The ‘Poltergeist’ 3D Remake Gets its First Trailer – VIDEO

To the surprise of no one and the ire of many, a remake of the 1982 horror classic Poltergeist is happening. In 3D. For reasons.

The first trailer for the upcoming film was unveiled today (Feb. 5) by 20th Century Fox and reveals a plot complete with technology boggarting ghosts and creepy clowns.

Which is exactly what we expected.

The remake in question follows the Bowen clan as their house is besieged by ghosts who can take over smartphones, tablets and flat screen televisions.

Pssst, something tells us they moved the headstones but not the bodies.

You can watch the 2015 Poltergeist trailer in its entirety above.

The film — which is due for a July 24th release — stars Sam Rockwell, Jane Adams, Rosemarie Dewitt and Jared Harris.
