After directing horror hits like Get Out and Us, Jordan Peele is actually on the producer\u2019s chair for a reboot\/sequel of Candyman. The first trailer is finally out, and it gives us a creepy horror film starring Watchmen\u2019s Yahya Abdul-Mateen II.\r\n\r\nhttps:\/\/www.youtube.com\/watch?v=tlwzuZ9kOQU\r\n\r\nHere\u2019s the official description:\r\n\r\nFor as long as residents can remember, the housing projects of Chicago\u2019s Cabrini Green neighborhood were terrorized by a word-of-mouth ghost story about a supernatural killer with a hook for a hand, easily summoned by those daring to repeat his name five times into a mirror. In present day, a decade after the last of the Cabrini towers were torn down, visual artist Anthony McCoy (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II; HBO\u2019s Watchmen, Us) and his girlfriend, gallery director Brianna Cartwright (Teyonah Parris; If Beale Street Could Talk, The Photograph), move into a luxury loft condo in Cabrini, now gentrified beyond recognition and inhabited by upwardly mobile millennials.\r\n\r\nWith Anthony\u2019s painting career on the brink of stalling, a chance encounter with a Cabrini Green old-timer (Colman Domingo; HBO\u2019s Euphoria, Assassination Nation) exposes Anthony to the tragically horrific nature of the true story behind Candyman. Anxious to maintain his status in the Chicago art world, Anthony begins to explore these macabre details in his studio as fresh grist for paintings, unknowingly opening a door to a complex past that unravels his own sanity and unleashes a terrifyingly viral wave of violence that puts him on a collision course with destiny.\r\n\r\nIt\u2019s worth noting that though Peele is attached to this movie, the director is actually Nia DaCosta. She doesn\u2019t have that much movies under her belt, but this is her second title after Little Woods which came out back in 2018.\r\n\r\nWith most horror properties getting the reboot treatment, I\u2019m interested to see what happens when it comes to Candyman. The villain himself has a very racially charged origin, so I\u2019m curious to see how it will tackle its story, especially during today\u2019s social climate.\r\n\r\nCatch Candyman in theaters when it comes out June 12.
