‘Rings’ Trailer: A Surprise New Sequel/Reboot for The Horror Franchise

Surprise! Here comes Rings, a sequel/reboot to the 2002 hit horror film The Ring – an adaptation of the 1998 Japanese thriller, Ringu. There was already one sequel, The Ring 2, back in 2005, but really nobody remembers that one.

Samara is back, and her tech has been updated for 2016. Now she has to crawl out of flatscreens. Check out the trailer:


And here’s a synopsis:

Julia becomes worried about her boyfriend, Holt, when he explores the dark urban legend of a mysterious videotape said to kill the watcher seven days after viewing. She sacrifices herself to save her boyfriend and in doing so makes a horrifying discovery: there is a “movie within the movie” that no one has ever seen before.

So there you have it. Relative unknowns Matilda Lutz, Alex Roe, Bonnie Morgan, and Aimee Teegarden star alongside Johnny Galecki and Vincent D’Onofrio, who’s always nice to have around for a little bit of weird craziness. I like the new tricks in the film, especially the airplane scene where Samara gets into all those personal monitors.

Rings will open October 28. Are you pumped to see this new entry?
