Almost exactly 30 years after Mary Lambert turned Stephen King’s Pet Sematary into a feature film, Paramount is unleashing Dennis Widmyer and Kevin Kolsch‘s new adaptation this coming April, and the second trailer crawled its way out of the grave this morning.
Much of the trailer is made up of footage we’ve already seen, but what’s notable about this second look at the film is that it spoils a plot twist that sure would’ve been nice to have been surprised by come April. So that’s your warning to avoid this one entirely, if you were hoping to go into the new Pet Sematary as blind as possible. The problem with too much marketing, eh?
Oh and also check out a new poster underneath the trailer.
Twins Hugo Lavoie and Lucas Lavoie play Gage Creed, with Jeté Laurence as Ellie Creed. Jason Clarke and Amy Seimetz are our new Louis and Rachel Creed, with John Lithgow as Jud Crandall. Obssa Ahmed is playing Victor Pascow, with Alyssa Brooke Levine as Zelda.
In Pet Sematary, adapted by Jeff Buhler…
“Based on the novel by Stephen King, Pet Sematary follows Dr. Louis Creed, who, after relocating with his wife Rachel 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, setting off a perilous chain reaction that unleashes an unfathomable evil with horrific consequences.”
Return to the Pet Sematary on April 5, 2019.
