New ‘Flatliners’ Trailer: Some Nasty Side Effects…

30 July 2017 10:00 AM, PDT | Slash Film | See recent Slash Film news »

From producer Michael Douglas comes a remake of Flatliners. Based on Joel Schumacher‘s 1990 film, the premise appears to be more or less the same with some modern touches. It’s a fine movie that doesn’t quite live up to its premise, so unlike a lot of cases, a remake here makes sense. So far, based on […]

New International Trailer for Niels Arden Oplev's 'Flatliners' Remake

27 July 2017 9:15 AM, PDT | firstshowing.net | See recent FirstShowing.net news »

"It's like her brain's been rewired!" Sony has debuted another new international trailer for the remake of Flatliners, the movie about medical students who temporarily stop their hearts in order to experience the afterlife. This new film is directed by Danish filmmaker Niels Arden Oplev, of the original The Girl with a Dragon Tattoo movie, and seems to be more horror than suspense. The cast of this new Flatliners includes Ellen Page, Diego Luna, Nina Dobrev, James Norton, and Kiersey Clemons. The original film was directed by Joel Schumacher and was released in 1990, but hasn't aged well over the years though it does still have a following. This new Flatliners plays more like a horror similar to Jacob's Ladder than a drama or spiritual thriller, but still looks intriguing. I'm honestly curious about seeing this, maybe it will be good. Here's the new international trailer for Niels Arden Oplev's Flatliners, »

Say Hello from the other side with the new Flatliners sequel trailer

27 July 2017 8:50 AM, PDT | HeyUGuys.co.uk | See recent HeyUGuys news »

Author: Jon Lyus

Stick this one firmly in the ‘We didn’t really ask for another sequel/remake/reboot to Flatliners but thanks all the same’ camp – It’s a crowded arena to be sure. If this new version was honestly marketed as having nothing to do with the original 90s film then it might spark a little more interest. Making it a sequel seems hoist it unnecessarily to a not-very-well remembered original which hasn’t exactly become a pop cultural icon.

Still, that’s the movie-making game right now. And throw a few thousand volts through us! This new trailer makes this generations’ dalliance with the afterlife look like fun. The new Flatliners is directed by The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo’s Niels Arden Oplev and stars Ellen Page, Nina Dobrev, James Norton, Diego Luna, Kiersey Clemons, all of whom express the requisite arrogance and remorse their parts demand. »

International Trailer For Flatliners Generates A Sense Of Morbid Curiosity

27 July 2017 7:00 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

“What if we could document what happens to us after we die?” That is, in a nutshell, the crux of Flatliners, Sony’s long-brewing horror sequel that extracts all of the unnerving science and existential musings of the 1990 cult classic and projects them onto the canvas for a new generation.

Coming by way of director Niels Arden Oplev, creative mind behind The Girl With The Tattoo – the Swedish version, that is, not the adaptation from Sony and David FincherFlatliners has pulled together a fairly impressive lineup of known stars (see: Ellen Page) and actors that are just now beginning to break into Hollywood’s big leagues, such as Diego Luna.

However that may be, and pardon the pun, but we imagine Flatliners will live or die depending on the strength of its script. Last we reported, the film’s debut trailer was riddled with bland, uninspired dialogue (“it’s »

Peer Into A Life Beyond Death With All-New Images For Sony’s Flatliners Sequel

7 July 2017 10:25 AM, PDT | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

In the world of Flatliners, death is merely the beginning.

That’s a clichéd phrase that is so often tossed around Hollywood’s marketing departments year in, year out, but in Niels Arden Oplev’s long-rumored horror sequel, death is literally the beginning of a new life for five whip-smart medical students attempting to play God.

Headed up by Ellen Page, Diego Luna (Rogue One: A Star Wars Story), Nina Dobrev, James Norton and Kiersey Clemons (The Flash), Flatliners toys with the fine line between life and death, as our group of characters undergoes terrifying near-death experiences in the hope of gaining a new lease of life. Talk about poetic irony. But venturing over to the other side has consequences of its own, and after showcasing its first teaser trailer, Sony has now rolled out a handful of foreboding images that find Ellen Page and the rest of the gang »

Flatliners Trailer Looks Awfully Cool, Still About Same Goofy Idea

15 June 2017 8:32 PM, PDT | AreYouScreening.com | See recent AreYouScreening news »

27 years ago a bunch of big names got together with Joel Schumacher and made a fairly standard “vacation” movie. It was a screwball idea, but it was entertaining enough. 

