Universal Pictures is making some major changes to its upcoming horror film schedule, with ramifications reaching out as far as 2022.
As the coronavirus pandemic began to spread, Universal was one of the first studios to start moving its schedule around. One of the most serious moves being the shifting of F9 back by nearly a year. As the pandemic continues on with spiking cases around the U.S., Universal is now making a few additional changes.
First up, Jordan Peele’s Candyman is moving from Sept. 25 to Oct. 16 of this year. That is when things start to get wild as Halloween Kills now moves from Oct. 16 6o Oct. 15, 2021, and that in turn pushes Halloween Ends from Oct. 15, 2021 to Oct. 14, 2022.
In additional move is the final Purge movie, The Forever Purge, was taken off the schedule in May, it now lands on July 9, 2021.
As some solace for all of these changes, Universal released the first teaser for Halloween Kills, and it looks as though we pick up mere moments after the last film.
Expect more changes in the coming weeks.
