Does Doctor Sleep Have A Post-Credits Scene? | Screen Rant

Director Mike Flanagan’s movie adaptation of Doctor Sleep, Stephen King’s sequel to The Shining, arrives soon, but does it have a post-credits scene? Despite the fact that Stephen King himself hates The Shining movie, it’s safe to say that most consider Stanley Kubrick’s film to be one of the greatest in horror history. On the other hand, King’s original Shining novel is also beloved. This put Flanagan in an awkward position with Doctor Sleep, that of having to adapt a book sequel to King’s novel, while also respecting iconic elements only found in Kubrick’s Shining film.
Surprisingly enough, King seems quite enamored with Flanagan’s finished product, praising Doctor Sleep heavily, and suggesting fans check it out in theaters. Evidently his hatred of Kubrick’s cinematic changes didn’t withstand the rapidly rising Flanagan’s skill as a horror filmmaker. With acclaimed fright flicks like Absentia, Oculus, and fellow King adaptation Gerald’s Game under his belt already, Doctor Sleep’s early praise signals that Flanagan isn’t about to step off track.

With Doctor Sleep arriving in U.K. theaters on October 31 – and U.S. theaters on November 8 – anticipation for this latest Stephen King adaptation is reaching a fever pitch. However, in the age of post-credits scenes, many moviegoers may be wondering if anything juicy is waiting for them as a reward for remaining seated. Unfortunately, Doctor Sleep contains no post-credits scenes. Once the credits roll, the story of grown-up Danny Torrance (Ewan McGregor) has ended.

The lack of any post-credits scenes for Doctor Sleep isn’t entirely surprising, as credits scenes are often used to setup plot threads for future films, or to deliver a final joke to amuse the crowd. Doctor Sleep has no sequel book to adapt, and it seems unlikely King’s saga of the Overlook Hotel and Danny’s psychic gifts will continue. Plus, Doctor Sleep is far from a comedy, so a humorous tag would be inappropriate.

Still, Doctor Sleep remains a hot prospect for movie fans, even if there’s no extra treats waiting after the credits. Stephen King stories are always interesting, even if all his adaptations aren’t great. This one seems like it will be though, drawing positive reviews from critics, in addition to King’s own glowing praise. 2019 has already given King fans IT: Chapter Two, but now – to paraphrase the trailers – it’s time for the world to shine once again, even if what it sees when doing so ends up being the stuff of nightmares.

Book Release – LAILA

Book Release – LAILA
Media release. Published: 26-Nov-2020 08:20 am
Fadi Zaghmout

Jordanian author Fadi Zaghmout announced the release of his new novella Laila, a story of a woman protagonist that challenges the mainstream stereotypes of female sexuality in the region.
Laila is a modern Jordanian woman who grows up in a society where customs and traditions endure. Trapped in a marriage to a man she finds physically revolting, Laila begins to realize secret truths about her sexuality and identity as a woman. Her own sexual needs and desires are in contrast with society’s general perception of women’s roles and expectations, but her reality materializes once she meets a compatible man. The story unfolds in a thrilling and engaging manner and edges towards radical feminism.
“Our Arab societies have fallen under the claws of exaggerated toxic masculinity, the balance between genders have been lost, thus I feel that some radical feminist narrative is needed, at least in literature, to rebalance what’s happening on the ground and help us move forward towards more just societies”, Zaghmout commented, adding that he was inspired by the work of Angela Carter (The Passion of New Eve) and Gillian Flinn (Gone Girl).
In Laila, Zaghmout continues to challenge mainstream stereotypes about gender and sexuality in the region. The book, which was originally released in Arabic in 2018 by Egyptian based publisher Kotob Khan under the name of Laila wal Hamal, was banned in Jordan due to its subversive narrative and bold depiction of women’s sexuality.
Commenting on that, Zaghmout said, “I am very excited about the English release of the book. People find it easier to read about such topics in English, and it will be easier to access for many since it will be available on all main book-selling portals worldwide”.
Like his first two novels translated to English, this book is published by Signal 8 Press, an independent publisher with offices in England and Florida. Translation is done by Hajer Almosleh.
About the author:
Fadi Zaghmout is a Jordanian Author. He holds an MA in Creative Writing and Critical Thinking from Sussex University in the UK.
Passionate about social justice, he started writing on his blog in 2006, hoping to spread awareness about issues of gender equality, body rights and sexual freedoms.
Previous works by the author include: The Bride of Amman, Heaven on Earth, and Ebra Wa Kushtuban. His books as been translated to English and French languages.

