Yesterday brought us the release of three new posters for David Gordon Green's The Exorcist: Believer, the first of three new Exorcist movies from the creative team behind the recent Halloween trilogy. Those posters didn't tell us much, but their arrival did imply that the film's first trailer would not be far behind...
...and, wouldn't ya know it, it turns out it's already here: according to the good folks over at Bloody Disgusting, the first trailer for David Gordon Green's The Exorcist: Believer is currently attached to screenings of Christopher Nolan's Oppenheimer. All things considered (and setting aside the fact that both films are Universal productions), this probably makes more sense than attaching The Exorcist: Believer's trailer to Barbie.
As we noted yesterday: The Exorcist: Believer finds Leslie Odom Jr. playing the father of a possessed little girl. In a desperate bid to rid her of the demon that's taken over her body, he seeks out Ellen Burstyn's character ... who just might be able to offer some guidance on what to do when your kid gets hijacked by evil spirits. Complicating matters? The fact that Odom Jr.'s daughter isn't the only possessed little girl on the block.
In addition to Burstyn and Odom Jr., The Exorcist: Believer also stars Hereditary's Ann Dowd, Nightbooks' Lidya Jewett, Raphael Sbarge, Olivia Marcum, and Jennifer Nettles (who some of you might recognize from The Righteous Gemstones). They'll all be working from a script co-written by Green and Peter Sattler, from an original story written by Green, Scott Teems, and the great Danny McBride.
Nothing further to report on The Exorcist: Believer at this time. If you can't make it to a screening of Oppenheimer this weekend, don't worry - we imagine the trailer will be along sooner rather than later. Stay tuned for that, as well as any other further updates on Green's latest horror redux, as they become available.
