The world is a hungry place, a dangerous place. Watch the 40 Years Later featurette for Stephen King's #DoctorSleepMovie now.
“Doctor Sleep” continues the story of Danny Torrance, 40 years after his terrifying stay at the Overlook Hotel in The Shining. Ewan McGregor, Rebecca Ferguson and newcomer Kyliegh Curran star in the supernatural thriller, directed by Mike Flanagan, from his own screenplay based upon the novel by Stephen King.

Still irrevocably scarred by the trauma he endured as a child at the Overlook, Dan Torrance has fought to find some semblance of peace. But that peace is shattered when he encounters Abra, a courageous teenager with her own powerful extrasensory gift, known as the “shine.” Instinctively recognizing that Dan shares her power, Abra has sought him out, desperate for his help against the merciless Rose the Hat and her followers, The True Knot, who feed off the shine of innocents in their quest for immortality.

Forming an unlikely alliance, Dan and Abra engage in a brutal life-or-death battle with Rose. Abra’s innocence and fearless embrace of her shine compel Dan to call upon his own powers as never before—at once facing his fears and reawakening the ghosts of the past.

Stephen King's “Doctor Sleep” stars Ewan McGregor (“Star Wars: Episodes I, II & III,” “T2 Trainspotting”) as Dan Torrance, Rebecca Ferguson (the “Mission: Impossible” films, “The Greatest Showman”) as Rose the Hat, and Kyliegh Curran, in her major feature film debut, as Abra. The main ensemble cast also includes Carl Lumbly, Zahn McClarnon, Emily Alyn Lind, Bruce Greenwood, Jocelin Donahue, Alex Essoe and Cliff Curtis.

Trevor Macy and Jon Berg produced the film, with Roy Lee, Scott Lumpkin, Akiva Goldsman and Kevin McCormick serving as executive producers.

Flanagan’s behind-the-scene creative team was led by director of photography Michael Fimognari (“The Haunting of Hill House”), production designers Maher Ahmad (“Get Hard”) and Elizabeth Boller (“Hush”), and costume designer Terry Anderson (“Den of Thieves”). The music score is composed by The Newton Brothers (“The Haunting of Hill House”).

There are different points of view regarding the series. Some people think that TV shows are a waste of time and take them absolutely seriously. Others argue that TV shows are a separate form of cinema art. Yes, no doubt, the long time duration of the series cannot be considered a plus. But these days, people are attracted to just that. They like to watch their favorite actors. Throughout the series, the actors become so close to us that it is difficult to imagine an evening without them.

The history of the series originates in the 1930s. At that time, the series played on the radio for a long time. But despite the low quality of shooting series, a large number of people approved of the "new art". Of course, today's series are much different from the past. All of them are crammed with various special effects, expensive and chic costumes and bright makeup. The plots are so fascinating that it’s hard to come off at least for a second. After so many years, you can watch your favorite series on the Internet, and not wait for the next series on TV.

Now there is no time frame; you can watch TV shows at your convenience. You can choose the appropriate quality, voice acting and even turn on subtitles. Now directors, producers create artistic scripts, work out every detail. Multi-episodes are so integrated into our lives that we cannot imagine what we would do without them. The purpose of the series is to attract the attention of viewers, as long as possible to keep the screens. And in my opinion this goal is fulfilled, rather exceeded!
