Official U.S. Trailer for Room 237

Chris Savage

I am sure many of you cannot wait to view this little documentary, Room 237. So with the release date now set in stone for March 29th, we have finally scored the official U.S. trailer for the film, and you can view it below.

Synopsis: “After the box office failure of Barry Lyndon, Stanley Kubrick decided to embark on a project that might have more commercial appeal. The Shining, Stephen King’s biggest critical and commercial success yet, seemed like a perfect vehicle. After an arduous production, Kubrick’s film received a wide release in the summer of 1980; the reviews were mixed, but the box office, after a slow start, eventually picked up. End of story? Hardly. In the 30 years since the film’s release, a considerable cult of Shining devotees has emerged, fans who claim to have decoded the film’s secret messages addressing everything from the genocide of Native Americans to a range of government conspiracies. Rodney Ascher’s wry and provocative Room 237 fuses fact and fiction through interviews with cultists and scholars, creating a kaleidoscopic deconstruction of Kubrick’s still-controversial classic.

The film stars Bill Blakemore, Geoffrey Cocks, Juli Kearns, John Fell Ryan, Jay Weidner, and Buffy Visick.

        Am I the only one annoyed by the fact that this is the second trailer in which they don’t even show anything from the actual movie? I get it. They’re doing it on purpose. But it’s really getting on my nerves. That’s all. Haha

          its a direct play on the trailer for The Shining but you are right its focused heavily on critical comments and very little on much else.
