Witch, The: Robert Eggers Indie Hit Rereleased

If you didn’t see Robert Eggers’ The Witch, you have a second chance.

Distributor A24 has announced a re-release of the film in theaters this weekend.  In keeping with the moody drama’s Satanic accoutrements, the movie will play on an even 666 screens.

The expansion pits The Witch against faith-based drama “God’s Not Dead 2” this weekend, an irony the edgy distributor relishes.

It had happened before: The film originally opened against Kevin Reynolds’ “Risen,” about a Roman investigation into the resurrection of Jesus Christ.

A24 acquired “The Witch” out of the Sundance Film Festival in 2015. It opened on February 19 to $8.8 million domestic and has grossed $24 million to date.
