BALTIMORE, MD –
As promised, Jordan Peele has delivered the official trailer for his Candyman remake.
The Jordan Peele- directed movie that has a lot of hype going into the 2020 heavy-film season. Peele is still riding high from his 2016 hit Get Out and Us in 2019. Big box office success for each film has put the pressure on him for his remake of Candyman.
To be truthful, I saw the original Candyman for the first time last year. I loved every minute of it from the script to the tone of the film. The urban background of the film allowed me to relate to it. Tony Todd as the original villain also made the film feel relative. A great film that will live forever.
That’s why when I saw that Peele was remaking the film, I couldn’t help but wonder how this would go. It could be the perfect intersection between the original’s greatness and Peele’s legend.
The trailer dropped today and it features an eerie version of Destiny Child’s “Say My Name”. Check out the trailer and let us know what you’re thinking!
