Nearly six years ago the master Stephen King wrote Doctor Sleep — a sequel to his iconic novel The Shining. And, because we are still very much living in a Stephen King renaissance, they're making Doctor Sleep into a movie. Here's your first look at the teaser trailer:
Doctor Sleep stars Ewan McGregor as a grown-up Danny Torrance and takes place 40 years after his terrifying stay at the Overlook Hotel in The Shining.
