The Ring

This is about the movie called The Ring. For other things called Ring, see Ring.

The Ring is a 2002 American motion picture that is a remake of the Japanese horror film Ringu. The story concerns a videotape of possibly supernatural origin which causes people to die grotesquely seven days after they watch it. Produced by DreamWorks pictures, the film was a popular success, earning a total of $129,094,024 in domestic box office receipts.

It stars Naomi Watts and Martin Henderson and is directed by Gore Verbinski.

A sequel, The Ring Two, released in North American theaters on March 18, 2005 and earned over $36 million dollars in its opening weekend, more than doubling the opening weekend of The Ring. It is directed by Hideo Nakata, the director of the original Japanese film Ringu.

There was also a video game for the Sega Dreamcast called The Ring: Terror's Realm. In it, a woman played a game and was told she would die in 7 days—similar to the later released movie.
