To be honest, I thought that someone had already done a remake of Black Christmas but I guess we’re getting a new one. Maybe it’s going to become a new holiday tradition. Every year, we’ll get a new Black Christmas and we can go to the theater and all yell out, “The call is coming from inside the house!” at the same time.
And you know what? I think that’ll bring people together. I mean, we can only spend so much time hoping that the MCU will continue to bring filmgoers together. Myself, I’ve been a bit disenchanted ever since Natasha died in Avengers: Endgame and the fact that the most charming member of the MCU has apparently been taken out of the MCU and sent back to Sony kind of makes me wonder if perhaps the MCU’s glory days might be over with.
My point is, we need a new franchise to bring us together and an annual remake of Black Christmas might just be what Doctor Strange ordered.
Anyway, here’s the latest trailer for Black Christmas, which will be released on December 13th. Hopefully, somebody in Hollywood learned a lesson from the mismarketing of David Fincher’s version of The Girl With The Dragon Tattoo and they won’t advertise this as being the “Feel Bad Movie Of The Holidays.”
(Yes, 8 years later and I’m still bitter about that.)
Here’s the trailer!
