Doctor Sleep And Some Other Movies You May Or May Not Have Heard About

I’ve spent the last 39 years trying to love, or even like, Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 film version of Stephen King’s The Shining, but my perhaps heretical confession must be that I haven’t had much success. I don’t, as King himself does, have issues with the fact that the movie differs in significant ways from the novel—they are, after all, two different entities produced from the minds of two very different artists. But the movie has always felt like an intellectual exercise undertaken by someone who isn’t engaged by the genre he’s chosen to play with, the product of a director who is profoundly bored and needs to create an elaborate landscape of puzzles and design to distract from his fundamental disinterest. I think the movie’s deliberateness masks a certain listlessness as Kubrick pokes around the edges of the story; what registers as a

We talk to director Mike Flanagan & Kyliegh Curran for Doctor Sleep!

  • JoBlo
While visiting the actual hotel that inspired Stephen King to write The Shining, I had the opportunity to sit down with director Mike Flanagan and star Kyliegh Curran to talk about the sequel, Doctor Sleep. Flanagan is no stranger to the horror genre, having made a name for himself over the years with films like Oculus, Hush, Gerald's Game and most recently with Netflix's The Haunting of Hill House. As someone who was heavily affected by Stanley Kubrick's The Shining and…

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,

‘Doctor Sleep’ First Reactions Say the ‘Shining’ Sequel Is the Best Stephen King Film Since ‘Shawshank’
First reactions are pouring in for writer/director Mike Flanagan’s Stephen King adaptation “Doctor Sleep,” which Warner Bros. releases on November 8. The film is an adaptation of King’s 2013 novel of the same name, which serves as a sequel to “The Shining,” here following grown-up Danny (Ewan McGregor) in his attempts to build a normal life in the shadow of everything that went down at the Overlook.

Below, IndieWire has rounded up first impressions of the movie, which also stars Rebecca Ferguson, Carl Lumbly, and Alex Essoe. In the new film, things get complicated for McGregor’s adult Danny when he meets a young girl who shares his psychic gifts while working at a hospice center.

With #DoctorSleepMovie, Mike Flanagan delivers the best parts of Kubrick and King in one movie.

It made me feel silly for wanting to step back into The Overlook, instead of stepping forward from The Shining with Danny.

‘Doctor Sleep’ to Run Longer Than ‘The Shining,’ Promising Another 2019 Horror Epic

‘Doctor Sleep’ to Run Longer Than ‘The Shining,’ Promising Another 2019 Horror Epic
Horror maestro Mike Flanagan has issued a warning to moviegoers anticipating his upcoming Stephen King adaptation “Doctor Sleep”: “Yeah, you may want to go with the Small soda.” Flanagan’s advice comes on the heels of AMC Theaters confirming “Doctor Sleep” will have a runtime of 152 minutes. The runtime not only makes “Doctor Sleep” the second Stephen King film to run over 150 minutes in 2019 (September’s “It Chapter Two” clocked in at nearly three hours with its 169 minute runtime), but it also makes “Sleep” longer than Stanley Kubrick’s “The Shining” (146 minutes).

Doctor Sleep” is based on King’s 2013 “Shining” sequel novel of the same name. Ewan McGregor stars in the film as an adult version of Danny Torrance, now an alcoholic night nurse struggling to recover from the trauma of his childhood (as depicted in “The Shining”). Danny finds new purpose when he meets a young girl with similar shining powers.

Yolanda Ramke and Ben Howling set to co-direct Netflix thriller

Yolanda Ramke and Ben Howling.

Yolanda Ramke was browsing social media when she spotted a tweet from Mike Flanagan, creator/showrunner of Netflix’s The Haunting of Hill House, complimenting her and her co-director Ben Howling on Cargo.

Thrilled, Ramke sent off a grateful response to Flanagan. That prompted her Us agent, CAA’s Matt Martin, who knew a second series was in the works, to get in touch with the co-executive producer, Intrepid PicturesTrevor Macy.

In turn that led to a Skype interview for Ramke and Howling with Flanagan and Macy. After a brief wait, the offer came for the duo to co-direct episodes of The Haunting of Bly Manor, which is now shooting in Vancouver.

Flanagan announced the hiring of the Aussies on Twitter along with Ciarán Foy, Liam Gavin (A Dark Song) and Axelle Carolyn.

‘Doctor Sleep’: Go Back to the Overlook With the Final Trailer for Mike Flanagan’s ‘Shining’ Sequel

  • Indiewire
The final trailer for Warner Bros. Pictures’ “Doctor Sleep,” opening wide on November 8, has arrived. This one crams in as many visual and auditory references to Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 film as possible, as if to say, “This is still ‘The Shining,’ you’re safe here.” Director Mike Flanagan’s new film adapts from Stephen King’s “Shining” sequel of the same name, published in 2013, and it picks up several decades after the original film and 1977 book.

Ewan McGregor stars as the now grown-up Danny Torrance, who possesses psychic powers but also a drinking problem just like daddy. Even as an adult, Danny is still understandably pretty freaked out about the shit that went down at the Overlook Hotel way back when.

