Watch: First Full Trailer for F. Javier Gutiérrez's Horror Sequel 'Rings'
"You've opened up a door… And now no one is safe." Paramount has released the first full trailer for Rings, the third film in the Ring series, originally a remake of the Japanese horror film. The second film was released back in 2005, three years after the first Ring hit theaters in 2002. This new one picks up 13 years after the first film and it's just as creepy. The cast includes Laura Wiggins, Aimee Teegarden, Johnny Galecki, Lizzie Brocheré, Alex Roe, Zach Roerig, and Bonnie Morgan as Samara. This looks like another eerie entry in the horror series. The blind man giving her information is pretty cool, I just hope the rest of it is actually good. The plane sequence at the end is also cool, but I think that's the opening scene.
Here's the first official trailer (+ poster) for F. Javier Gutiérrez's Rings, direct from YouTube:
And here's an alternate international version of the first trailer for Rings, also from YouTube:
A young woman becomes worried about her boyfriend when he explores a dark subculture surrounding a mysterious videotape said to kill the watcher seven days after he has viewed it. She sacrifices herself to save her boyfriend and in doing so makes a horrifying discovery: there is a "movie within the movie" that no one has ever seen before… The Ring Two continued 6 months after the first movie and this film picks up 13 years after the first movie. Rings is directed by Spanish filmmaker F. Javier Gutiérrez, of crime film Before the Fall (Tres días) previously. Follow him on Twitter @FJ6utierrez. The screenplay is credited to Jacob Aaron Estes, Akiva Goldsman and David Loucka; based on the novel by Kôji Suzuki. Paramount will release Rings in theaters starting October 28th this fall, just in time for Halloween. Intrigued to see this?

So uninspired. The beginning jumps too far into it too soon. They're even using the same shock factors from the original. They should've done what Blair Witch did after a failed sequel. Wait 15 years, announce a movie called The Engagement Ring and then when people go to watch a screening of it, surprise the crowd by making it a found footage sequel to Verbinski's Ring.

I think that this scary video should be sent to guys on Wall Street. Just for fun ...

Why am I not surprised. I hope this stuff stops making money, so they stop making needless sequels, but...it probably will. *LE SIGH*

Looks like shit, but I was never a fan of this series in the first place so whatever.

Well, they certainly seem to be kicking a dead horse, at least that's what I thought until I watched the trailer. It actually looks pretty good. The first one was great because it was fresh, unique, original and different. So they seem to be kicking that dead horse pretty good. Why not if the folks keep showing up and they keep doing a good job of it? Righto?
