Flatliners Remake Trailer

"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, direct from Sony's YouTube:

You can also still watch the the first official trailer for the Flatliners remake here, to see more footage.

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. Flatliners is directed by Danish filmmaker Niels Arden Oplev, of films We Shall Overcome, Worlds Apart, Dead Man Down, Speed Walking, the pilot for "Mr. Robot", and the original The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo previously. The screenplay is written by Ben Ripley; based on a story by Peter Filardi. Sony will release Flatliners in theaters starting September 29th this fall. Thoughts?

    I like Ellen Page, but this story is still nothing special to me. Just like it was the older version ...
  • Bo
    Hate to see such a talented director as this reduced to this kind of American fare. His original Dragon Tattoo was a superior movie and much better than Fincher's Hollywood version. Still, a guy has to work so he's working. Like Alex said, maybe it'll be good. I'll pass and wait for it on cable.
    A re-imagining of FINAL DESTINATION.

    I don't think Ellen Page has successfully transitioned from her starring turn in "young roles" such as Hard Candy and Juno to more adult fare like Inception or this movie (based on the trailer). Movie looks weak to me and I suspect it offers little to nothing new over the original.

    So which actor is playing the part of Kevin Bacon's awesome flowing hair??? That "do" was a star in it's own right. Seriously though, feels like a remake for a younger generation that can't put down the smart phone for very long. Just my opinion.
  • Has anyone else noticed that the posters aren't really...well...flatlining? FAIL. Also, this movie was semi-cool and romanticized back in the 90's because of it's cast, but this looks to be as mediocre as the first. Pretty solid cast... but flawed script and execution? NETFLIX IT IS!
