Ask any Outdated, they’ll inform you: It’s loopy that it’s been 50 years for the reason that world first met The Exorcist. 50 years of that creepy picture of Max von Sydow standing outdoors that glowing window in Washington D.C.? Unbelievable! Nevertheless it’s true.
Much more unbelievable: 50 years later, unique Exorcist star Ellen Burstyn is reprising her function as Chris MacNeil in a brand new sequel referred to as The Exorcist: Believer. Chris was the mom of Regan, the little lady who bought possessed by unholy evil within the unique Exorcist movie. Regan herself is seemingly a no-show on this new film — though actress Linda Blair was apparently a “technical advisor” to director David Gordon Inexperienced — however Chris is recruited by a younger father (Leslie Odom Jr.) whose daughter appears to have been possessed by the identical demon that took management of Regan all these a long time in the past.
Take a look at the trailer for the brand new movie beneath:
