Exactly 50 years ago this fall, the most terrifying horror film in history landed on screens, shocking audiences around the world. Now, a new chapter begins in The Exorcist: Believer.



While The Exorcist: Believer will be in theaters for a while, the movie will only be in IMAX theaters for a week, giving you the ultimate viewing experience.



Since the death of his pregnant wife in a Haitian earthquake 12 years ago, Victor Fielding (Tony winner and Oscar® nominee Leslie Odom, Jr.; One Night in Miami, Hamilton) has raised their daughter, Angela (Lidya Jewett, Good Girls), on his own. But when Angela and her friend Katherine (newcomer Olivia Marcum) disappear in the woods, only to return three days later with no memory of what happened to them, it unleashes a chain of events that will force Victor to confront the nadir of evil and, in his terror and desperation, seek out the only person alive who has witnessed anything like it before Chris MacNeil.



For the first time since the 1973 film, Oscar® winner Ellen Burstyn reprises her iconic role as Chris MacNeil, an actress who has been forever altered by what happened to her daughter Regan five decades before.



The film also stars Emmy winner Ann Dowd (The Handmaid’s Tale, Hereditary) as Victor and Angela’s neighbor, and Grammy winner Jennifer Nettles (Harriet, The Righteous Gemstones) and two-time Tony winner Norbert Leo Butz (Fosse/Verdon, Bloodline) as the parents of Katherine, Angela’s friend.



When The Exorcist, based on the best-selling book by William Peter Blatty, was released, it changed film forever, obliterating box office records and earning 10 Academy Award® nominations, becoming the first horror film ever nominated for Best Picture.



The Exorcist: Believer is from the screenplay by Peter Sattler (Camp X-Ray) and David Gordon Green, from a story by Scott Teems (Halloween Kills), Danny McBride (Halloween trilogy), and David Gordon Green, based on characters created by William Peter Blatty.



Jason Blum produces the film for Blumhouse, and David Robinson and James G. Robinson for Morgan Creek Entertainment.



The executive producers are Danny McBride, David Gordon Green, Stephanie Allain, Ryan Turek, and Atilla Yücer. Universal Pictures presents a Blumhouse and Morgan Creek Entertainment production in association with Rough House Pictures.



The Exorcist: Believer was originally scheduled to open in theaters on October 13th; however, it was moved up a week to avoid the new Taylor Swift movie. Yes, really. The movie will open in IMAX theaters on October 6, 2023. Get your tickets here.
