The trailer for those who haven't noticed it yet:


I quite like it. The most noticeable new element is the animal masks procession. It gives a whole new vibe to it, I wonder if it's a major new element to the story - I hope so. I wouldn't mind more of a reinvention, as the original is relatively close to the novel.

I am over the moon that this is coming out in April! I'm teaching in the spring, so that means I get to take my class to see it!!!!!!
I agree with Gerald, I think the trailer looks terrific. Phenomenal job setting up the story in the trailer. The animal masks reminded me of the children's trial scene in Castle Rock. Very interesting.

Castle Rock isn't available here yet. There's such an emphasis on the animal masks in the trailer, that I get the feeling it will be a main plot point. Could it be that they completely changed the background of the way the dead animals and people come back to life? That the story is basically the same, but there is a different folklore behind it, something different than Micmac indians and the Wendigo?
