‘The Boy 2’ Gets An Official release date

It has been three years since The Boy was released now The Boy 2 will officially be released into theaters on July 26, 2019.

The second installment will focus on a family moving into the Heelshire Mansion estate who is unfamiliar with the history. Their young son makes a new friend who he eerily calls Brahms. This film is once again directed by William Brent Bell and will star Katie Holmes, Ralph Ineson, Owain Yeoman, and Christopher Convery

The Boy 2 will be released around the same time that the Child’s Play remake and Annabelle 3 will be hitting theaters, I’m curious to see how Brahms will handle the competition. The first one had a great storyline so let’s see how the second plays out, I can’t wait to see and hear more news regarding this sequel.

COMING SOON: The Boy (2016)

The Boy with Lauren Cohan

The Boy

The Boy, which was originally titled The Inhabitant, is scheduled for release in January of 2016. Unfortunately, the name change may confuse viewers with the recently released The Boy, directed by Craig William McNeil and starring David Morse and Rainn Wilson, but with which is has no connection. This one is directed by William Brent Bell and stars Lauren Cohan.

Cohan is best known as Maggie on The Walking Dead. William Brent Bell is probably known best for the infuriating The Devil Inside and its incredibly dumb ending. Before that he directed the lame Stay Alive, but then in 2013 he gave us Wer, one of the best werewolf movies in recent years. Wer, sadly didn't get the wide release of The Devil Inside, and was woefully underseen and underrated.

Early rumors were that it would be very similar to James Wan's The Conjuring. However with the release of the official plot it looks more like Annabelle, possibly with a little Gremlins mixed in.

The plot of The Boy has Cohan playing an English nanny hired to babysit a life-sized doll. The couple who own him treat the doll as a real boy and use him as a coping mechanism for the loss of their son. Cohan as Greta, is given a specific set of rules to follow, which she fucks up of course. This leads to spooky happenings, leading Greta to believe the boy might actually be alive.

I really want to trust Bell after Wer, but the memory of that final scene in The Devil Inside still haunts me. That and this seems a hell of a lot like a cheap attempt to cash in on the success of The Conjuring and Annabelle. Still Lauren Cohan is very watchable and it looks like she will be getting to use her native Brit accent in this.

 

So I'm probably going to give this a hopeful, but realistic chance and check it out. Hopefully it will be more than a cheap rip off of a film I actually didn’t care that much about (Annabelle). With Cohan along for the ride it should at least be interesting for Walking Dead fans, and she is definitely easy on the eyes.

What ever the outcome I'll give you my opinion after The Boy's release January 22, 2016.
