CANDYMAN Clip Titled “T Tells B” Shows Yahya Abdul-Mateen II Trying to Summon Candyman.
A new clip has been released from the upcoming horror film Candyman. The film stars Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, and in the clip, he tries to summon the Candyman in a playful manner, not taking the situation seriously and trying to scare his girlfriend played by Teyonah Parris.
This new take on the Candyman urban legend story comes from filmmaker Nia DaCosta and co-writers Jordan Peele and Win Rosenfeld, and will return audiences to the Cabrini-Green neighborhood in Chicago.
Here’s the film’s full synopsis:
For as long as residents can remember, the housing projects of Chicago’s Cabrini Green neighborhood were terrorized by a word-of-mouth ghost story about a supernatural killer with a hook for a hand, easily summoned by those daring to repeat his name five times into a mirror. In present day, a decade after the last of the Cabrini towers were torn down, visual artist Anthony McCoy (Yahya Abdul-Mateen II; HBO’s Watchmen, Us) and his girlfriend, gallery director Brianna Cartwright (Teyonah Parris; If Beale Street Could Talk, The Photograph), move into a luxury loft condo in Cabrini, now gentrified beyond recognition and inhabited by upwardly mobile millennials.
With Anthony’s painting career on the brink of stalling, a chance encounter with a Cabrini Green old-timer (Colman Domingo; HBO’s Euphoria, Assassination Nation) exposes Anthony to the tragically horrific nature of the true story behind Candyman. Anxious to maintain his status in the Chicago art world, Anthony begins to explore these macabre details in his studio as fresh grist for paintings, unknowingly opening a door to a complex past that unravels his own sanity and unleashes a terrifyingly viral wave of violence that puts him on a collision course with destiny.
Candyman premieres in theaters on August 27, 2021.
