the langoliers remake
The plan works; Nick disappears as the plane passes the rift, and Brian wakes shortly after to land the plane safely in Los Angeles. In the introduction, King says that, while a collection of four novellas like Different Seasons, this book is more strictly horror with elements of the supernatural. Co-signed.

While not without its fair share of thrills, The Langoliers suffers from a meandering pace and dubious characterizations. Holy hell I didn't realize Dean Stockwell was still alive! But towards the end FX would have saved the day. Even if that means diverging slightly from King's original ideas. When found, he stabs Dinah and Don with a knife, killing the latter. In addition to Engle, the other passengers include: Nick Hopewell, a mysterious Englishman; Laurel Stevenson, a schoolteacher on vacation; Don Gaffney, a tool and die worker on his way to meet his new granddaughter; Albert Kaussner, a violinist on his way to a music school in Boston; Bethany Sims, a girl whose estranged family is planning on sending her to a drug rehab; Bob Jenkins, a mystery-novel author; Dinah Bellman, a blind girl on her way to Boston to undergo optic surgery; Rudy Warwick, a perpetually sleepy businessman with a ravenous appetite, and Craig Toomey, an unstable business executive agitated over missing a scheduled meeting in Boston. As the plane approaches the time rift, Bob hastily recalls they had survived their first trip into the rift because they had been asleep, and could disappear if they pass through it awake. Pilot Brian Engle, deadheading on the flight, takes the controls; unable to contact any other airport, he decides to land the plane at Bangor International Airport because of its long runway.

The series was produced by Mitchell Galin and David R. Kappes, for Laurel Entertainment, Inc. Definitely deserves a reboot. In a hallucinatory state, Craig gleefully admits to his boss he cost his company $43 million, in hopes of escaping his father's abuse. They also discover that everything is dull and lifeless – they cannot light matches, and food and drink are tasteless. The plane takes off just as the Langoliers consume the entire airport beneath them. In a flashback, it is shown that Craig suffered from psychological abuse from his father, who instilled in him a fear of the "Langoliers", creatures who hunt down and devour the lazy and irresponsible. Rewatched it not that long ago and yea the special effects looked like something out of beast wars but man what a fantastic character study. Dat freezeframe at the end when they all jump in the air!

In a hallucinatory state, Craig gleefully admits to Tom Holby, his boss, he cost his company $43 million, in hopes of escaping his father's abuse. It's a great premise and I enjoyed the original, but there's definitely a classic film in there somewhere.

Bob calls these creatures Langoliers, creatures that feed on time which has passed. The passengers are concerned they seem to be in a similar state as they were in Bangor, but Bob, using the evidence in front of him, such as the return of sound and smell, believes they may be a few minutes ahead of everyone else, and they will shortly catch up to them. It's a great premise and I enjoyed the original, but there's definitely a classic film in there somewhere. The miniseries was filmed almost entirely in and around the Bangor International Airport in Bangor, Maine (author King's hometown) during the summer of 1994. As a panicked Craig comes running out of the airport, a weak Dinah is able to psychically convince him his meeting has moved from Boston to here. "[4] Variety found the first three hours of the series work well, but that it falls apart when the monster is revealed. Albert subdues Craig and Nick ties him up after realizing the gun's bullets are similarly affected by the strange environment and thus harmless, to the point that a bullet essentially bounces off Albert without actually hurting him. Brian fears the jet fuel will lack any ability to move the plane. It was directed and written by Tom Holland and based on the novella by Stephen King from the four-part anthology book Four Past Midnight.

I could see a remake getting picked up by hulu or netflix and would have faith theyd stick with a simliar vibe of thick dread and mystery all on the shoulders of the cast and setting vs a big budget hollywood movie thatd feel the need to punch it up with jump scares and shadow boogey men, essentially squishing the brilliant building tension. The plane takes off just as the Langoliers consume the entire airport beneath them. The delay leaves Craig vulnerable and he is eaten by the Langoliers. Would like more of Nick's military origins. As they board, the group witnesses strange creatures emerge from the horizon, consuming everything including the ground. The Langoliers is the upcoming remake movie adaptation of their own 2-part miniseries from 1995 based on their own novel from Stephen King's "Four Past Midnight". Good atmosphere (for a TV movie back then anyway).

As the others search the airport for any type of help, Craig becomes more unstable, and after finding a gun in an airport locker, takes Bethany hostage and demands they take off again. As Brian prepares the plane for take off, the others go to bring Craig back, but find he has escaped the bonds. Baxter Harris as Rudy Warwick, a businessman whose insatiable appetite and sleepiness helps Bob deduce situations on more than one occasion. Part of the group discover a "pocket of the present" on board the plane, and objects brought aboard from the airport regain their normal behavior. As they watch, they see other people start to blur into view, before they suddenly snap into the proper time stream. The "special" little girl is perhaps a bit too much of a staple in his stories, but fuck if it didn't play really well with the (other) bad guy. You didn't like the horrible cgi chainsaw meatballs? As they fly through the void, Dinah succumbs to her wound and dies whilst recalling the lines 'everything was beautiful, even things that were dead'. Just play the noises and hint at their existence.