In “Doctor Sleep,” Danny’s journey to sobriety gets complicated (and spooky) when he meets a young girl who shares his gifts while working at a hospice center. Joining

'Hobbs & Shaw' Looks to Once Again Fend Off a Flurry of New Releases

'Hobbs & Shaw' Looks to Once Again Fend Off a Flurry of New Releases
Like last weekend, this weekend features five new wide releases, and while we're forecasting Universal's Hobbs & Shaw will finish atop the weekend box office for the third straight weekend in a row, it could be challenged by at least three of the weekend's newcomers. Challengers for that #1 spot include Universal's R-rated comedy Good Boys, Sony's Angry Birds 2 (which debuted on Tuesday) and Entertainment Studios's 47 Meters Down: Uncaged. Alternatively, Uar's Where'd You Go, Bernadette and Warner's Blinded by the Light look to be in a dogfight for tenth position as neither appears they will break out from the pack. After a -58% drop last weekend and a second straight weekend at #1, Universal's Hobbs & Shaw could join Glass and Avengers: Endgame as the only films to top the weekend box office three weekends in a row in 2019. This weekend we're expecting a -48% drop and a three-day around $13 million

Netflix Orders Midnight Mass Horror Series From the Creators of The Haunting Of Hill House

Netflix has decided to continue its blossoming relationship with The Haunting of Hill House director and writer Mike Flanagan and producer Trevor Macy. Their last series together was an incredibly huge hit, and fans are really excited for what the second season will bring.

But now we have news that Netflix has ordered another series from the pair, another horror series called Midnight Mass. Deadline reports:

The seven-episode Midnight Mass follows an isolated island community that experiences miraculous events — and frightening omens — after the arrival of a charismatic, mysterious young priest. Flanagan will direct and serve as an executive producer alongside Macy. The project has no relation to the Midnight, Mass Vertigo comics.

This sounds like an interesting premise. These guys have worked together on many projects, including the films Oculus, Gerald’s Game, Hush, and Before I Wake. And now they are pretty much on a roll.

‘Doctor Sleep’ Director Mike Flanagan Sets Genre Series ‘Midnight Mass’ at Netflix

I'll admit, it took me a while to come around on genre filmmaker Mike Flanagan but I'm firmly on the bandwagon these days. I remember being decidedly unimpressed with his haunted mirror movie Oculus, and didn't really get what all the was fuss was about early in his career. But Netflix has really forced me to do a '180' on the guy. I really liked Flanagan's low-budget thrillers Hush and Gerald's Game, and I've heard good things about his latest Stephen King adaptation, Doctor Sleep, which serves a sequel to The Shining.

‘Doctor Sleep’ First Trailer: ‘The Shining’ Sequel Torments Ewan McGregor

‘Doctor Sleep’ First Trailer: ‘The Shining’ Sequel Torments Ewan McGregor
Few movies carry the weight of expectations this year as “Doctor Sleep,” the upcoming Stephen King adaptation from horror maestro Mike Flanagan. The film is a sequel to “The Shining” and casts Ewan McGregor as an adult Danny Torrence. Considering Stanley Kubrick’s 1980 “Shining” adaptation is considered one of the best horror movies ever made, there’s a lot of pressure on “Doctor Sleep” to deliver terror later this year.

Doctor Sleep” picks up with Danny tormented from the events of childhood. The character is an alcoholic whose supernatural “shining” abilities reawaken when he tries to get sober. Danny’s journey gets complicated (and scary) when he meets a young girl who shares his gifts while working at a hospice center. Joining McGregor in the cast are Rebecca Ferguson, Carl Lumbly, and Alex Essoe.

Following Kubrick’s “The Shining” is certainly no easy task, but horror fans should feel confident with Flanagan behind the camera.

Star Wars Celebration 2019 Preview: What Can We Expect?

It's almost time for fans of a galaxy far, far away to gather together in solidarity in order to celebrate all things Star Wars. Indeed, Star Wars Celebration 2019 is about to take over Chicago and, since Disney and Lucasfilm skipped out on doing the event last year, it's been two years since the event was held last. And fans are eager for some real news. There will be plenty of that coming our way over the next few days and we're going to preview everything to expect, as well as what maybe not to expect.

Part of the reason Lucasfilm decided not to hold the event last year is that they really didn't have all that much to showcase. That is far from the case this year, as they not only have Star Wars 9 coming down the pipeline, but they've also got their live-action shows for Disney+, the animated shows

Emmy spotlight: ‘The Haunting of Hill House’ director Mike Flanagan sets a new benchmark for TV horror

Shirley Jackson’s 1959 novel “The Haunting of Hill House” has already been adapted twice for the big screen, in 1963 by Robert Wise and in 1999 by Jan de Bont under the title “The Haunting.” In October, Netflix premiered Mike Flanagan’s first “Haunting” anthology series installment, a reimagining of Jackson’s novel with the same name. Flanagan not only directed all 10 episodes but also wrote or co-wrote several of them. Will he haunt Emmy voters enough to crawl his way into the limited series/TV movie directing race?

The first season follows Hugh Crain (Henry Thomas) and his wife Olivia (Carla Gugino), as they move into Hill House with their five children in 1992 to renovate it, sell it, and use the money to build their own house as designed by Olivia. When unexpected repairs lengthen their stay, they start to experience paranormal activities, and a tragic loss forces them to escape
