‘Poltergeist’ Trailer and Poster: They’re Here (Again)

Poltergeist Madison Bowen (Kennedi Clements) TV apparitions

Yesterday, we got our first look at Poltergeist, director Gil Kenan‘s reboot for the 1982 film.

Today, the first trailer for the upcoming movie has been released. Watch it here below, along with the first poster in the image gallery.

In the new film about a family whose home is possessed by spirits, Sam Rockwell and Rosemarie DeWitt play the parents of 8-year-old Madison Bowen (Kennedi Clements), with Jared Harris as the supernatural researcher and clairvoyant who helps the family. Jane Adams, Saxon Sharbino, Kyle Catlett, and Nicholas Braun also star.

As with Steven Spielberg’s original, this version will make you frightened of your television – here’s what producer Sam Raimi told USA Today about the remake:

Like the original, television is a conduit from the spirit world. But in 2015, the screens are bigger, packing more menace. And there are screens throughout the house.

“The original film commented on how we’ve let television get out of control, babysitting our kids,” says Raimi. “It’s only gotten worse with the handheld portable devices. Screens are everywhere.”

The original film terrified me as a child, thanks to its scary clown and other ways the children in the movie were terrorized. It made me afraid clowns, TV static, and my house, as well as gave me an irrational fear of ancient Indian burial grounds. The new trailer shows that this remake is very close to the original, where once again, the children are at the center of the ghosts’ hostilities. I’m not sure how frightened today’s audiences are going to be of this new film, considering how many modern haunted house movies were inspired by the original Poltergeist. The new Poltergiest has Evil Dead creator on as producer, so that right there is reason enough to give this movie a shot.

And speaking about being afraid of your home, Fox and MGM have created the viral site /, where you can enter the promo POLTERGEIST to find out if someone has died in your own house! You can also read real stories about homes where people died, including those that made the news. Lovely, right?

Legendary filmmaker Sam Raimi (“Spiderman,” “Evil Dead”, “The Grudge”) and director Gil Kenan (“Monster House”) contemporize 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.

Poltergeist opens nationwide on July 24, 2015 in 3D.
