CinemaCon attendees were shown an extended trailer for Insidious: The Red Door. The film is set to reach theatres in July
Last week, Sony Pictures unveiled a trailer for the fifth film in the Insidious franchise, Insidious: The Red Door, which is set to reach theatres on July 7th. You can check that out in the embed above. As you may have gathered from other recent articles here on JoBlo, our own Chris Bumbray is currently attending CinemaCon, the official convention of the National Association of Theatre Owners, in Las Vegas – and during the Sony presentation, he and other attendees had the chance to watch an extended trailer for Insidious: The Red Door.
Bumbray reports that the extended trailer “sets up the premise of the movie. The kid from the original, Dalton, is now haunted by The Further and the film seems to center around him. It actually looks pretty terrifying, but we didn’t see much more than the trailer that came out last week.” So the good news is that there’s another trailer for Insidious: The Red Door, but the disappointing news is that if/when we see it, we shouldn’t expect to see much more than what we’ve already seen.
Insidious: The Red Door marks the feature directorial debut of Insidious and Insidious: Chapter 2 star Patrick Wilson. The screenplay was written by Halloween Kills co-writer Scott Teems, based on an idea from Leigh Whannell, who created the franchise with James Wan. The story catches up with the family from the first two films, the Lamberts, ten years after the end of Insidious 2. Josh Lambert heads east to drop his son Dalton off at an idyllic, ivy-covered university. However, Dalton’s college dream becomes a nightmare when the repressed demons of his past suddenly return to haunt them both.
Wilson is reprising the role of Josh Lambert, with Rose Byrne returning as his wife Renai, Ty Simpkins as their son Dalton, and Andrew Astor as their son Foster. Also in the cast are Sinclair Daniel (Madam Secretary), Peter Dager (Demente Criminal), and Hiam Abbass (Blade Runner 2049).
Insidious: The Red Door is coming to us from Screen Gems and Stage 6 Films. Jason Blum is producing the film for Blumhouse, alongside James Wan, Leigh Whannell, and Oren Peli. Steven Schneider, Ryan Turek, and Brian Kavanaugh Jones serve as executive producers.
When Insidious: The Red Door was first announced, Wilson said, “I’m honored and thrilled to be at the helm of the next Insidious installment, which will provide an amazing chance to unpack everything the Lamberts went through a decade ago, as well as deal with the consequences of their choices. Directing the movie is both professionally and personally a full circle moment for me, and I am extremely grateful to be entrusted in continuing to tell this frightening and haunting story. Into the further we go…“
