The Ring franchise began with The Ring in 2002, itself an American remake of the Japanese film Ringu. And although the Ringu franchise has branched out particularly well in Japan, the American counterpart has been dead since 2005’s The Ring Two.
That is, until a third installment titled Rings was announced. And today we have our first official trailer. So, check it out along with the official plot below:
A young woman becomes worried about her boyfriend when he explores a dark subculture surrounding a mysterious videotape said to kill the watcher seven days after he has viewed it. She sacrifices herself to save her boyfriend and in doing so makes a horrifying discovery: there is a “movie within the movie” that no one has ever seen before…
Rings will hit theaters October 28, 2016.
