Ewan McGregor plays adult Danny Torrance in first 'Doctor Sleep' trailer

Ewan McGregor plays adult Danny Torrance in first 'Doctor Sleep' trailerWarner Bros. released its first trailer for Doctor Sleep, a sequel to the 1980 horror classic, The Shining on Thursday.

The preview shows Moulin Rouge and Star Wars alum Ewan McGregor as the adult version of Danny Torrance, the young boy from The Shining who was able to see the many ghosts that haunted the isolated Overlook Hotel where his troubled father ultimately went insane.

The 2 1/2-minute clip sees strange messages appearing on the wall of Danny's apartment.

The ominous word "REDRUM" is cracked into a wall and voices can be heard whispering.

Danny is also seen talking to a girl, who tells him, "You're magic, like me!"

"I don't know about magic. I always called it the shining," he replies.

Mike Flanagan directed the sequel from a screenplay he wrote based on Stephen King's novels.

"Still irrevocably scarred by the trauma he endured as a child at the Overlook, Dan Torrance has fought to find some semblance of peace. But that peace is shattered when he encounters Abra, a courageous teenager with her own powerful extrasensory gift, known as the 'shine.' Instinctively recognizing that Dan shares her power, Abra has sought him out, desperate for his help against the merciless Rose the Hat and her followers, The True Knot, who feed off the shine of innocents in their quest for immortality," a synopsis said.

Rebecca Ferguson from the Mission: Impossible films and The Greatest Showman plays Rose the Hat and newcomer Kyliegh Curran plays Abra.

Co-starring Carl Lumbly, Zahn McClarnon, Emily Alyn Lind, Bruce Greenwood, Jocelin Donahue, Alex Essoe and Cliff Curtis, the film is slated for release in North America on Nov. 8.

The Shining starred Jack Nicholson, Shelley Duvall and Danny Lloyd. Creepy footage from it is woven throughout the trailer for Doctor Sleep.

The preview ends with the grownup Danny sliding across the floor into the wall of his apartment and apparently back to the Overlook Hotel.

The last image is of him peering through the door his deranged father smashed with an ax while trying to kill him and his mother.

Tom Hanks shoplifts during appearance on 'Jimmy Kimmel Live'

Tom Hanks appeared on Jimmy Kimmel Live to discuss his latest film, Toy Story 4, which features the actor reprising his role as Woody.

Hanks praised the animated film on Thursday, noting how great it was after he was able to finally watch it. Hanks said that while recording his lines for Woody, he doesn't get to see how the final film will look.

"It sounds ridiculous because I'm in it, but it's one of the best movies that I've ever seen in my life," Hanks said. "It truly is."

Toy Story 4, which also features Tim Allen reprising his role as Buzz Lightyear, Annie Potts as Bo Peep, Tony Hale as Forky and Keanu Reeves as Duke Caboom, is set to arrive in theaters on June 21.

Hanks' walked into a Hollywood souvenir shop during his appearance on Kimmel in order to steal a cardboard cutout of himself. Kimmel stated that Hanks has such a good reputation that he could get away with anything.

Hanks is successful in taking the cardboard cutout along with a number of fake Oscar statues. Hanks also defaces a cutout of Kimmel's rival Matt Damon.

"With deep gratitude for every year we have spent together and the thousands of beautiful memories shared, we have mutually decided to separate as a couple," the pair wrote.

"This decision isn't one we have come to easily or lightly. We love and respect each other as parents, people and artists and look forward to maintaining the best parts of our relationship for many years to come," they said.

Cook and Gillies are parents to 5-year-old daughter Charlotte Easton and 4-year-old son Theodore Vigo. The pair asked for privacy on behalf of their children.

"Your discretion in this matter is kindly requested for the sake of our children during this time of transition," they said. "Thank you to those of you who are already aware; for your tremendous compassion and understanding."

Cook and Gillies married in August 2004. Cook recalled their whirlwind romance in an interview with People magazine in 2013 during her first pregnancy.

"We got married incredibly fast," the star told the magazine.

"We got engaged after dating for maybe five months and we got married a couple months after that. There was just so much more both of us wanted to do. We wanted to travel and accomplish a lot more in our professional lives."

Cook is known for the films She's All That and Josie and the Pussycats, and has also appeared on Psych, Perception and Criminal Minds. Gillies played Elijah Mikaelson on The Vampire Diaries and The Originals.
