In the original, abysmally rated "White Noise" (which boasts a 9% on the Tomatometer), a widower (Michael Keaton) believed he could communicate with the dead through household recording devices. The sequel, "White Noise 2: The Light," seems to shy away from that dubious phenomenon and instead employs a much more fictitious, "Final Destination"-ish plot.
From Sci Fi Wire: "After a near-death experience, Fillion’s character discovers he has the psychic ability to see who’s going to die next. "He can see things, but people think he’s crazy, and he just falls apart," Fillion said. "And, yes, there is some of the recordings of the dead on machines and all that.""
Nathan Fillion next stars in the creature feature "Slither," which opens March 31, 2006.
