About The Witches remake
After months without news about the remake, HBO Max has released the first poster, and trailer of the film that will be released on the streaming platform in the USA on October 22. The release also reveals that The Witches will be released in theaters internationally very soon, although they have not confirmed the date due to the coronavirus pandemic. You can watch the trailer and see the first poster and images of the film, below:
The trailer, narrated by Rock, reveals that Zemeckis may have transplanted the events to 1967 Alabama, but the themes and tone of the story remain the same, with The Witches planning to destroy all the children by turning them into mice. The visuals are sumptuous too, with Zemeckis in a rare recent form, vibrantly bringing the world of The Witches to life. However, it's the main trio of Spencer, Hathaway, and Tucci who gets the most attention, and for good reason.
Each of them are trying their best in their roles, and it seems like scenes with any combination of all three should be a delight for kids and adults alike. Plus, the movie doesn't seem to skimp on the story's scariest elements, despite its PG rating, and will hopefully terrorize a whole new generation of kids. Millennial parents around the world will likely be delighted to put their children in front of The Witches like their parents did 30 years ago, and to give them a dimmed look at the world of horror movies.
