‘Brahms: The Boy II’ Unsurprisingly Shifts Out of Summer; Set for December Release

Originally slated for release on July 26th, STX Entertainment has shifted Brahms: The Boy II to a later date. The sequel starring Katie Holmes will now hit theaters on December 6, 2019.
The shift isn’t surprising at all considering no campaign has started – there’s no poster or trailers – and the clutter of summer release that includes two other doll-themed films – Annabelle Comes Home and Child’s Play – should have rightfully scared them off. An early holiday release sets the stage for a stronger performance.
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”).
