Netflix's King Adaptation

With no advance warning, the debut trailer for Netflix’s adaptation of Stephen King’s 1992 novel Gerald’s Game has arrived, and it sends a married couple’s idyllic vacation straight to hell thanks to a pair of handcuffs.

The film stars Carla Gugino and Bruce Greenwood. Henry Thomas, Carel Struycken, Chiara Aurelia and Kate Siegel co-stars.

“Gerald’s Game follows Gerald and Jessie Burlingame, who have gone to their summer home on a warm weekday in October for a romantic interlude. After being handcuffed to her bedposts, Jessie tires of her husband’s games, until things take an unexpectedly tragic turn. Still handcuffed, she is trapped and alone. Painful memories from her childhood bedevil her. Her only company is a hungry stray dog and the voices that populate her mind. As night comes, she is unsure whether it is her imagination or if she has another companion: someone watching her from the corner of her dark bedroom.”

Flanagan adapted the script from King’s novel with his writing partner Jeff Howard. Watch the trailer below.
