Doctor Sleep (2019)

Unread post by Krappy » 1 year ago

The film continues the story of Danny Torrance, 40 years after his terrifying stay at the Overlook Hotel in The Shining. Still irrevocably scarred by the trauma he endured as a child at the Overlook, Dan Torrance has fought to find some semblance of peace. But that peace is shattered when he encounters Abra, a courageous teenager with her own powerful extrasensory gift, known as the “shine.” Instinctively recognizing that Dan shares her power, Abra has sought him out, desperate for his help against the merciless Rose the Hat and her followers, The True Knot, who feed off the shine of innocents in their quest for immortality.

Forming an unlikely alliance, Dan and Abra engage in a brutal life-or-death battle with Rose. Abra’s innocence and fearless embrace of her shine compel Dan to call upon his own powers as never before—at once facing his fears and reawakening the ghosts of the past.

Originally had a January 24, 2020 theatrical release.
Director Mike Flanagan confirmed in an interview that the film will acknowledge The Shining, saying: “I think you do have to acknowledge that. There is no version of the world where I am trying not to acknowledge one of the greatest films ever made. There’s no upside in shying away from that reality. At the same time, this is not The Shining. It’s its own story and in a very specific way. If you’ve read the book, you know exactly why it’s so different but it’s quite a tightrope that we’re walking I think. I’m having a great time doing it. I’m just going to get the movie out and then turn off the internet for two weeks and see how it all goes.”
Carl Lumbly plays “Dick Hallorann.”
Alex Essoe plays “Wendy Torrance,” continuing off her character and storyline from The Shining.
Bruce Greenwood plays “Dr. John.”
Emily Alyn Lind (Lights Out) plays “Snakebite Andi, a member of a nomadic psychic group who feeds off the ‘steam’ of those children gifted with ‘the Shining’.”
Rebecca Ferguson is in talks to star opposite Ewan McGregor.
Ewan McGregor is set to play Danny Torrance in the film.
Akiva Goldsman (Insurgent, Rings, The Dark Tower) wrote an early draft of the script.
Mike Flanagan (Oculus, Before I Wake, Gerald’s Game) will direct.
Based on the novel with the same name from Stephen King. The novel itself is a sequel to 1977’s The Shining.
Warner Bros. released the Mike Flanagan-directed The Shining sequel, Doctor Sleep, on November 8, 2019.

Doctor Sleep is apparently a cinematic awakening.

After attending an exclusive screening for the latest Stephen King adaptation ahead of its November release, critics have flooded Twitter with their thoughts on Doctor Sleep. So far, reactions are extraordinarily positive.




There’s plenty of callbacks to The Shining in Mike Flanagan’s Doctor Sleep. There are also references to Stephen King’s Dark Tower series, cameos from familiar faces, and plenty more things to discover. No need to ask Tony for help; here are all the Easter eggs you missed in Doctor Sleep.



Doctor Sleep brings Stephen King’s novel to the screen in a way that both honors the author’s original version of The Shining and manages to reconcile it with Stanley Kubrick’s vision. The result is a film that’s a sequel to two stories at once​, with its own mythology and a multilayered ending.



You know that Doctor Sleep and The Shining are connected…but how? Well, you don’t need psychic abilities to figure that one out: Today we’re explaining the many connections between the two films, including returning characters and returning themes.

One of the burning questions regarding Ewan McGregor’s interpretation of his role in Doctor Sleep is, who is *this* Dan Torrance? Is he the older version of the Stephen King character or Stanley Kubrick’s rendition? I recently got the chance to sit down with McGregor and he told me all about that balancing act, what it was like working with director Mike Flanagan, and also about how the themes of addiction and recovery drew him to the project.




Similar to the Stephen King source material, Mike Flanagan’s film doesn’t give us all that much backstory on Rose the Hat so when I sat down with Rebecca Ferguson to talk about her experience making the movie, she weighed in on the potential of a Rose prequel. (Trust me; after seeing Doctor Sleep, you’re going to want more of her!) On top of that, we also chatted about Ferguson’s very real fear of jump scares, the most recent King novel she’s read, a pivotal reaction shot that she absolutely nails in the third act of the film, and more!




In this interview with Doctor Sleep director Mike Flanagan, he discusses how he went about recreating iconic characters from The Shining like Wendy Torrance and also discusses one major plot point from the Doctor Sleep book that he couldn’t include in his movie.




Jumping into your very first major studio film must be hugely intimidating but could you imagine starring in your first big release alongside Ewan McGregor and Rebecca Ferguson, being directed by Mike Flanagan, and also working with Stephen King source material? That’s exactly what Kyliegh Curran got to do on the big screen adaptation of Doctor Sleep.

Hear all about her experience making the film, her first time watching a horror movie, the Stephen King book she’s reading right now and loads more in this interview!





WARNING! This interview contains Doctor Sleep spoilers.

Director Mike Flanagan goes all out in the third act of his adaptation of Stephen King’s Doctor Sleep, but there’s one scene in particular that might be the most ambitious of all and Flanagan knows it - the scene at The Overlook bar featuring the return of Jack Torrance, here played by Flanagan’s The Haunting of Hill House star, Henry Thomas.

Check out what Flanagan and Ewan McGregor had to say about working on that scene in this interview!
