Rings is the third in The Ring big screen franchise and was originally entitled The Ring 3.
In the movie Rings, Samara returns with a familiar video tape to strike terror again. (Yawn).
In case you really want to know, Rings revolves around the events that took place before The Ring. It tells the story of the years before the video tape came to be and the beginning of how Samara’s terror began.
The original The Ring was released in 2002 by the now defunt Dreamworks and earned $129,128,133 at the U.S. movie box office.
The Ring 2 arrived in movie theaters in 2005 and grabbed $76,231,249 at the movie box office in America.
Rings was supposed to arrive in theaters in 2015 but was shelved until Paramount finally decided to release the picture in 2017. It bombed, as expected, with less than $25 million at the box office.
