In theaters Thursday night, Warner Bros.’ epic Stephen King horror drama “Doctor Sleep” is about to horrify fans and moviegoers. And Warners dropped a new trailer for IMAX today.
Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 horror film The Shining left out things that were present in Stephen King’s original 1977 novel. So when it came time to adapt Doctor Sleep, Stephen King’s sequel novel to The Shining, for the big screen, director Mike Flanagan saw a unique opportunity. Specifically, Doctor Sleep will include parts of The Shining that didn’t make it into Kubrick’s movie. In Flanagan’s own words,
My strategy was to honor what Kubrick did, and to approach this like an authentic sequel to the film that he made, while also trying to honor themes from the novel The Shining that didn’t make it into the film.
