Originally slated for release on July 26th and then shifted to December 6th, STX Entertainment has moved Brahms: The Boy II to an even later date. The sequel starring Katie Holmes will now hit theaters on February 21, 2020.
The shift isn’t surprising at all considering no campaign has started – there’s no poster or trailers – and the clutter of summer releases that included two other doll-themed films – Annabelle Comes Home and Child’s Play – should have rightfully scared them off from their earlier date. Now it will open around Valentine’s Day.
William Brent Bell returned to direct, and Stacey Menear returned to script.
Unaware of the terrifying history of Heelshire Mansion, a young family moves into the estate, where their young son soon makes an unsettling new friend, an eerily life-like doll he calls Brahms.
Holmes stars in STXfilms and Lakeshore Entertainment’s The Boy II alongside Ralph Ineson (The Witch), Owain Yeoman (The Belko Experiment) and Christopher Convery (“Gotham”).
