That kitty ain’t so cute no more! This morning, Paramount released the first full trailer for their “Pet Sematary” re-make, starring Jason Clarke, Amy Seimetz, and John Lithgow. Check out the video below:
Here is the official synopsis from Paramount:
Based on the seminal horror novel by Stephen King, (#StephenKing) #PetSematary follows Dr. Louis Creed (Jason Clarke), who, after relocating with his wife Rachel (Amy Seimetz) and their two young children from Boston to rural Maine, discovers a mysterious burial ground hidden deep in the woods near the family’s new home. When tragedy strikes, Louis turns to his unusual neighbor, Jud Crandall (#JohnLithgow), setting off a perilous chain reaction that unleashes an unfathomable evil with horrific consequences.
The original book was released in 1983, and adapted into a film for the first time in 1989. That original version starred Dale Midkiff, Fred Gwynne, Denise Crosby (AKA Tasha Yar from Star Trek: TNG), Brad Greenquist and Michael Lombard. It was a box office hit, costing $11.5 million and earning $57.5 million by the end of its run. Will this remake have the same luck? Time, and discerning audiences, will tell.
“Pet Sematary” will hit US theaters on April 5, 2019.