For reasons no one can fathom, apart from some need to remake everything, we’re jumping into this well again, and while it looks really fantastic, that doesn’t change the fact that it’s a pretty goofball premise that no one was exactly looking to revisit. It looks fantastic in large part because it’s directed by Niels Arden Oplev. Rarely has there been a director that has managed to leave people scratching their heads so much over nearly a decade. Rocketing onto the scene (the American scene anyway) with 2009’s The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo, Niels then followed with the lackluster Dead Man Down, a pretty cool foreign film, Speed Walking, a few episodes of television, and now a remake of a 1990 cornball, »

Yes, No, Maybe So: "Flatliners" trailer

by Robert Balkovich

Today in "time is a flat circle" news we've got the trailer for the reboot/remake of the 1990 Julia Roberts, Kiefer Sutherland thriller Flatliners. The plot of this film seems to mirror the plot of the original movie: a group of med students attempt to discover the secrets of death by killing themselves and then bringing themselves back to life which, of course, has unintended supernatural consequences. This version stars Ellen Page, Diego Luna, and Nina Debrov of The Vampire Diaries fame. The trailer and a Yes, No, Maybe So are after the jump »

Flatliners Remake Trailer Hits The Internet

14 June 2017 5:00 AM, PDT | LRMonline.com | See recent LRM Online news »

Coming Soon brings us word that Sony Pictures has released the poster, and trailer, to the new movie Flatliners, the remake of the 1990 Joel Shumacher film which starred Julia Roberts and Keifer Sutherland. The remake stars Ellen Page and Diego Luna. The story centers around five college students who perform a dangerous experiment that tries to prove there is life after death. As each has a unique near death experience, they deal with the sins of their past while also dealing with the consequences of playing with the afterlife.

I am one of the few folks who tries to give remakes a chance. The original Flatliners movie wasn't bad at all. It wasn't a classic of film history, but the premise for the movie was a unique idea. What would happen if people could find a way to prove that there is life after death? What would be the consequences of their actions? »

Coming Distractions: Ellen Page probably hopes you’re dying to see this trailer for the Flatliners remake

13 June 2017 11:04 AM, PDT | avclub.com | See recent The AV Club news »

It’s the question that has haunted humankind, plagued our philosophers, and inspired countless works of art, intellect, and science, all while inspiring our greatest minds to look beyond the rational world: Why can’t we make up our minds about remakes? Actually, the question is, “What happens to you after you die?,” but right now we’re more curious about the status of remakes. We all bemoan them on a regular basis, but they make for some of our favorite films, and we all have at least one story we’d love to see get a remake. (Why, yes, we are talking about the 1984 Dennis Quaid thriller Dreamscape.) And now, Flatliners enters the remake world, with the Ellen Page-starring 2017 version of the old Kiefer Sutherland/Julia Roberts hit. (Sutherland even shows up in this one to lend his grizzled seal of approval.)

Ellen Page, Diego Luna, Nina Dobrev Experiment With Death in ‘Flatliners’ Trailer

13 June 2017 9:48 AM, PDT | Variety - Film News | See recent Variety - Film News news »

Ellen Page and Diego Luna’s push into the afterlife backfires big time in the first trailer for Sony’s “Flatliners” remake.

Page plays a medical student who joins four of her classmates — Luna (“Rogue One: A Star Wars Story”), Nina Dobrev, James Norton, and Kiersey Clemons — in post-midnight experiments of stopping their hearts for short periods of time to get first-hand glimpses of the afterlife. The initial forays seem pleasant enough, but the afterlife seemingly bites back with increasingly disturbing images, based on their sins from the past, and begins intruding their everyday lives.

The word “murderer” appears at the bottom of a pool while one character is swimming. Page’s character sees a car tumbling off a rural bridge into a river and cries “I’m going crazy,” and Luna declares, “This experiment needs to end.”

Flatliners” is directed by Niels Arden Oplev from a screenplay by »

Flatliners Remake Trailer: It's a Good Day to Die

13 June 2017 9:03 AM, PDT | MovieWeb | See recent MovieWeb news »

It's a good day to bring a 90s cult classic back from the dead. Well, as good a day as any, at least. Get ready for some defibrillators, heart monitors and Diego Luna with a mullet, because after a very long time of knowing this movie is happening and not a whole lot to show for it, the very first trailer for the Flatliners remake has arrived. Good or bad, this looks to be a very different spin, at least tonally, to what director Joel Schumacher gave us in 1990.

Sony Pictures released the trailer for the Flatliners remake today, giving us our first look at director Niels Arden Oplev's take on the premise that was first introduced to us in 1990. While the shell of this version seems very much the same, medical students intentionally stopping their hearts in order to see what happens to them after they die, this »
