Candyman Delayed Until 2021, Director Nia DaCosta Explains Why

Candyman‘s comeback film has, as soon as once more, seen its launch date delayed, this time fully moved off the 2020 calendar yr.

Amongst large shifts for the long-set fall launch dates of massive studio movies, the Common/MGM/Monkeypaw/BRON co-produced Candyman horror reboot film has likewise been moved from its most lately scheduled October 16 launch date to the obscure window of an unspecified date in 2021. Curiously, the movie’s director, Nia DaCosta, took to Twitter to supply the reasoning behind the transfer. Nevertheless, the tweet in question—and the account—has been deleted. As she defined:

“We wished the horror and humanity of CANDYMAN to be skilled in a collective, a group, so we’re pushing Candyman to subsequent yr, to make sure that everybody can see the movie, in theaters, and share in that have.”

DaCosta’s clarification seemingly squelched any rumors that Candyman would swap to a day-and-date distribution technique—à la latest launch Bill & Ted Face the Music—of primarily manifesting as a premium video-on-demand (PVOD) launch, with simultaneous restricted theatrical showings. Nevertheless, with the tweet now deleted, such a notion may really be again in play. Whereas there are definitely a number of metric-minded variables that contributed to the choice, DaCosta’s (now-deleted) tweet indicated a want to make sure audiences expertise the movie within the medium during which it was made to be offered.

Nevertheless, the inventive motive cited by DaCosta concerning Candyman’s 2020 exit can also be complemented by monetary warning. Pertinently, director Christopher Nolan’s Tenet—essentially the most outstanding would-be blockbuster to have stayed the theatrical course—has spent the previous few weeks as king of the proverbial molehill, with a meager (by regular requirements,) Labor Day weekend home debut of $20.2 million that dramatically plummeted by 66.8% this previous weekend. It’s a improvement that appears to point that almost all of film patrons aren’t fairly able to return to the indoors and closely-seated pastime.
