Stephen King’s works are experiencing a resurgence right now. From the critically panned Dark Tower to the successful and intriguing TV series adaptation of The Mist, it seems like the sky is the limit in terms of what else we will see adapted for our viewing pleasure. Now it looks like Stephen King’s supense novel Gerald’s Game is getting some love.
Today Netflix released a first look image and the trailer for their upcoming Stephen King adaptation – Gerald’s Game.
On the surface, the trailer starts off rather simply. A married couple is trying to spice up a stagnating marriage, but everything goes horribly awry when the husband ends up having a heart attack and dying. At first, the woman thinks that he’s just playing around. As we continue to watch the trailer, it becomes apparent that this isn’t the game she was expecting.
The official synopsis for the film is below:
While trying to spice up her marriage in a remote lake house, a woman must suddenly fight to survive when she is left handcuffed to the bed.
Gerald’s Game is directed by Mike Flanagan and stars Carla Gugino, Bruce Greenwood, and Chiara Aurelia.
