The first trailer for the new take on Poltergeist arrived back in February, offering the first proper look at the new family being bothered by some pesky supernatural troublemakers. Here’s the latest promo, which brings some new footage.
This time around, the focus is on the Bowen family, dad Eric (Sam Rockwell), mum Amy (Rosemarie DeWitt) and kids Kendra (Saxon Sharbino), Griffin (Kyle Catlett) and Madison (Kennedi Clements), the latter of whom becomes the main focus of supernatural attention. Moving into a suburban home, they discover it needs a bit more than just a coat of paint and some new furniture: it’s also linked to the spirit world through a variety of portals.
With director Gil Kenan wrangling the haunting action, this new film also features Evil Dead duo Sam Raimi as the producers, looking to ramp up the madness. Can overcome the natural suspicion that floats around reboots like an evil mist, and triumph? Only time will tell but the movie will be out on May 22.
