The beloved performer Ellen Burstyn, who starred in the groundbreaking 1973 horror film “The Exorcist,”. Has made her first appearance in the series since its debut 50 years ago. Upcoming sequel, “The Exorcist: Believer.”
The Academy Award winner returned to the big screen in the first trailer for the movie released on Wednesday. She plays Chris MacNeil, an actress who, like depict in the first movie. Is haunt by her daughter Regan’s (Linda Blair) possession.
I want to know whether you’ve ever seen anything like this. The Handmaid’s Tale actor Leslie Odom Jr. plays a widower in the movie Believer (trailer), who is striving to save his possessed daughter Lidya Jewett and her partner Olivia Marcum.
Dowd replies, No, but there are people out there who have.
Burstyn then appears on the screen as the person who has previously seen such a glimpse, and the mission to free the two possessed females begins.
In the video, Burstyn can be heard saying, “Exorcism is a ritual.” Someone said, “It’s going to take all of them.”
The sequel centers on Odom Jr.’s Victor, who is compelex to confront “the height of evil and, in his terror and desperation, seek out the only person alive who has witness anything like it before: Chris MacNeil,” after his young daughter and her friend vanish only to turn up years later with no recollection of what transpired.
The unsettling clip depicts Marcum and Jewett being subject to the same menacing glares that Blair made infamous in the spooky first installment of the trilogy.
According to a previous report, the three upcoming “Exorcist” movies are sequels to the original 1973 picture, with the David Gordon Green-helmed “Believer” serving as their initial entry.
Along with Jewett, Burstyn, Dowd, Marcum, and Odom Jr., “Believer” also stars Jennifer Nettles and Norbert Leo Butz.
The first horror film to ever be nominate for best picture was the groundbreaking original film. Which set new standards for the genre and garner 10 Oscar nominations. The film won two Academy Awards—one for best sound and one for best adapted screenplay—and Burstyn received a leading actress nod for her work.
