The new “Haunted Mansion” movie’s release date has been changed from August 11 to July 28, 2023, the original release date for “The Marvels.”
Justin Simien directs the second attempt at a “Haunted Mansion” film, unrelated to the 2003 film starring Eddie Murphy.
Jamie Lee Curtis, who portrays Madame Leota, said the new film is “modern, fresh, old-fashioned, and scary, but not scary like a monster movie. It’s scary like a Disney ride, and funny. If you go on that ride, there’s a lot of humor as well as the scary, ghost-y stuff.”
The film follows a doctor (Rosario Dawson) and her 9-year-old son (Chase Dillon) moving into the Haunted Mansion in New Orleans. Dawson’s character ends up calling in a priest (Owen Wilson) to exorcise the mansion. They also get help from a widowed scientist-turned-failed-paranormal expert (LaKeith Stanfield), a French Quarter psychic (Tiffany Haddish), and a historian (Danny DeVito).
