Watch the new trailer for The Craft reboot

The Craft: Legacy will arrive just in time for Halloween

The upcoming, and long-awaited, reboot of The Craft has finally received its first trailer, which confirms that it will release in cinemas and on streaming platforms just before Halloween (October 28, to be precise).

The preview also gives further insight into the continuation of the witchy cult film from 1996, which will see Cailee Spaeny (Vice, Pacific Rim), Gideon Adlon (The Society), Lovie Simone (Greanleaf) and Zoey Luna take on the roles of four Catholic prep school outsiders who turn to black magic to deal with the usual high school angst.

Titled The Craft: Legacy, the new film will feature at least one direct reference to the original, in the form of a snapshot of Nancy Downs, the character portrayed by Fairuza Balk, which is glimpsed in the trailer.

Directed by Zoe Lister-Jones – whose acclaimed directorial debut came with the 2017 comedy-drama Band Aid – the new film is helmed by Blumhouse Productions, the production company behind BlacKkKlansman, Get Out, and the latest installment in the long-running Halloween franchise, Halloween Kills.
