A new one sheet for the Poltergeist reboot has been released and it features a retooled version of the creepy clown doll from the 1982 original film. As always, we have it available for you to check out. So, head inside for your first look after the break!
The upcoming reboot of Tobe Hooper’s Poltergeist was originally slated for release February 13 of this year. But as we told you previously, it will not be released until May 22, 2015. In the meantime, check out the newly debuted creepy clown character poster below. The new one sheet exclusively made its debut via Fandango earlier today.
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.
Like in the 1982 original, the core concept of a family’s youngest child being taken away by supernatural entities will remain in tact. We will keep you apprised as more details about the film’s plot and any other news as it become available.
