After a hiatus since 2005, The Exorcist franchise is making a return this October with “The Exorcist: Believer.”
A new official trailer has been released, offering a glimpse into the legacy sequel’s approach, reintroducing Chris MacNeil (played by Ellen Burstyn) and hinting at the horrors to come.
The central question emerges: who will survive, and what will be left of them?
Directed by David Gordon Green for Universal, Blumhouse, and Morgan Creek, this sequel marks the beginning of a new trilogy.
The first film of the trilogy is set for release on October 6, 2023, starring Leslie Odom Jr.
The plot follows Victor Fielding (Leslie Odom, Jr.), who has raised his daughter Angela (Lidya Jewett) alone since the tragic loss of his pregnant wife in a Haitian earthquake.
When Angela and her friend Katherine (Olivia Marcum) vanish in the woods and return three days later with no memory of the events, it sets off a series of terrifying occurrences.
In his desperation, Victor seeks out the only living person who has witnessed something like this before: Chris MacNeil (Ellen Burstyn).
Ann Dowd, Raphael Sbarge, and Jennifer Nettles are also part of the cast.
Peter Sattler and Gordon Green co-wrote the script, with a story by Green, Scott Teems, and Danny McBride.
“The Exorcist: Believer” serves as the sixth installment in The Exorcist franchise.
It directly follows the events of the original 1973 film, ignoring all previous sequels and prequels.
