2016 dealt with The Ring franchise the only wait it knew how - by amping everything up by about 110%.

Rings will work fine as a title for the third installment of the franchise, sure, but this really should have been called Xtreme Ring; as your favourite stringy-haired ghost girl, Samara, has jacked her supernatural powers to a point that she can now crash planes, and ruin people's days in a whole host of nefarious ways.

The first trailer for the film highlights just a few of the new terrors she can instill - including answering the first logical question that comes to any Ring fan's mind, why not just break the TV?

Rings stars Matilda Lutz as a young woman whose boyfriend becomes disturbingly obsessed with the subculture that's sprung up around the killer videotape that's become the centre of The Ring franchise; the one that is said to kill the watcher seven days later. She sacrifices herself so that she can save her boyfriend, but in doing so makes a horrific discovery: there is a "movie within the movie" that no one has ever seen before. Cue ghost shenanigans.

The film also stars Alex Roe, Johnny Galecki, Aimee Teegarden, Bonnie Morgan and Vincent D’Onofrio.

Rings hits UK cinemas 31 October.
