Candyman Release delayed! Yes, we’re sorry to report thatNia DaCosta’s spiritual sequel is the latest casualty of 2020. Universal Pictures have confirmed that they are no longer releasing Candyman on the 16th October.
This may have been expected, with countless other movies falling to the same fate. But, with only a month to go before the flick hit our screens, the news will still be a huge disappointment to many.
Worse still, Universal Pictures have not confirmed WHEN the new release date will be. All we know is that is will be sometime in 2021! Hopefully we will be able to update you with a new release date soon.
With Anthony’s painting career on the brink of stalling, a chance encounter with a Cabrini Green old-timer (Colman Domingo) exposes Anthony to the tragically horrific nature of the true story behind Candyman. Anxious to maintain his status in the Chicago art world, Anthony begins to explore these macabre details in his studio as fresh grist for paintings, unknowingly opening a door to a complex past that unravels his own sanity and unleashes a terrifyingly viral wave of violence that puts him on a collision course with destiny.
Candyman release delayed, BUT we’ve still got the trailer to tide us over, right?

With our much anticipated movies being cancelled left, right and centre, every time we hear an “update” our heart sinks. However, Nia DaCosta’s Candyman has so far managed to survive the barrage of knockbacks. After a bizarre year, it would be nice to end on a high note. This may well be possible with Candyman cited for a mid-October release. Yet, as we all know, 2020 has been harsh to us thus far and it won’t come as a surprise if the movie does get pushed into 2021 with the others.
However, the positive update we have today comes in the form of the MPAA’s recently announced rating of Candyman. The movie has been rated R due to “Bloody horror violence, and language including some sexual references.” This will surely come as no surprise to horror fans who have seen the trailer.
Given that the original Candyman (and all of its subsequent sequels) was rated R, it looks promising that DaCosta’s movie will pay homage to its predecessors on the gore/violence front. If you’ve not yet seen the trailer (or just want a reminder) you can check it out below. With less than three months before the potential release date we’re all waiting with baited breath. However, if you’d like to see Candyman sooner, you could always find your nearest mirror and say his name five times!
