New 'Candyman' Trailer: Colman Domingo Sees the 'True Face of Fear' (Video)
Nia DaCosta’s horror film written by Jordan Peele opens in theaters August 27
“Get Out” director Jordan Peele wrote the story for what is a “spiritual sequel” to the 1992 film “Candyman,” only for it to return to what is a now gentrified neighborhood in Chicago where the legend began. Yahya Abdul Mateen II plays a man who wants to investigate the original legend of the monster, daring others to “say his name.”
This latest trailer also incorporates some of DaCosta’s recent short film, a hauntingly beautiful display of paper silhouettes and shadow puppets that went viral online as it animates Domingo’s story in vivid detail.
After many delays, the movie will hit theaters August 27. “Candyman” also stars Teyonah Parris, Nathan Stewart-Jarrett and Vanessa Williams.
Check out the trailer here and above.
