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, »

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 »

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? »

What happens when you die? It's one of those age-old questions we've always longed to answer... but what if there were a way to finally learn the truth? In Flatliners (in theaters September 29), a group of medical students will attempt just that, and in the process deliver an edge-of-your-seat thriller that confronts the chilling consequences of life’s greatest mystery. Fandango is excited to premiere first official trailer for Flatliners. Check it out below along with some brand-new images from the film. This isn't the first time we've seen a movie called Flatliners that deals in experimenting with near-death experiences.

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.)

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.”

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 »
What happens when you intentionally stage a near-death experience? Ptsd and more haunting nightmares than the human brain can possibly handle, that’s what.
That’s the predicament facing five best-in-class medical students in today’s first look trailer for Flatliners, Sony’s thrilling follow-up that’s set to flicker into life this September. Headed up by Ellen Page, Diego Luna (Rogue One), Nina Dobrev, James Norton and Kiersey Clemons, this long-in-development sequel is coming by way of Niels Arden Oplev, the Danish filmmaker best known for his work on the original Girl With the Dragon Tattoo series.
That means Oplev is well versed in reworking dark, brooding drama for a modern-day audience, but for all of the talent attached – behind the lens, and in front – today’s two trailers fall flat rather quickly. We begin with Ellen Page’s curious med student pushing the boundaries of life itself, only to emerge radically different. »

"It's a good day to die!" Sony Pictures has unveiled the first official trailer for the remake of Flatliners, the movie about medical students who temporarily stop their hearts in order to experience the afterlife. The original film was directed by Joel Schumacher and opened in 1990, sort of becoming a cult classic over the years. This new film is directed by Danish filmmaker Niels Arden Oplev, of the original The Girl with a Dragon Tattoo, 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. So this seems to have a few nods to Jacob's Ladder or even Final Destination, which is an interesting twist. Hopefully it turns out okay. Here's the first official trailer for Niels Arden Oplev's Flatliners, direct from Sony's YouTube: Five medical students, obsessed by the mystery of what »

Oh pretty med students, why are you always getting into such trouble? (In TV shows and movies, anyway). Flatliners, a "reimagining" of the 1990 film starring Kiefer Sutherland (who will be appearing in this updated version as well) follows a group of young med students who purposefully die and bring each other back to life to experience life after death ... without actually dying for keeps. What they find, instead, is a kind of netherworld that ends up opening a portal into their waking lives that incorperates past tragedies. The movie stars Ellen Page, Nina Dobrev, Diego Luna, and James Norton (… »

Sony has dropped the first trailer for Flatliners, the Niels Arden Oplov-helmed project based on the 1990 sci-fi Joel Schumacher film of the same name. The reboot, which has the tagline "you haven't lived until you've died," sees five medical students, obsessed by the mystery of what lies beyond the confines of life, embark on a daring and dangerous experiment by stopping their hearts for short periods of time. Each time triggers a near-death experience, giving them a… »
The original Flatliners from 1990 is an odd, often dark little thriller starring then-up-and-coming talent like Julia Roberts, Kevin Bacon and Kiefer Sutherland, each sporting those big, wavy, late-eighties hairdos. Now the film has gotten the remake treatment with Ellen Page, Kiersey Clemons, Diego Luna, Nina Dobrev, James Norton, and Sutherland himself, and the first trailer is here for your silent judgement.

The film, which is being slated as a sequel to the 1990 offering, 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 and even original cast member Kiefer Sutherland will pop up in the thriller which experiments with death and the afterlife with devastating effects.
The trailer seems to take a more sinister turn than the original after the new medical students are thrilled with the effects of the actual real death experience has on their lives, aided with death-inducing technology that has taken on a 21st-century overhaul. Unfortunate for them something that can’t »

What happens when we die? We thought “The Oa” figured that one out already, not to mention the original 1990 “Flatliners,” but there’s always more to be discovered. Ellen Page and her motley crew are about to take the science of the afterlife to an even darker place in “Flatliners,” which got a chilling first trailer today from Sony Pictures.
The movie stars Ellen Page (“Juno”), Nina Dobrev (“The Vampire Diaries”), Diego Luna (“Rogue One”), Kiersey Clemons (“Dope”), and James Norton (“Happy Valley”) as five medical students who become obsessed with discovering what really happens after death. They begin an experiment to stop their hearts for short periods of time in order to trigger a near-death experience and discover the truth about the afterlife. As the experiments lengthen, each student is haunted by phantoms of their past, and »

"Maybe we opened a door." They're intrigued by death rather than fearful of it, but just like the characters in Joel Schumacher's 1990 film, the medical students in the new Flatliners movie are in over their heads when it comes to the afterlife, as evidenced by Sony Pictures' first trailer for the film.
"In Flatliners, five medical students, obsessed by the mystery of what lies beyond the confines of life, embark on a daring and dangerous experiment: by stopping their hearts for short periods of time, each triggers a near-death experience – giving them a firsthand account of the afterlife. But as their experiments become increasingly dangerous, they are each haunted by the sins of their pasts, brought on by the paranormal consequences of trespassing to the other side."
