It was announced earlier today on the official Poltergeist Facebook page that indeed, instead of the original July release of the remake of the beloved 1982 classic, that it will be coming to us a lot earlier! The source comes from the official Boxoffice website where it states the new release date is May 22nd, 2015. So it looks like the film will be kicking off the summer blockbusters. I for one am thrilled to see a horror movie starting the bout of Summer cinema. Fantastic.
Poltergeist has been rebooted with a new cast and a contemporary setting 33 years after the original made the suburbs feel unsafe. Director Gil Kenan (Monster House) was rocked by the original film and vows to get the contemporary version right when it hits theaters in 3-D and 2-D.
