Another wicked surprise release serves as a reminder that Halloween can still be enjoyed at home. HBO Max started October with a massive announcement: The Witches is debuting on October 28th. Blackish creator Kenya Barris and Oscar Winner Guillermo Del Toro teamed up to write this fresh take on Roald Dahl’s classic.
Anne Hathaway, Octavia Spencer, Chris Rock, and Stanley Tucci star in the newest adaptation, which was scheduled for theatrical release on October 2nd. With COVID-19 conditions preventing theatres from re-opening in Los Angeles and New York, Warner Bros. is now using HBO Max to release the anticipated film. Visionary Robert Zemeckis is taking the director’s reins on this one. Check out the trailer below to enjoy its whimsical, campy tone.
