There’s good news! Fans who have been anticipating the debut of Candyman for a long time will not have to wait much longer, as the film has been given an official release date of August 27, 2021. The film was supposed to be released in September, but it was put back to October 16, 2020, and then it was further postponed, and with the pandemic approaching, the film never really made it to theatres last year.
Despite DaCosta’s desire to extend the film until theatres reopen, Universal chose to distribute the film directly to streaming platforms during the pandemic. On Twitter, DaCosta responded to the delay by saying: “We produced Candyman so that it could be seen in theatres. There’s a reason the film isn’t just a movie. It’s about communities and narratives – how they build each other Together, we’ve been through sadness and joy. As well as trials and victories, we’ve also suffered.
Candyman is expected to get a theatrical release, but there’s a chance it’ll also be available on VOD since Universal has struck a deal with theatre chains to allow them to broadcast the film on VOD as well.
