So, I've been on holiday for a few weeks so ultimately I've been out of the loop. But whilst on holiday I managed to see this trailer and I was very happy that we are now at this stage, a trailer for a movie I enjoyed when I was younger. I'm not sure if I was of age, but it didn't scare me, although I was not about to try and say Candyman 5 times in front of a mirror.
With this trailer, we see Yahya Abdul-Mateen as what seems to be a researcher who eventually turns into the titular character during the course of this movie and 5 White girls are expected to die because they did the name in unison in front of a mirror in the ladies toilets. I mean, why would you do that? Folk tale or not, I would not be pushing buttons.
There is a excellent scene of a woman silencing the name being said who I've read was in the original movie, maybe...I'll have a look in a sec, but this movie, produced by the man who directed 'Us' and 'Get Out', Jordan Peele, I believe we are going to be in for a treat....oh and Tony Todd.
Directed by Nia DaCosta and Starring Nia DaCosta, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, Teyonah Parris, Nathan Stewart-Jarrett, Colman Domingo, Vanessa Estelle Williams, Tony Todd
