20th Century Fox and MGM have provided ComingSoon.net with an exclusive new Poltergeist preview featuring director Gil Kenan (Monster House) and producer Sam Raimi (Spider-Man, Evil Dead, The Grudge) talking about the May 22 release. You can watch the video below and you can still check out the previously-released trailer here.
Poltergeist is a contemporary take of the classic tale about a family whose suburban home is haunted by evil forces. When the terrifying apparitions escalate their attacks and hold the youngest daughter captive, the family must come together to rescue her before she disappears forever.
Written by David Lindsay-Abaire, Poltergeist boasts an impressive cast, including Sam Rockwell (The Way, Way Back, Iron Man 2), Rosemarie DeWitt (Kill the Messenger, The Odd Life of Timothy Green), Jared Harris (Sherlock Holmes: A Game of Shadows, “Mad Men”), Saxon Sharbino (Trust Me, “Touch”), and Jane Adams (“Hung,” Eternal Sunshine of the Spotless Mind), along with 8-year-old Kennedi Clements as Madison, a play on the iconic Carol Anne (Heather O’Rourke) from the Tobe Hooper original.
Produced by Steven Spielberg, the original Poltergeist hit theaters in 1982 and was followed by Poltergeist II: The Other Side in 1986 and Poltergeist III in 1988.
