Eerie New UK Re-Release Trailer for Stanley Kubrick's 'The Shining'
Jack is back. The BFI have unveiled a brand new trailer for the upcoming UK re-release of the horror classic The Shining, directed by the one-and-only Stanley Kubrick. A full 144-minute digitally restored version of the film will be screening in a few UK cinemas around Halloween - you can find theater listings here. While I assume we've all seen this film and are quite familiar with most of it, it's always fun to watch a new trailer for a beloved classic film. Even Rodney Ascher, director of the Room 237 doc, commented on Twitter: "Impressive new trailer!" The Shining stars Jack Nicholson, Shelley Duvall, Danny Lloyd, Scatman Crothers, Barry Nelson, Philip Stone & Joe Turkel. Redrum. "Demands to be seen on the big screen."
Here's the new re-release trailer for Stanley Kubrick's The Shining, direct from BFI's YouTube:
A family heads to an isolated hotel for the winter where an evil and spiritual presence influences the father into violence, while his psychic son sees horrific forebodings from the past and of the future. The Shining is the 10th feature film directed by legendary filmmaker Stanley Kubrick (made 12 years after he made 2001: A Space Odyssey), co-written by Kubrick & Diane Johnson. It's adapted from Stephen King's novel of the same name. The Shining was first released May of 1980 in the US, before arriving in the UK in October that year. The BFI is re-releasing "a magnificent new digital transfer from Warner Bros" of the US version of The Shining in UK theaters, running 144 minutes in total, which is "24 minutes longer than the European version previously seen."
