Confirmed Australian Theatrical Release Date for BLAIR WITCH
Earlier this week we reported that the highly anticipated new feature, THE WOODS from director Adam Wingard (You’re Next, The Guest) was in fact an alias for a top secret BLAIR WITCH PROJECT sequel, simply titled BLAIR WITCH. We are now happy to announce that Roadshow Films have confirmed a Thursday September 15th theatrical release for the film in Australian cinemas. The September 15th date puts us one day ahead of the US release too so us Aussie genre fans may be the first in the world to see this long awaited instalment in the franchise.
It’s been 20 years since James’s sister and her two friends vanished into the Black Hills Forest in Maryland while researching the legend of the Blair Witch, leaving a trail of theories and suspicions in their wake. James (James Allen McCune of TV’s SHAMELESS) and his friends Peter (WRECK-IT RALPH’S Brandon Scott), Ashley (Corbin Reid of TV’s DISNEY STAR DARLINGS) and film student Lisa (Callie Hernandez of upcoming LA LA LAND and Ridley Scott’s upcoming ALIEN: COVENANT) venture into the same woods each with a camera to uncover the mysteries surrounding their disappearance. At first the group is hopeful, especially when a pair of locals Lane (Wes Robinson of TV’s STATE OF AFFAIRS) and Talia (Valorie Curry of TV’s THE FOLLOWING) offer to act as guides through the dark and winding woods. But as the endless night wears on, the group is visited by a menacing presence. Slowly, they begin to realize the legend is all too real and more sinister than they could have imagined.
