Looks good, but I'm waiting for folks to dog out the color palette. Looked rather...teal.

I didnít even realize there was a sequel book to The Shining. This looks awesome though and Iím excited to see it. Love that itís tied with the Kubrick film and not the mini-series.

You would love it even more if it was tied to the shining novel and not the film at all

Yea so many King adaptations are all over the place with budgets and quality.

King could have his own expansive MCU style universe if a studio wanted.

Isn't that what the Castle Rock TV Series is supposed to be?

Mike Flanagan just tweeted:
DOCTOR SLEEP has officially been rated R by the MPAA for "disturbing and violent content, some bloody images, language, nudity and drug use." Sounds about right...

So it's official, they're keeping the overlook hotel intact (It was no longer standing in the book....Doctor Sleep) - this will be what they use to fill time more than likely as the book didn't have enough substance at all. I'm down with that and we'll see how well "The True Knot" (the name of the villians) are portrayed - here are some of the goofy-ass cringe worthy names of the true knot members - let's see if they keep any:

- Token Charlie
- Snakebite Andy
- Grandpa Flick
- Rose the hat
- Crow Daddy
- Barry the Chink
- Silent Sarey

Re: Stephen King's Doctor Sleep (2020, D: Flanagan) S: McGregor, Ferguson

I like the name Crow Dadddy (don't recall the character specifically from the book though), but yeah the rest are ridiculous. Looking at imdb all the names are intact for the film.

Trailer is pretty solid. The book had very little to do with the Shining though. I'm interested to see what other changes (like keeping the Overlook) the film made to tie it into the Shining more than King did. On top of that, which version of the Shining is this movie a sequel to, the book or the Kubrick hack job? If they don't add a bunch of stuff, I don't think audiences will be interested.
