It’s just a couple of months until we get to see what the reimagining of Poltergeist hits cinemas, with many people still unsure whether taking on the 1982 classic was worth it. The first trailer helped many get over an innate dislike of the entire idea of the movie, but there’s still a lot of fence sitting.
Now a new trailer has arrived.
The movie follow Eric and Amy Bowen (Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie DeWitt), who move into a suburban home with their 8-year-old daughter Madison (Kennedi Clements). As you’d expect, there are some supernatural entities that don’t want them there and end up abducting Madison. Jared Harris plays the supernatural researcher brought in to help.
The film is described as a contemporary update of the original, with producer Sam Raimi commenting, “The original film commented on how we’ve let television get out of control, babysitting our kids. It’s only gotten worse with the handheld portable devices. Screens are everywhere.” Gil Kenan directs.
