Often, movies leave audiences confused on a cliffhanger, and it comes to their assumption of how the story would turn out to be. Adding to a list of similar movies comes Premonition, which was released in 2007.
The flick was based on Linda Hanson, played by Sandra Bullock, who has an idyllic life until one day she receives word that her husband Jim, portrayed by Julian McMahon, dies in an accident. The psychological thriller presents a nightmare scenario. What if you found out your significant other was going to die soon?
As the movie spun around her personal life and her husband, it was left with Linda that whatever happened in her dream was not a dream but, in fact, a reality. In the movie’s complicated time jumps, she realizes Jim is going to cheat on her, and he’s going to die. Battling all that, the character is able to stop the affair from happening. Her effort to save Jim’s death backfires, and her interference is literally what causes his death.
The couple’s story has a prologue and an epilogue. As the movie starts, the happily married couple, a few years before the incident, move into their new two-story house. By the end, she is holding a photograph of him. She is seen as pregnant in the movie, as she assumes the same in her dream.
The Sandra Bullock starrer movie stood up to its title, and the story was exactly as the word would say. As the title is self-explanatory, a strong feeling that something unpleasant is about to happen, the events of the movie prove how the life path of each person is predetermined from the very beginning. The movie did not change the actual meaning of the word in the name of wordplay as it should how some things are inevitable.
While she had the dream, she tried changing the frightening events taking place in her life. In the movie, Linda made her believe that she must act and that she must and can change fate and what was about to happen next.
Sandra Bullock has been one of the biggest Hollywood stars to date. The 59-year-old actress has a surprisingly diverse list of credits and has been a part of many blockbuster movies.
However, she has not been a part of many movies from the horror genre except for a few. Released in 2007, Premonition cast Bullock as Linda Hanson, a woman whose husband dies in an accident, and she’s experiencing the days leading to his death out of order.
While she is not a ghost in the movie, her nightmares are not enough to make money for the movie. Her performance grounds the movie as if it did have an intriguing premise, but Premonition is ultimately leaden and kind of dull.
Is the Husband Alive at the End of Premonition?
As the title of the movie was quite self-explanatory of how one cannot change fate, Jim Hanson, played by Julian McMahon, did die by the end of Premonition. The husband of Bullock’s character was meant to die, regardless of what they tried to do to stop or avoid it. While many assumed whether he was alive or not, the answer is straightaway NO.
Premonition is available on Amazon Prime Video.
