Do you want to see Mike Flanagan‘s Doctor Sleep, one of this fall’s biggest films, early and just in time for Halloween? Well, Fandango is allowing you to do just that, as they're bringing it to theaters nine days early!
Fandango is teaming up with Warner Bros. to offer exclusive early access screenings to see this fall’s major horror event, Stephen King’s Doctor Sleep, the chilling continuation of Danny’s story from The Shining.
Fans can get a first look at the film at approximately 400 theaters nationwide and nine days before the film's November 8th U.S. theatrical release, on October 30th, Devil's Night! Participating theater chains include AMC Theatres, Regal, Cinemark, Marcus Theatres, Harkins Theatres, and many more.
"We’re excited to work with Warner Bros to offer film fans their first chance to see ‘Stephen King’s Doctor Sleep’ on October 30, just in time for Halloween," says Fandango President Paul Yanover. "With our early access screenings, we are committed to ‘eventizing’ the movies and working closely with studios and filmmakers to surprise and delight moviegoers."
Doctor Sleep stars Ewan McGregor, Rebecca Ferguson and newcomer Kyliegh Curran.
In the film, 40 years after his terrifying stay at the Overlook Hotel, Danny Torrance (McGregor) is still irrevocably scarred by the trauma he endured as a child. His hope to find 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.
Fandango also debuted the brand new fan art poster by artist Chris Christodoulou, seen below.
