With only 2 months until the premiere, RINGS finally gets its first trailer!
Samara returns with a familiar video tape to strike terror again in the third film of The Ring series, Rings. In other words, we already know the premise and plot from the previous two movies in the Rings franchise. Though, of course, you never know what might surprise us in this latest installment.
Personally, my hopes are dangerously high because one of the screenwriters is Akiva Goldsman. He won an adapted screenplay Academy Award (along with many other awards) for A Beautiful Mind. Also, he wrote A Time to Kill, I Am Legend, and I, Robot. Oh, and yeah, he’s one of the people behind the screenplay for the upcoming adaptation of Stephen King’s The Dark Tower.
Rings has a cast featuring Matilda Lutz, Aimee Teegarden, Johnny Galecki (The Big Bang Theory), Vincent D’Onofrio (The Cell) and Alex Roe (The Fifth Wave). Naomi Watts will not reprise her role from the two previous films.
Spanish director F. Javier Gutiérrez previously made the apocalyptic sci-fi movie Tres días (with the International title Before the Fall) in 2008, but he hasn’t made a movie since then. Until now that is – and it’s the first The Ring movie in 11 years.
There’s no doubt that many people are excited to watch this new movies, after the original made its mark on many young horror fans – and definitive killed the VCR, because no one dared touch a VHS tape after the original movie came out. Just a little history lesson for the youngsters out there. Nah, just kidding, but it’s a fun little coincidence.
In fact, I’m looking forward to seeing how in the world they’ll be able to watch this new tape. Maybe they’ll have to transfer it to some sort of digital media first? And maybe – just maybe – the answer is featured in this new trailer for Rings.
Rings is scheduled for a theatrical premiere October 28, 2016 – just in time for Halloween.
