Flatliners International Trailer 2

Sony Pictures has released the second international movie trailer for Flatliners (2017). This Flatliners remake / sequel looks rather bland, taking no risks and bringing nothing new to storyline besides better VFX. This trailer focuses on the side-effects to the protagonists after they stop their hearts for minutes at a time and then have their hearts re-started.

If you were going to do a remake / sequel to Flatliners, why not do something off-the-wall, insane, a film that makes a name for itself. Why not make a film were five hundred people have their hearts stopped to explore the afterlife. Some of them have heart attacks and die, some can’t have their hearts re-started, some have seizures causing permanent brain damage, etc.

What if some of the people that stopped their hearts became prisoners on the other side with the dead hijacking their bodies? There could have been killers taking over the protagonists bodies, rapists, child molesters, war criminals, famous people, warriors, you name it.

Instead, none of that will happen. The producers of this film played it absolutely safe. Flatliners will open in-theaters to $16-19 million and then be forgotten.

Flatliners‘ plot synopsis: “Medical students experiment on “near death” experiences that involve past tragedies until the dark consequences begin to jeopardize their lives.”

Niels Arden Oplev‘s Flatliners  stars Nina Dobrev, Ellen Page, Kiefer Sutherland, Diego Luna, Kiersey Clemons, Charlotte McKinney, James Norton, Tyler Hynes, Beau Mirchoff, Steve Byers, Daniela Barbosa, Ellie Patrikios, Madison Brydges, and Jenny Raven.
