Nightmares and Reality Collide in 10-minute Long ‘Flatliners’ Scene

Academy Award nominee Ellen Page (Best Actress, Juno, 2007), Diego Luna (Rogue One) and Nina Dobrev (“The Vampire Diaries”) star in the contemporary take on the 90’s fan favorite Flatliners, debuting on digital December 12 and on Blu-ray and DVD December 26 from Sony Pictures Home Entertainment.

The supernatural thriller follows five medical students obsessed with what lies beyond the confines of life. They embark on a daring experiment: by stopping their hearts for short periods, each triggers a near-death experience – giving them a firsthand account of the afterlife. Also experiencing the chilling consequences of exploring the one line that should never be crossed are James Norton (“War & Peace”), Kiersey Clemons (Justice League) and Kiefer Sutherland (the original Flatliners).

Check out ten minutes from the remake in which nightmares and reality collide.

The bonus content for Flatliners on digital, Blu-ray and DVD includes two behind-the-scenes featurettes. “Just What the Doctor Ordered” catches the cast and crew reflecting on working with Director Niels Arden Oplev (The Girl with the Dragon Tattoo (2009), Dead Man Down), along with an interview from Niels on his directing style and vision. In “The Ultimate Question,” the cast and crew decide whether or not they would flatline if they could and offer the revealing reasons behind their decisions.

The Flatliners digital and Blu-ray releases are loaded with additional exclusive bonus material, including deleted and extended scenes, plus two more behind-the-scenes featurettes. The featurette “Reviving a Cult Classic” explores the differences in tone, concepts and creative design from the original film and the update, featuring comments from producer and film icon Michael Douglas, while in “Making the Rounds,” the cast shares what intrigued them most about their characters, their experiences on the set, and their favorite film moments.

Directed by Niels Arden Oplev with a story by Peter Filardi and a screenplay by Ben Ripley, Flatliners was produced by Laurence Mark, Michael Douglas and Peter Safran and executive produced by Michael Bederman, Robert Mitas, David Blackman, Brian Oliver and Hassan Taher.

    I didn’t really care for the original Flatliners and I’m still puzzled why it got a remake in the first place.

    • Reason

      I never saw the original. I’ve been watching this is short bursts for the past couple days. Pretty dull for the most part.

    • J Jett

      same here. i was never a fan of the original.

      • Bart Crowe

        It’s a cool idea and the cast for the original was who’s who’s of A-List stars but yeah it’s so dull.

  • Barry El Beardo

    Its a very average film. Which compared to a lot of pumped out discharge these days, was watchable

  • DukeStKing

    Already? Wow. That was quick. Should’ve been released to the Walmart bins first, saved time.
