‘The Exorcist: Believer’ Trailer: David Gordon Green Directs Blumhouse’s New Sequel To The Iconic Film

2 mins read

Blumhouse scored huge box office numbers when David Gordon Green took on a new sequel to the “Halloween” franchise back in 2018. That resulted in three hit films (though critics haven’t been too kind to at least two of those movies). Now, Blumhouse is hoping Green can do it again, but this time, he’s tackling “The Exorcist” franchise.

As seen in the trailer for “The Exorcist: Believer,” David Gordon Green has directed a sequel that does exactly what the 2018 “Halloween” sequel did—forget the rest of the franchise and make a direct follow-up to the classic original. But for ‘Believer,’ the stakes are higher because the demon doesn’t just possess one girl, it possesses two young girls. Dun, dun, dunnnnnn.

The cast includes Leslie Odom, Jr., Ann Dowd, Jennifer Nettles, Norbert Leo Butz, Lidya Jewett, Olivia Marcum, and Ellen Burstyn. In the case of the latter, despite previous sequels in this franchise, ‘Believer’ marks the first time Burstyn has returned to ‘The Exorcist since the acclaimed original. “The Exorcist: Believer” is directed by David Gordon Green, who co-wrote the script alongside Peter Sattler.

“The Exorcist: Believer” arrives in theaters on October 13. Yes, Friday the 13th. You can watch the trailer below.

Here’s the synopsis:

Since the death of his pregnant wife in a Haitian earthquake 12 years ago, Victor Fielding (Tony winner and Oscar® nominee Leslie Odom, Jr.; One Night in Miami, Hamilton) has raised their daughter, Angela (Lidya Jewett, Good Girls) on his own. But when Angela and her friend Katherine (newcomer Olivia Marcum), disappear in the woods, only to return three days later with no memory of what happened to them, it unleashes a chain of events that will force Victor to confront the nadir of evil and, in his terror and desperation, seek out the only person alive who has witnessed anything like it before: Chris MacNeil.
