Niels Arden Oplev‘s Flatliners (2017) movie trailer stars Nina Dobrev, Ellen Page, Kiefer Sutherland, Diego Luna, and Kiersey Clemons. Flatliners‘ plot synopsis: “Medical students experiment on “near death” experiences that involve past tragedies until the dark consequences begin to jeopardize their lives.”
Flatliners producer Michael Douglas had this to say about the Flatliners remake / sequel:
We viewed the original movie as a jumping-off point – and are now telling a re-imagined story with new characters. We have learned more and more about the world, and science keeps answering so many questions and taking us to so many previously unexplored places – but still no one knows what happens after we die. That’s a question we’ll be asking ourselves forever.
Though Kiefer Sutherland stared in the original 1990 film (which also starred Kevin Bacon, Julia Roberts, and William Baldwin) and is starring in this film in some capacity, from what is shown in this trailer, this does not look like a continuation. A continuation would be starting somewhere near where the previous film ended. An example of this was how the Limitless TV series picked where the film left off. Flatliners does not seem to do that from footage in this trailer.
From what is shown in this trailer, 2017’s Flatliners looks like a straight-up remake with better tech and better effects. That does not, however, mean the film will be better. One promising element of the trailer is the one-manupship that begins to happen between the Flatliners – who can stay dead the longest before being revived?
Flatliners also stars Charlotte McKinney, James Norton, Tyler Hynes, Beau Mirchoff, Steve Byers, Daniela Barbosa, Ellie Patrikios, Madison Brydges, and Jenny Raven.
