STX Films had a major hit in 2016 with The Boy, which made $65 million worldwide on a $10 million budget. Now as profitable horror films tend to do, the movie’s success has led to an upcoming sequel! That’s right, STX Films is presenting us with The Boy 2. The studio has officially dated the movie for a July 26th, 2019 release.
It’s interesting to see new horror franchises blossom in Hollywood, even if certain other staples like Friday the 13th remain dormant. It really gives me hope for which properties could receive sequel announcements next, and with crossed fingers I hope the horror genre will only escalate with quality.
Interestingly we also have the Child’s Play remake and Annabelle 3 hitting theaters around the same time. Will Brahms be able to compete alongside Annabelle and a new robotic Chucky? Only time will tell Brahm’s destiny in The Boy 2.

In the new film from STX Films and Lakeshore Entertainment…
Unaware of the terrifying history of Heelshire Mansion, a young family moves into the estate, where their young son soon makes an unsettling new friend, an eerily life-like doll he calls Brahms.
The movie will star Katie Holmes, Ralph Ineson, Owain Yeoman, and Christopher Convery.
William Brent Bell is once again directing from another script by Stacey Menear. Lakeshore’s Tom Rosenberg, Gary Lucchesi and Eric Reid are producing, alongside Matt Berenson, Jim Wedaa and Roy Lee.
The Boy 2 hits theaters on July 26, 2019.
