated. Pretty cool.

    The book was pretty good. I thought it had too many villains, though. This trailer did nothing for me, but I will see the movie. I never miss a Stephen King adaptation.

    Being a sequel to The Shining, I'm interested in seeing this. Seems interesting enough, though the filter they seem to be using is very reminiscent of those early 2000's films, where they all basically looked washed out and bland.

    I can't imagine King is pleased they're using the imagery and music from Kubrick's The Shining. Although for me those were the most interesting moments in the trailer.

    Sounds like King gave the okay, although I dislike the framing of this narrative. As if the writer of the original novel would have to incorporate elements of a film adaptation into the sequel he also wrote. What kind of terrible perspective is this on behalf of the writer at the AV Club?

    Thanks for that link, Workshed. Glad he signed off on it but I still would love to have been a fly on King's wall the first time he saw the trailer.

    And I agree with you 100% about the article's perspective. Why on earth would King have incorporated any of Kubrick's changes in the sequel to his own novel?
