I swear, after this summer I don't think I'll ever want to stay in another hotel room again. First, they gave us Vacancy (here's your key to the "snuff film" room), then this weekend we get Bug (here's your key to the bug-filled room) and now a final poster has been released for 1408 (here's your key to the room where 56 people have died). "Thanks! Can I use my points for this stay?" Based on a a Stephen King short story, 1408 stars John Cusack as Mike Enslin; an author who loves to run around town discrediting a number of paranormal hot spots. While penning his latest book, Ten Nights in Haunted Hotel Rooms, Mike receives a mysterious tip to visit the notorious Dolphin Hotel for a stay in room 1408.
Once there, Mike ignores the hotel manager's (Samuel L. Jackson) warning regarding the spooky room (apparently, no one has managed to stay there longer than an hour) and heads upstairs ready to experience something, anything. And based on the pretty sweet trailer, it seems our hero is in store for a lot more than he bargained for. You can check out the poster to the right (click here for a larger version courtesy of JoBlo). Directed by Mikael Håfström (who last gave us the Clive Owen pic Derailed), and adapted by Matt Greenberg (Reign of Fire) and Scott Alexander (Ed Wood, Cell), 1408 marks Cusack's second trip to a hotel full of lunatics (the first being the somewhat decent Identity); is it just me, or does he need to start doing some better research when searching for a place to crash? Make your reservation now folks; 1408 arrives in theaters on June 22.
