The Black Phone 2 Release Date: Universal Studios has recently announced the release date for the highly anticipated sequel to the horror hit “The Black Phone.” Set to hit theaters on June 27, 2025, “Blumhouse’s The Black Phone 2” serves as a continuation of the spine-chilling narrative that captivated audiences worldwide in 2022.
The original film, based on a short story penned by Joe Hill, followed the gripping tale of Finney, a resourceful 13-year-old boy portrayed by Mason Thames, who finds himself in the clutches of a ruthless kidnapper portrayed by Ethan Hawke.
Imprisoned within a soundproof basement, Finney’s only lifeline becomes a disconnected phone on the wall that unexpectedly rings, enabling him to hear the voices of the killer’s previous victims. Determined to prevent Finney from suffering their grisly fate, the eerie voices add an additional layer of suspense to the heart-pounding storyline.
Produced by Jason Blum for Blumhouse, the original film also showcased the talents of Jeremy Davis and Madeleine McGraw, uniting Hawke with the creative minds behind the 2012 horror gem “Sinister.”
The successful collaboration between Scott Derrickson and C. Robert Cargill, who penned the screenplay, paved the way for the inception of “The Black Phone,” adding to the duo’s extensive portfolio of impactful cinematic ventures. Following the triumph of “Sinister,” the pair was later entrusted by Marvel Studios to helm the acclaimed 2016 release “Doctor Strange,” solidifying their status as notable figures in the realm of suspenseful and thrilling storytelling.
