It's been nearly fourteen years since Gore Verbinski's ("Pirates of the Caribbean") remake of "The Ring" terrified audiences stateside -- eleven since its sequel bored most of them -- and now, a trailer for the third in the series has hit the Internet.
Simply titled "Rings," the first preview seems to include all the attributes a Ring film requires: creepy amateur VHS footage, leaky walls, desperate characters in a race against time to stop a deadly curse, that wrinkly ghost girl, etc.
Check out the trailer along with an official synopsis below:
"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…"
Based on the 1998 Japanese film adaptation of Kozi Suzuki's novel, "Ringu," "The Ring" centered on a woman's investigation of a mysterious and deadly tape with supernatural origins, and went on to gross a whopping $249.3 million worldwide.
Directed by F. Javier Gutierrez and starring Matilda Lutz, Alex Roe and Vincent D'Onofrio ("Daredevil"), "Rings" will hopefully spook audiences on October 28.
