The latest film to be rescheduled due to the Coronavirus pandemic is the Candyman reboot, produced by Jordan Peele and directed by Nia DaCosta. Originally slated for a June release, Universal has now set a September 25th theatrical debut.
Give the trailer and synopsis for Candyman a look-see below.
In present day, a decade after the last of the Cabrini towers were torn down, Anthony and his girlfriend move into a loft in the now gentrified Cabrini. A chance encounter with an old-timer exposes Anthony to the true story behind Candyman. Anxious to use these macabre details in his studio as fresh grist for paintings, he unknowingly opens a door to a complex past that unravels his own sanity and unleashes a terrifying wave of violence.
Candyman stars Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Teyonah Parris, and Nathan Stewart-Jarrett.
