Universal has released a brand new featurette which delves into the artistry behind the upcoming Candyman, featuring interviews with star Yahya Abdul-Mateen II, director Nia DaCosta, writer/producer Jordan Peele and artists Arnold Kemp, Cameron Spratley and Sherwin Ovid.
With Anthony’s painting career on the brink of stalling, a chance encounter with a Cabrini Green old-timer (Colman Domingo; HBO’s Euphoria, Assassination Nation) exposes Anthony to the tragically horrific nature of the true story behind Candyman. Anxious to maintain his status in the Chicago art world, Anthony begins to explore these macabre details in his studio as fresh grist for paintings, unknowingly opening a door to a complex past that unravels his own sanity and unleashes a terrifyingly viral wave of violence that puts him on a collision course with destiny.
Candyman is in UK and Irish cinemas 27th August.
