Following the recent unveiling of the first trailer for The Exorcist: Believer, which captivated audiences during screenings of Universal Pictures' Oppenheimer last weekend, news of the 2025 release for the next chapter in The Exorcist franchise from Universal Pictures and Blumhouse Productions has generated excitement among horror fans.
The Exorcist franchise, pioneered by director William Friedkin in the original film, achieved phenomenal success, grossing over $441 million during its 48-year run, making it the highest-grossing domestic horror film of all time. The gripping narrative revolves around a 12-year-old girl possessed by a mysterious entity, and the relentless efforts made by her mother and two Catholic priests to save her.
The online premiere of the trailer, featuring the brilliant Ellen Burstyn once again battling malevolent forces, took place on Tuesday. The first film of the planned trilogy, The Exorcist: Believer, is scheduled for theatrical release on October 13. Helmed by director David Gordon Green, the initial chapter introduces Victor Fielding, portrayed by Leslie Odom, Jr., as he navigates the challenges of raising his daughter, Angela, played by Lidya Jewett, following the tragic loss of his wife twelve years earlier. A chain of unsettling events compels Victor to confront the darkest depths of evil. Ellen Burstyn, an Oscar winner, reprises her iconic role as Chris MacNeil after almost five decades, marking a significant moment for fans of the original 1973 film, The Exorcist.
The Exorcist: Deceiver, the highly anticipated second installment in the thrilling new trilogy by director David Gordon Green, is set to make its grand debut on April 18, 2025, with a wide release.
