Rings, the sequel to the US version of The Ring, opens in the UK tomorrow (3 February) and to try to entice you into the cinemas to watch it, Paramount has released a couple of clips from the movie, including the opening three minutes. And yes, that is Zach Roerig from The Vampire Diaries and Lizzie Brocheré from The Strain and Falling Water having Samara-related problems on a plane in the first clip.
Rings is directed by F Javier Gutiérrez and written by David Loucka, Jacob Aaron Estes and Akiva Goldsman. Here’s the official blurb:
“A new chapter in the beloved Ring horror franchise. 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…”
