Warner Bros. released the first poster of “Malignant,” the horror film from legendary filmmaker James Wan.
The premiere date has been set for September 10. The film will be released simultaneously in theaters and streaming on HBO Max.
In addition to the poster, Wan revealed details of the project:
“I finally finished filming last week. It was supposed to be my “little horror thriller,” but the pandemic made it last as long as the big guys.
I am very excited for this movie. I don’t even know how to describe it. I wanted to do something original and innovative, and different from my other works, but still in the spirit of the horror thrillers I grew up with. Wait!”
The film recently received a high age rating (R) and may only be viewed by adults or minors accompanied by a guardian.
The report was classified by AMP for “strong violence, bloody images and language”.
The terror will move away from the supernatural theme and give way to an investigative and murder plot, much like the Giallo Film subgenre. For those who don’t know, the Giallo Films originated in Italy before the terror of the American slasher and are based on serial killer crimes. They inspired classics like “Panic” and “Halloween”.
In an interview with The Hollywood Reporter, actress Annabelle Wallis (“ Peaky Blinders ”), who stars in the production, said that she hadn’t seen anything like the project in her entire career and that it would surprise the public.
“I can guarantee you that we have something very special coming up, it’s a brave, dazzling, original and unpredictable film. I haven’t seen anything like it in my entire career. And I think the audience will be really impressed because James [Wan] is in love with what he does … This film literally reflects the art of cinema, and I’m really excited to know how people are going to react.
Wallis also revealed how he started collaborating with Wan and said he intends to work with him whenever he gets the chance.
“When I met him I was going through a moment when I had to take a risk and throw myself into my head [na carreira de atriz]. When James watched my performance on “The Loudest Voice”, he came to me to work on “Annabelle”. I already know his work and I trust his talent, when he told me about this new project, I could not refuse. I have found him to be a wonderful collaborator and I know we will continue to work together for years to come. He’s nice and is so good at what he does.
In addition to directing, Wan also signs the screenplay, alongside Ingrid Bisu.
The cast includes Maddie Hasson, Jake Abel, George Young, Ingrid Bisu, Michole Briana White and Jacqueline McKenzie.
