FULL DARK, NO STARS by Stephen King Book Trailer


Stephen King’s latest book, Full Dark, No Stars, will be released on November 9, 2010. It’s a collection of four novellas that each deal with the theme of retribution. In anticipation of Full Dark, No Stars, short film label Future Shorts is collaborating with King’s UK publisher Hodder and Stoughton to produce a book trailer for each novella. Check out two of the book trailers below (the other two are coming soon).

Synopsis of 1922:

“I believe there is another man inside every man, a stranger…” writes Wilfred Leland James in the early pages of the riveting confession that makes up “1922,” the first in this pitch-black quartet of mesmerizing tales from Stephen King. For James, that stranger is awakened when his wife, Arlette, proposes selling off the family homestead and moving to Omaha, setting in motion a gruesome train of murder and madness.

Synopsis of Big Driver:

In “Big Driver,” a cozy-mystery writer named Tess encounters the stranger along a back road in Massachusetts when she takes a shortcut home after a book-club engagement. Violated and left for dead, Tess plots a revenge that will bring her face-to-face with another stranger: the one inside herself.

Synopsis of Fair Extension:

“Fair Extension,” the shortest of these tales, is perhaps the nastiest and certainly the funniest. Making a deal with the devil – never a stranger from most people with something to lose – not only saves Dave Streeter from a fatal cancer but provides rich recompense for a lifetime of resentment.

Synopsis of A Good Marriage:

When her husband of more than twenty years is away on one of his business trips, Darcy Anderson looks for batteries in the garage. Her toe knocks up against a box under a worktable and she discovers the stranger inside her husband. It’s a horrifying discovery, rendered with bristling intensity, and it definitively ends a good marriage.
