Candyman Going To Be Delayed Due To Coronavirus?
Although the next reboot of the movie Candyman / spiritual sequel may still be slated for June 2020, it’s unclear how long it will last. More than 20 years have passed since Candyman claimed to be the victim of someone who dared to say his name five times, and in that time, much has changed about the horror genre. Hollywood, along with horror, becomes too inclusive and “awake” for lack of a better word. When Candyman came out, black-felling villains were a rarity, as were horror movies dealing with injustice towards people of colour in American society.
With Get Out and Us, writer/director Jordan Peel has recently focused on racial issues and the black experience in the United States, so it is highly appropriate to guide Candyman to take a new step on the screen. This does not mean that director Nia DaCosta’s contributions can be seen as underrated, as they have been personally selected for the concert and have nothing to say.
Candyman is slated to hit theatres on June 12, 2020, but he’s certainly a giant elephant, currently sitting in a room called Coronavirus Outbreak. Movie theatres are closed, and studios are delaying new movies from left to right. Will there be a Candyman among them?
Candyman earned for them breakthrough…!!!
At the current rate, it is impossible to predict whether Candyman will delay its release date on June 12. The best-case scenario would be for American theatres to reopen in the summer, but according to many public health professionals, things are likely to get worse before they get better. Unfortunately, there is a very good chance that what Candyman earned for his first breakthrough a few weeks ago will end yet another cinematic clash of the Coronavirus outbreak.
Many of the films, which were released in May, had already been postponed indefinitely, and the idea that Candyman would return to theatres in June would return to normal. The question then becomes: if Candyman is delayed, will Universal Pictures still try to launch it in 2020 or will it delay it to 2021? The film has a lot of positive buzzes, and it was positioned for a major summer venue. Universal may well decide to hold it until next summer if there is indeed a delay.
