Since the COVID-19 situation is getting back on track in the nation, filmmakers are hopeful to bring back the audience to the cinema halls. Earlier today Akshay Kumar announced the release date of his upcoming film Bell Bottom. Now according to the latest reports the Hollywood’s hit horror franchise The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, will release on July 2, if things remain getting better.
A source was quoted by Bollywood Hungama as saying, “The situation in the West has improved significantly. A lot of films have been released there for a couple of months. The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It released in most markets on June 4. It couldn’t release on the same day in India but now that cinemas in many places are expected to open in the days to come, Warner Bros has decided to take the plunge. It plans to release The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It on July 2. An official announcement will soon take place after which the team will begin the promotions.”
The source adds, “The plan is that even if 5-6 states are open, Warner Bros would like to go ahead with the release. If that doesn’t happen, it might be postponed to July 9. But as of now, the team of Warner Bros is seriously looking at releasing The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It on July 2, 2021.”
The tabloid also quoted, “The earlier part of the franchise, The Conjuring 2, was a surprise success in 2016. It collected nearly Rs. 62 crore. Also, horror films are best enjoyed on the big screen. So The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It can have a great run in cinemas, even though it’s releasing a bit late in India. Also, exhibitors will be motivated to open if makers of exciting films like The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It and Bellbottom announce their release dates and make it clear that they want to come to cinemas. It’s heartening that the market will be revived sooner than expected.”
