A new trailer and have poster have been released to promote the Stephen King adaptation The Boogeyman, coming soon to theatres
We’re just a month and a half away from the June 2nd theatrical release of the Stephen King adaptation The Boogeyman, and to help build the hype 20th Century Studios has unveiled a new trailer for the film, which you can check out in the embed above, as well as a new poster, which can be seen at the bottom of this article.
The Boogeyman was originally heading for a release through the Hulu streaming service, but it scored so well at a test screening that the decision was made to give it a theatrical release. Coming to us from Host (watch it HERE) and Dashcam director Rob Savage, The Boogeyman follows a 16-year-old and her younger sister, still reeling from the death of their mother, as they’re targeted by a supernatural boogeyman, after their psychologist father has an encounter with a desperate patient in their house.
Scott Beck and Bryan Woods (A Quiet Place) wrote the initial draft of the script for The Boogeyman, which was then rewritten by Akela Cooper (Malignant) and more recently Mark Heyman (Black Swan). King said that the writers’ work resulted in “a fantastic screenplay”. Despite the fact that it’s quite different from the source material, a short story that appeared in the pages of King’s Night Shift collection.
The film stars Chris Messina (Sharp Objects), Sophie Thatcher (Yellowjackets), Marin Ireland (The Umbrella Academy), Vivien Lyra Blair (Bird Box), Madison Hu (Voyagers), and David Dastmalchian (The Suicide Squad).
The Boogeyman was produced by Shawn Levy, Dan Levine, and Dan Cohen of 21 Laps Entertainment, the company behind Stranger Things. Executive producers are Emily Morris, Beck, and Woods. Are you looking forward to
the Boogeyman? What did you think about the new trailer? Please leave a comment. It’s best to forget the King story while watching the trailer or the movie. Maybe it’ll be a good horror film on its own.
