Rings is the follow-up to the 2002 flick The Ring and its 2005 sequel The Ring Two. It somehow still revolves around a videotape circulating in 2017 that leaves the viewer marked to die in seven days. First of all, is it still a tape? Second of all, where are these people finding a VCR to watch a tape that might kill them? Third of all, holy shit the possibilities for Samara to come at you with all of the screens in our lives now.

Rings opens this Friday and is probably not very good. As such, Paramount has released the first three minutes of the flick to the interwebs. It involves an idiot on a plane that watched the tape.

Paramount has also released this clip of Johnny Galecki (He will always be David from Roseanne to me) watching the tape for the first time.

Yep, that’s how I remember the whole thing.

A new chapter in the beloved RING horror franchise. 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…

Matilda Lutz, Alex Roe, Johnny Galecki, Aimee Teegarden, Bonnie Morgan and Vincent D’Onofrio star in the movie, which was pushed from October 2016 to open this Friday, February 3rd. Which is a totally good sign, kids.
