Newly Debuted Poltergeist Reboot Trailer Haunts the Internet

Poltergeist Reboot. Poster for Poltergeist. Top five Tobe Hooper films.

A teaser trailer for the Poltergeist reboot hit the web today. As always, we have it available for your consideration. Head inside for your first look after the break!

The upcoming reboot of Tobe Hooper’s Poltergeist was originally slated for release February 13, 2015. But news recently broke that the remake won’t be released until July 24, 2015. But in spite of the film’s theatrical release still being several months away, the studio released a teaser today. Check it out in the viewer below!

The remake is directed by Gil Kenan and written by  David Lindsay-Abaire. When I spoke to producer Rob Tapert about the upcoming reboot some time ago, he suggested that the idea was to introduce a new generation to Poltergeist and to improve upon some of the aspects of the picture that haven’t aged well in the years since the release of the original.

The plot of the 2015 reboot is expected to bear similarities to the original Poltergeist but diversify enough to warrant a re-imaginging. The characters will have different names and the film will be modernized for contemporary audiences. But the core concept of a family’s youngest child being taken away by supernatural entities will remain the same. We will keep you apprised as more details about the film’s plot become available.