Janelle Monáe Leads The Revolution In Stirring ‘Turntables’ Video

Janelle Monáe Leads The Revolution In Stirring ‘Turntables’ Video

YouTube

“We are in the middle of a revolution right? What’s a revolution without a song and a song without a revolution.”
That’s the question the Grammy-winning artist Janelle Monáe posed to Entertainment Weekly when describing her latest single, “Turntables.” The song was released on and flips between cleverly rapped lines about “liberation, elevation, education” and a harmonic refrain with clear gospel influences. It’s Monáe’s take on a contemporary protest song, a call for a political sea change, in the vein of, say, Billie Holiday’s “Strange Fruit” or Public Enemy’s “Fight the Power.”
Courtesy of Atlantic RecordsAnd on Tuesday (September), Monáe released a moving music video — or, as she calls it, an emotion picture — that solidified that message. The visual opens and closes with the singer walking along the beach in a beige trench coat and military cap. At times, she can be seen singing into a retro microphone before an American flag; in others, she moves through staged breakfast scenes, with a family reading through newspaper headlines as they mouth her lyrics. The visual flashes through archival and contemporary footage depicting inspirational figures past and present: Where one scene shows the model and activist Jillian Mercado at a photo shoot, another depicts a conversation with lifelong activist Angela Davis.
What rings true without is a hopeful cry for change and for equality, and a recognition of those who have been leading that fight for decades. Monáe wrote “Turntables” for the new Amazon Studios documentary, All In: The Fight for Democracy, that shines a light on voter suppression, particularly through the lens of Stacey Abrams’s failed bid for the Georgia governorship. “Right now, I am focused on turning the election in our favor,” Monáe told Entertainment Weekly, “and I hope this song can inspire those who are on the ground doing the work.”

Joe Keery’s Reinvention, Mxmtoon’s Carly Rae Jepsen Collab, And More Songs We Love

The search for the ever-elusive “bop” is difficult. Playlists and streaming-service recommendations can only do so much. They often leave a lingering question: Are these songs really good, or are they just new?
Enter Bop Shop, a hand-picked selection of songs from the MTV News team. This weekly collection doesn’t discriminate by genre and can include anything — it’s a snapshot of what’s on our minds and what sounds good. We’ll keep it fresh with the latest music, but expect a few oldies (but goodies) every once in a while, too. Get ready: The Bop Shop is now open for business.

St. Vincent ft. Yoshiki: “New York”

St. Vincent, the intuitive musical goddess that she is, must have sensed our collective need for another quarantine ballad. Enter “New York [Feat. Yoshiki],” a classical arrangement of the standout single from 2017’s Masseduction. An added string section courtesy of Yoshiki, a Japanese multi-instrumentalist, beautifully complements the song’s original piano instrumentals. What more can I say? “New York isn’t New York / Without you, love” just hits different in the middle of a pandemic. —Sam Manzella

Djo: “Keep Your Head Up”

Last year, Joe Keery (of Stranger Things fame) released a glossy solo album under the moniker Djo. It was titled Twenty Twenty, and its sparkling arrangements ended up being quite far removed from the overall vibe of 2020 the year, but who could fault him for his optimism? Keery has also long been a contributing member of Chicago psych band Post Animal, but Djo is simply Joe — and latest “Keep Your Head Up” feels like several Joes ripping open a vortex in the funk-time continuum. This is a groove, peppered with buzzy synths and icy falsetto and an honest-to-god sax part. It’s akin to Todd Terje doing Tame Impala, a lightheaded cocktail rush that feels both clubby and bedroom ambitious. Positively galactic. —Patrick Hosken

Mxmtoon ft. Carly Rae Jepsen: “OK On Your Own”

When Mxmtoon’s Maia said she recorded “OK On Your Own” for the girls and the gays, she wasn’t kidding. The mellow bedroom-pop bop soundtracks a journey of self-reflection after a breakup, complete with the soft ukulele instrumentals that put the 19-year-old singer-songwriter on the map. Is it revelatory? No, but with pop icon Carly Rae Jepsen lending her sugary-sweet vocals to the second verse, it doesn’t have to be. Now I’m just waiting for “Party for Two.” —Sam Manzella

Video Age: “Aerostar”

Pleasure Line, the third album from emerging indie pop quartet Video Age, delivers perfectly escapist ’80s new wave vibes for when you need to get outta 2020 for just a moment. “Aerostar” is its punchy center, a hip-twisting, shoulder-shuffling groove that delivers quirky robot dance commands (“Slide to the left, now! Shimmy to the right!”) over hoppin’ funk synths and a kickin’ drum machine. It all harkens to a simpler time, one where dance floors were actually a real thing. Oh, the ’80s! —Terron Moore

Ruel: “As Long As You Care”

About a year ago, Australian middle-part heartthrob Ruel told MTV News that for him, “songwriting is exaggerating to an extent.” On his latest, the technicolor, soulful “As Long As You Care,” his exaggeration is so seamless, you’d be forgiven for believing the 17-year-old is actually a time traveler. The neo-soul groove he rides propels everything upward, even as the sound cheekily looks backward. “As Long As You Care” has one amazing hook, coupled with sonic candy that makes his upcoming third EP, Bright Lights, Red Eyes (out October 23) one to watch. —Patrick Hosken

Alycia Bella ft. Boogie: “Cue the Sun”

Something magical happens two-and-a-half minutes into “Cue the Sun,” the exploratory new collab between striking R&B voice Alycia Bella and rapper Boogie. After piping in the aural equivalent of stage smoke via jazzy piano and gorgeous vocalizations — “It feel like being lost in the right direction” — Bella’s song enters a more sparkly realm for Boogie’s recitations. By the end, you’re lighter, like your mind’s been cleared of all the cobwebs. Cue the sun. —Patrick Hosken
