Still irrevocably scarred by the trauma he endured as a child at the Overlook, Dan Torrance (Ewan McGregor) has fought to find some semblance of peace. But that peace is shattered when he encounters Abra (Kyliegh Curran), 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 (Rebecca Ferguson) 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.

Directed by Mike Flanagan (Netflix’s THE HAUNTING OF HILL HOUSE, OCULUS), DOCTOR SLEEP acts as both an adaptation of King’s novel as well as a sequel to Stanley Kubrick’s iconic 1980 film, THE SHINING.

DOCTOR SLEEP will release to DVD, Blu-ray & 4K Ultra-HD on February 19th.
