The trailer begins by re-establishing the basic story setting for the movie. A girl watches a VHS tape and then receives a phone call, which whispers her the words, “seven days”. The girl then goes on to experience a terrible death after suffering the worst week of her life.
The reboot seems to work on the principle of its older movies, but has amplified the visuals to greater extremes. Matilda Lutz becomes the first victim shown in the trailer. After being cursed, she suffers with peeling skin and a hairball which churns out of her stomach.
The trailer ends with the shot of an entire passenger airline crashing after being cursed.
Rings is slated for release on October 28, 2016 in the United States of America.
