A Taylor Swift Concert Movie has inspired Universal and Blumhouse, to release The Exorcist: Believer one week earlier.
13 holds a special place in the heart of musician Taylor Swift. She considers 13 to be her lucky digit. She has said that “I was born on 13th and turned 13 on Friday 13th. My first album went platinum in 13 weeks.” My first song to ever reach number one had a 13-second intro. I didn’t do that on purpose! She gave more examples, but it made perfect sense when it was announced that her concert movie Taylor Swift : The Eras Tour will be released in theaters nationwide on October 13th. In response to this announcement, Universal Pictures and Blumhouse Productions have decided to push their film The exorcist: believer back one week, from its original October 13th release date, to avoid competing with Taylor Swift during its opening week. The Exorcist: Believer will now reach theatres on October 6th.
Director David Gordon Green recently finished working on a trilogy of Halloween sequels for Universal and Blumhouse that consisted of Halloween (2018), Halloween Kills, and Halloween Ends. Now he’s working with the companies on a trilogy of sequels to the 1973 classic The Exorcist (watch it HERE) that begins with Believer. Green crafted the story for the film with Danny McBride (who wrote all three of the new Halloweens with him) and their Halloween Kills co-writer Scott Teems, then wrote the screenplay with Peter Sattler (Broken Diamonds). Here’s a synopsis of the movie: Since his wife died in a Haitian earthquake twelve years ago, Victor Fielding raised their daughter alone. But when Angela and her friend Katherine, disappear in the woods, only to return three days later with no memory of what happened to them, it unleashes a chain of events that will force Victor to confront the nadir of evil and, in his terror and desperation, seek out the only person alive who has witnessed anything like it before: Chris MacNeil.
Ellen Burstyn reprises the role of Chris MacNeil, the character she played in The Exorcist, “an actress who has been forever altered by what happened to her daughter Regan five decades before.” Leslie Odom Jr. (Hamilton) plays Victor Fielding, with Lidya Jewett (Nightbooks) as Angela and newcomer Olivia Marcum as her friend Katherine. Ann Dowd (The Handmaid’s Tale) plays Victor and Angela’s neighbor, and Jennifer Nettles (The Righteous Gemstones) and Norbert Leo Butz (Fosse/Verdon) play Katherine’s parents.
Okwui Okpokwasili (Master) is also in the cast, playing an unspecified role, and Raphael Sbarge (Carnosaur) plays a pastor. Linda Blair, who played Chris MacNeil’s daughter Regan in the original The exorcist, is also in this remake. Green, Danny McBride Stephanie Allain and Couper Samuelson are executive producers. Ryan Turek oversees the project for Blumhouse. Blum is the one who
the new release date.Universal and Peacock forked over an amount somewhere in the range of $400 million to acquire the rights to distribute this trilogy, so you can understand why they’re trying to avoid competition. It’s a huge amount of money. It was announced that the next sequel confirmedThe Exorcist : Deceiver
will be hitting theatres on April 18th, 2025. Leave a comment to let us know what you think.
