Henry Cavill and Sam Clafin co-star as brothers to Milly Bobby Brown’s titular character in ’s Enola Holmes, and thanks to a streamer releasing a teaser trailer, a release date for the film has now been unveiled.

Per a report from RadioTimes, the aforementioned streamer released a teaser trailer for the film yesterday, August 17, 2020, with the caption: “alone loshme reeebtpms wnettyrhitd.”

Obviously an anagram, the above words when deciphered, reads: “Enola Holmes September Twenty third.” This means that the movie is set to arrive on the streaming platform on that date.

According to JustJared, the 61-year-old actor who played Paul Atreides in the first movie (a role played by in director Denis Villeneuve’s recent version) says the remake should have been a series.

Speaking with IndieWire, he said the following words:

“My feelings about it evolve over time. I look at it as a flawed gem. It’s stunning in so many ways. As a story, and trying to recreate that story, it’s almost impossible. It’s incredibly dense, and a little bit like a house of cards. If you leave out one element of the story or another, the structure tends to wobble, and you don’t get the full effect.

I would lobby for three or more films, because it has that kind of potential to really open up. In my imagination, I always thought it would be great to approach it like a Game of Thrones model, where you have seasons, or at least a 10-part series, or a 12-part series. You could really go from beginning to end.”

Directed by Nia DaCosta, the forthcoming horror remake of the classic is said to be a “spiritual sequel” to the original, and Tony Todd, who played the fearful eponymous character in the first film, will return.

In Candyman, Abdul-Mateen’s Anthony McCoy is an artist who moves to the former site of a housing project in Chicago, where the Candyman legend originated from.

The trailer sees McCoy try to unravel the mystery behind the rumors and at a point when he raises his hand to a mirror, sees a hook reflected where his hand should be. It could be nothing but a figment of his imagination as nothing was confirmed at the time.

However, a magazine cover by Total Film has revealed the secret with Abdul-Mateen making an appearance on it, appearing in Candyman makeup and wielding the character’s signature hook. The implication is that he will transform into the monstrous character in the course of the film.
