Just like this group of medical students in this upcoming thriller, the Flatliners franchise has been brought back from the dead with a new movie hitting theaters later this month. To get fans ready for this "revival" that continues the story from the original 1990 movie, Sony Pictures has dropped a new trailer, that shows how these medical students' lives change drastically after an experiment where they're brought back from the dead. The trailer also reveals the sequel's new tagline, "You haven't lived until you've died."

Crackle, Sony's ad-supported video streaming platform, has announced its next original feature -- a raucous comedy called Party Boat. In addition to SNL and Jerry Maguire actor Jay Mohr, the film also touts some digital star wattage from noted vlogger Jc Caylen.
Also appearing in Party Boat are Brett Davern (Crackle’s Chosen), Beau Mirchoff (MTV’s Awkward), Sung Kang (Fast And Furious 6), Demetrius Bridges (The Vampire Diaries), and Katie LeClerc, who most recently headlined Awesomeness’ first original Awestruck series, Confess.

As it turns out, there was a good reason for that shift, with director Niels Arden Oplev assembling his cast once again for reshoots, which will take place in Toronto next month. If the studio would have kept the old release date, it would have been cutting it too close for comfort.
Iatse 873, the local Toronto chapter of the International Alliance of Theatrical Stage Employees union, revealed on their website that Flatliners reshoots have been scheduled in Toronto for eight days, spanning July 24 to August 1.
