The devil is in the details.
The Exorcist: Believer--the upcoming sequel to the 1973 horror classic–will arrive a bit earlier than expected, one week earlier to be exact.’
Producer Jason Blum this week said the film will hit theaters Oct. 6 instead of the previously announced Oct. 13 release date. The reason? Reportedly, the powers-that-be did not want their horror pic to compete with Taylor Swift’s Eras Tour concert movie. Scary.
The Blumhouse/Universal entry is directed by David Gordon Green from a screenplay he wrote with Scott Teems, Danny McBride and Peter Sattler.
In this first of three planned sequels, Victor Fielding (Leslie Odom Jr.) is raising his daughter Angela (Lidya Jewett) alone since his wife’s death. But things take a turn for the bizarre when Angela and her friend Katherine (Olivia Marcum) disappear in the nearby woods one day.
The girls return three days later–with no memory of what happened to them–and a chain of events forces Fielding “to confront evil and find the one person who has seen something like this before: Chris MacNeil (Ellen Burstyn).”
