The 2021 ‘Candyman‘ reboot directed by Nia DaCosta is set to be released on DVD, BluRay and 4K UHD. The film has been heralded as a Covid-era box office success collecting an impressive $22.37 million from 3,569 theaters in its first three days of it’s domestic release and has so far grossed over $27million worldwide (from a budget of around $25 million) after having it’s release delayed multiple times due to the ongoing pandemic.
Oscar® winner Jordan Peele and filmmaker Nia DaCosta unleashes a fresh take on the blood-chilling urban legend: Candyman. For decades the housing projects of Chicago’s Cabrini-Green neighborhood were terrorized by a ghost story about a supernatural killer summoned by repeating his name five times into a mirror. In the present day, artist Anthony McCoy (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II) moves into the neighborhood, now gentrified beyond recognition. Anxious to maintain his status in the art world, he begins to explore the macabre history of Candyman, which unknowingly unravels his own sanity and unleashes a terrifying wave of violence that puts him on a collision course with destiny.
Produced by Jordan Peele (Get Out, US) with Jason Blum for his studio Blumhouse (in association with MGM); and directed by Nia DaCosta (Top Boy, Crossing the Line). The film stars Yahya Abdul-Mateen II (Aquaman), Teyonah Parris (If Beale Street Could Talk) and Tony Todd returning as the title character.
Features and release date for the set are still to be confirmed.
