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.

“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”).

We have to say this movie sounds riveting! Anything from Stephen King is definitely going to be a hit!

On Tuesday, Paramount Pictures debuted the famous cartoon’s design changes with a new official trailer for the Sega video game-inspired film, after initial reactions to the original design released in April caused an internet frenzy. Fans blasted the old trailer for portraying Sonic as “human-like” and were particularly upset about Sonic’s realistic looking teeth and shapely legs, Vulture reported.

Now, the electric blue hedgehog has been reimagined to look more like the traditional cartoon character — boasting larger, more animated eyes, white gloves instead of white hands, thin legs and all-around less human-like features.

Director Jeff Fowler confirmed in April that the movie would be delayed by three months after receiving backlash about Sonic’s appearance.

Check out a few fan reactions:

We have to say we are here for this makeover and the studio listening to the fans. Sonic The Hedgehog is one of the greatest and most beloved characters in the world we always want him done right! We will keep you posted as more news about the movie comes forward.

Nothing’s Black & White in “Black & Blue” (@BlackBlueMovie)! Naomie Harris (@NaomieHarris) SHINES!

Our nation is in turmoil. We live in a time where distrust in law enforcement is at an all time high thanks to police brutality, racism, and general apathy. The notion of “bad cops” and closing ranks when it comes to law enforcement has become so prevalent that it seems to be the norm. However, there are good police officers out there, they just have to be willing to take a stand. “Black & Blue,” starring Naomie Harris, tells the story of Alicia West, a rookie cop in the Ninth Ward of New Orleans, a crime ridden area that never quite recovered from the devastation of Hurricane Katrina. Alicia, having left to serve two tours in the army, returns wanting to keep her hometown safe. However, nothing is as she quite remembers including the friends she once knew and the officers she serves with. Viewed as an outsider she witnesses a crooked cop executing local gang members to cover up they were working for him. Alicia records it on body cam and a manhunt pursues as she must get the footage back to the precinct before a group of corrupt cops and gangster can take her down.

This film was EVERYTHING! At first glance you would not think Naomie can be an action star, but she pulled it off in this thriller. The film and story are so powerful and relatable. As minorities in the country, many of us have either lost faith or questioned if the police are here to keep us safe or are power hungry and oppressive. Pairing her with Tyrese was also genius. In this film we find him portraying, “Milo ‘Mouse’ Jackson,”  a former ex-con with PTSD from horrible run-ins with the police. The two are quite the dynamic duo as they fight for justice, understanding, empathy, and truly for their lives.
