Flatliners Trailer Starring Ellen Page and Diego Luna

When it comes to remakes no one really expected (or wanted) to see, Flatliners has got to be up there. Joel Schumacher’s original 1990 film starred Kiefer Sutherland, Kevin Bacon, Julia Roberts, William Baldwin and Oliver Platt as medical students who secretly decide to explore the afterlife by temporarily killing themselves and then resuscitating each other. Past tragedies come back to haunt them, however, and soon their experiment gets out of hand. The new version is directed by Niels Arden Oplev (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo) and technically it is a sequel (Kiefer Sutherland apparently reprises his role although he is not seen in the trailer). It feels like they may be going in a more explicitly horrific direction this time around, but that could just be how they are marketing it. Flatliners stars Ellen Page, Diego Luna, James Norton, Nina Dobrev and Kiersey Clemons and it hits theatres on Sept. 29th. Check out the trailer after the jump and let us know what you think.
