“I don’t know about magic… I always called it ‘the shining.'” Starring Ewan McGregor, Rebecca Ferguson and newcomer Kyliegh Curran continues the story of Danny Torrance, 40 years after his terrifying stay at the Overlook Hotel in ‘The Shining.’ Check out the official first look trailer below.


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.

Directed by Mike Flanagan (‘The Haunting of Hill House’) from his own screenplay, based upon the novel Doctor Sleep by Stephen King, the main ensemble cast also includes Carl Lumbly, Zahn McClarnon, Emily Alyn Lind, Bruce Greenwood, Jocelin Donahue, Alex Essoe and Cliff Curtis.

DOCTOR SLEEP is released in Irish cinemas on October 31.
