First Trailer for New Stephen King Adaptation 'Mr. Harrigan's Phone'
"My Grandma always used to say: a person shouldn't call out unless they want an answer." Netflix has revealed the first trailer for Mr. Harrigan's Phone, another creepy, mysterious Stephen King adaptation from the streamer. Remember how good Gerald's Game was? Sounds like just the right treat for this year's Halloween season. A boy and an aging billionaire bond over books — and their first iPhones. When the man passes, their mysterious connection refuses to die as the two continue to communicate through the iPhone. From Ryan Murphy, Blumhouse Film and Stephen King comes a supernatural coming-of-age story, starring Donald Sutherland and Jaeden Martell. The supporting cast also includes Kirby Howell-Baptiste, Joe Tippett, Colin O’Brien, Cyrus Arnold, Thomas Francis Murphy, & Peggy J. Scott. This looks dang good!! I dig the use of the phone vibration sound as part of the score in the trailer - nice work, Netflix.
