‘Rings’ Opens with Samara Appearing on a Plane; Watch the Opening Scene!

Samara returns to (limited) theaters this Thursday in Rings, the third film in the franchise that began with the 2002 The Ring remake.

With modern technology, it appears that Samara’s curse can easily go viral; in fact, many of the films trailers and TV spots elude to the fact that there’s a YouTube element. Paramount Pictures supplied us with the opening scene from the movie, which has two big reveals: There’s apparently a cult of people who share Samara’s video; they call themselves “the Sevens”. Also, apparently Samara can now reveal herself to a full flight of passengers. The clip opens with a kid bragging about watching the cursed video to the girl sitting next to him, then revealing that it’s been seven days since. Samara then arrives, turning all televisions to her video, and eventually shows herself as she climbs out of the pilot’s monitors. Frankly, it’s pretty ridiculous and so off-note that it’s not at all scary.


In Rings:

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…

Samara is a vengeful spirit (played by Bonnie Morgan) who comes after anyone that watches the franchise’s cursed video, which is now going viral.

F. Javier Gutierrez directs Rings, the third film in The Ring franchise, which began with the 2002 J-horror remake that was directed by Gore Verbinski (Pirates of the Caribbean). A sequel was released in 2005.

    terrible and over the top ridiculous

  • Biscoito18

    I haven’t seen Lizzie Brocheré since AHS Asylum.

  • pablitonizer

    Hahaha that was fun!

  • Funny and nice scene but not scary.

  • Fracassi

    He said he got a call from, “this voice,” if I heard correctly. How did she know it was, “some chick”?

  • Cockyxx

    Meh…they do the same thing that happened to Grudge. You start off with just a couple of people and a scary woman. First Ring was amazing, as well as the first Grudge. But a whole plane? So all the people died because of one guy who watched the tape? I hope it’s not actually part of the movie.

  • Jason Scarpelli

    Not watching it 🙂

  • Avoiding the clip but will be checking the film out Thursday night. My expectations are pretty low, but who knows? Rings could surprise us all.

    Samara crawling out of a tiny screen makes no sense. Does she grow in size once she’s out or is it just like this?

    • wil mcmullen

      Lol! Samara crawling from any sized screen wouldnt make sense. Its a movie.

  • bobbydevil

    Didn’t seem at all that he was bragging about seeing the tape…

  • wil mcmullen

    I am really looking forward to seeing this!

  • amir ezra

    This is just too over the top stupid.

  • DarkBree

    Matt Donovan, is that you? And about the clip, just no.

  • Alanmac

    Looks pretty bland but who knows? It may do a 180 after that scene.

  • abyx34

    I’m surprised she never crawled out of a cellphone screen, perhaps during her calls.

  • Forca85

    I don’t think it’s completely ridiculous. I mean two of Katie’s friends in part 1 died in a Car wreck offscreen from watching the tape at Shelter Mountain. Rachel reads it in a Newspaper. Would be interested to see if the whole Plane goes down or she just kills the guy and girl.

    I imagine Samara would show up in a reflection. In a Car’s Mirror or Puddle etc. If a TV isn’t around.

  • Oh crap, this looks even worse than “Samara 3D” AND “Sadako vs Kayako”…

  • Evan3

    Not sure if this was an abbreviated version of the opening or what, but if this is the true full opening, it was cut so poorly that it was virtually impossible to follow…. And how many out-of-date technologies is this thing going to rely on? Obviously, people are still watching VHS tapes in this movie, and now planes with every seat having a mini-TV? It’s been years since that was standard issue.

  • “Hey guys, have a free movie in numerous short clips, cutting out the boring bits in between”

  • LoveAnimation

    I have noticed that people often say that they want new, different and original stuff but most of the time when we get it people think its weird and stupid.
    The reason why people think this is ridiculous is obviously because people have not seen anything from the Rings movies done on a plane before and its not what people expect to see from this kind of horror stuff so because its new and different its stupid.

    • Hash-Slinging Slasher

      “new, different, original, and GOOD / GREAT stuff”


      Just because someone has an idea doesn’t make it good, and most times it’s probably bad. The inability to tell the difference is how bad movies get made. Samara crawling out of the screen in a cockpit is about as bad of an idea as Samara crawling out of the toilet in the bathroom. Where does it end? An Apple Watch? A baby’s diaper?

      • LoveAnimation

        When it comes to supernatural stuff you can do pretty much anything you want because there are no rules for what is possible or not possible and all the supernatural horror stuff that we has seen hundreds of times before does not make sense just as much her coming out of screen in the cockpit its just that we are used to seeing the other stuff so it feels normal and the cockpit is something new and unusual.

        Because its supernatural she should be able to come out of any screen that can show that Ring movie there is and she will probably just become her normal size once she comes out of the screen.
        Its not anymore stupid than what Freddy Kreuger did in the Nightmare on Elm Street movies for example but we are used to seeing Freddy do what he does and we are not used to seeing Samara do something like this.

        Also most of the stuff when people complain about stuff like this its that its something different that people did not expect that automatically turns it into something weird and stupid and how its different does not seem to really matter at all.

        • Hash-Slinging Slasher

          You just repeated what you said in your original comment 5 more times. It’s pretty amazing.

          • LoveAnimation

            That sure did not feel like i was saying the same stuff i said in my original comment again at all to me.

  • Ive HAD it. Weve these motherfuckin rings on this motherfuckin plane.

  • Jiggleberries

    But she crawled through a tiny TV screen! Does that mean that she was… tiny?
