We’re still waiting on The Grudge reboot trailer, but how about a poster? The new take on the tale of a haunted house that spreads a curse to all who dare set foot in it comes from director Nicolas Pesce and producer Sam Raimi, and is set to give us all the creeps in January. Rumor has it that a trailer will be dropping any day now, but if you’re itching for something, this poster – which features the trademark long black hair that’s become synonymous not just with The Grudge franchise but also J-horror in general. Check out The Grudge reboot poster below.

The Grudge reboot recently got bumped to next year, so we’re going to have to wait a while to see it. But when we finally lay eyes on this thing, it’s going to be much different than any Grudge film that came before. According to Grudge reboot director Nicolas Pesce, the new film is more like a police thriller akin to Seven rather than your standard ghost story.
If you were looking forward to getting the crap scared out of you by a ghostly woman with hair in her face and her cat-voiced ghost son this summer…well, you’re in for a longer wait. Screen Gems has moved its reboot of The Grudge from this summer to early 2020, a move that could mean behind-the-issues. Or it could mean the studio seeing a box office opportunity and seizing it.

Sony has enough confidence in their The Grudge reboot that they’ve decided to move the release date up several weeks. The Nicolas Pesce directed horror show will now arrive in theaters in June of 2019, instead of August. The reboot stars Andrea Riseborough, Demián Bichir, John Cho, Lin Shaye and Jacki Weaver, and takes the story into the heart of American suburbia. More on the new Grudge reboot release date below.
The upcoming The Grudge remake may be in a bit of trouble. Taka lchise, producer of the original Japanese Grudge (Ju-on) franchise, has filed a breach of contract lawsuit, claiming that he was not offered a producer credit on the new movie. The Grudge remake is already filming, but this new development might curse it to an uncertain future.
