Movie Trailer: ‘Candyman’

Published: Thursday 27th Feb 2020 by Sam

The ‘Candyman’ is back!

Jordan Peele breathes life anew into the famed and fearsome force with a revival that has everyone saying the legendary name. All over again.

The Oscar winner takes on producer and screenwriting duties, while on-boarding newcomer Nia DaCosta as director of this contemporary take on the classic.

In this version, Yahya Abdul-Mateen II plays the lead role of visual artist Anthony McCoy. 

Living in Chicago’s Cabrini Green neighborhood with girlfriend Brianna (Teyonah Parris), his life as an artist faces collapse due to the impact of gentrification.

Yet, when he meets elder native of the area who clues him up on the blood-spilling history of the Candyman, he’s provided inspiration that takes him on the most rollercoaster of journeys.

Ahead of the film’s June 12th release, check out the first look trailer below…

      He becomes the new candy man. Tony Todd plays Candyman in the movie and passes the hook to him.

    OMG! Jordan Peele is a part of this? Now I understand why this doesn’t look as scary as I would have imagined.

    I swear lol. People today have such HIGH ASS standards to be so non-standard smh. But anyways, it looks VERY appealing. Jordan Peel did his THANG with “Get Out” and “US”… So he has my coin with this one too!

    It looks more silly than scary. People laughed all throughout “Us” and they’ll do the same watching this remake. It just doesn’t look good.

    Do not mess with a classic. It’s perfect as it is.
