Before it became a TV series, Fantasy Island was introduced to viewers in 1977 and 1978 with two TV movies. Gene Levitt created the original television series, and Jeff Wadlow, Couper Samuelson, and Jeanette Volturno served as executive producers on the movie.

The new trailer has Michael Pena playing the late Ricardo Montalban's signature role as the enigmatic, white suit-wearing Mr. Roarke. "However when the fantasies flip into nightmares, the friends have to resolve the island's thriller with a objective to escape with their lives". It is also developed by the horror titans at Blumhouse, who just dropped a new trailer for the reimagining of the 40-year aged ABC collection.

Trump is also engaged in a legal battle with NY officials, who subpoenaed eight years of his personal and business tax returns. Last week, a federal appeals panel ruled the president's accounting firm must hand over its records to Manhattan prosecutors.

The trailer below centers on a woman played by Lucy Hale whose fantasy is to get revenge on one of her childhood bullies.

Genre fans can take a much needed vacation to Fantasy Island when it hits theaters next Valentine's Day - an update from the previous release date. The movie was written and directed by Jeff Wadlow (Reality or Dare) and has been described as a cross between Westworld and Cabin within the Woods in early studies. Starring is Michael Peña (Ant-Man), Maggie Q (Divergent), Lucy Hale (Scream 4), Austin Stowell (Whiplash), Portia Doubleday (Carrie), Jimmy O. Yang (Silicon Valley), Ryan Hansen (2009's Friday the 13th), and Michael Rooker (The Walking Dead).
