“Flatliners” Is A Sequel, Not a Reboot
Apr 25, 2017

Back in March, Sony presented the full trailer for Flatliners 2 during its Cinemacon presentation. According to several news outlets the trailer showed the film more as an horror film than a suspense, as the original.

Also, according to the same sources, the trailer didn’t use the ‘Flatliners’ title during the presentation, which lead to speculation that it might have a different title or subtitle. And as you know, Kiefer Sutherland is in the cast. Last year he gave an interview discussing the character he’s playing in what we thought was a Flatliners remake:

“I play a professor at the medical university. It is never stated but it will probably be very clearly understood that I’m the same character I was in the original Flatliners but that I have changed my name and I’ve done some things to move on from the experiments that we were doing in the original film.”

So while we still wait for the trailer to come online, check below the description made during Cinemacon (via IBT).

In the trailer, Ellen Page’s character Courtney asks a boy if he wants to join her and have some fun. He agrees, only to learn she wants him and others to kill her for a science experiment.

Why try to die? Page’s character reveals she wants to learn what happens to the body after a near death experience. She asks them to stop her heart with a defibrillator just for a minute. When they’re successful, Courtney and her medical students friends all try it out, but it isn’t fun and games for long.

After a few trips back from the almost afterlife Page’s character and her pals, played by Nina Dobrev, James Norton and Kersey Clemons to name a few, all start to get visits from the beyond.

After showing Page and her friends suffer from otherworldly visions and visits from the undead, Courtney announces, “This is all my fault.” The trailer ends with her character getting dragged away by an unknown being.

The cast include Ellen Page and Diego Luna in the lead roles with James Norton, Nina Dobrev, Kiefer Sutherland and Kiersey Clemons rounding out the cast. They’ll all be under the direction of Niels Arden-Oplev, the director of the original Girl with the Dragon Tattoo adaptation. The film debuts on theaters this September 29.
