Two Clips From Blumhouse’s Adaptation of Stephen King’s FIRESTARTER Unleash Charlie’s Pyrokinetic Powers

Universal Pictures has released two new clips from Blumhouse’s new film adaptation of Stephen King’s Firestarter. These clips give us a glimpse of Charlie unleashing her pyrokinetic superpower. This kid is put in an intense and scary situation and she is being hunted down and she unleashes the fiery fury to protect herself and her family

King’s story follows Charlie McGee (Ryan Kiera Armstrong), “a girl with extraordinary pyrokinetic powers fights to protect her family and herself from sinister forces that seek to capture and control her.”

For more than a decade, “parents Andy (Zac Efron) and Vicky (Sydney Lemmon) have been on the run, desperate to hide their daughter Charlie (Armstrong) from a shadowy federal agency that wants to harness her unprecedented gift for creating fire into a weapon of mass destruction. Andy has taught Charlie how to defuse her power, which is triggered by anger or pain. But as Charlie turns 11, the fire becomes harder and harder to control. After an incident reveals the family’s location, a mysterious operative (Michael Greyeyes) is deployed to hunt down the family and seize Charlie once and for all. Charlie has other plans.”

Firestarter will be released on Peacock this week on May 13th.
