Jordan Peele produced the Candyman reboot from director NIA DaCosta, one of Horror fans’ highest 2020 horror films, but so far, there is no indication of a trailer release.
Creating a legacy that began in 1929 from director Bernard Rose, the story of Candyman — whose real name is Daniel Robitaille — stems from a story by Clive Barker (Hellraiser) that enchanted audiences with gothic horror tropes and dark romantic fantasy. The 1992 film starred Tony Todd and Virginia Madsen as Helen Lyle, who has recently been confirmed to return to film in some respects. Although Madsen cannot make an appearance, as Lyle is playing actress Cassie Kramer, fans of the original movie have been thrilled with the news that Todd will lend his talent to the new movie, though whether he will be the nominal character Still unknown.
Candyman spawned two sequels, and the new 2020 film has been described as a “spiritual sequel”. However, no more major plot has been revealed, other than that it is Cabrini-Green, now gentrified in Chicago, Will return as a throwback to the film’s original and haunting setting. DaCosta and Peele — who co-wrote the script with Vin Rosenfeld — have been taunted about the Candyman mystery, which could mean a trailer release is still closed in the distance.
When Can Candyman Release 2020 Trailers?
It is common for horror film trailers to be released in theatres with others. Given that there are some incredible movies on the way in 2020, even early in the year, there is ample opportunity for Candyman to begin its trailer. The recent news from Bloody Disgusting points to a chance that Candyman is the invisible man to release a theatre, which may coincide with the February 28 release. Right now, it seems to be most likely, but there are options.
Recent trends for most films seem to be for trailers two or three months before the release mark, with the first trailer for A Quiet Place 2 dropped on January 1, 2020. However, it is not entirely solid, as Spiral: Saw’s book released its first trailer in February, three months before its release. If there is a two-month lead for the position, another option is to go out for Oscar glory with the Antlers, who went hand-to-toe with Guillermo del Toro, a legendary horror director with whom Peele won the Oscar for the 2014 award. Can be produced by the size of water in the season. Antlers is rated R, and its April 17 release date seems like a better fit for the Candyman trailer, as it is about two months earlier.
Of course, if Peele and DaCosta want to keep their secrets until the last possible moment, a final option would be to continue with the newly watched film, as Spiral hits theatres on May 15, barely a month before Candyman will release 2020. While this would surely mean a much longer wait for fans, the trailers’ trend also continues with many important details, as seen with the final trailer for Leah Whannell The Invisible Man, perhaps better than waiting Is also being spoiled soon.
