This Halloween season bring the big screen home!
Warner Bros. Pictures will premiere the family event film of the season, "Roald Dahl's The Witches," exclusively on HBO Max.
The diabolically wicked reimagining of the beloved tale by Warner Bros. Pictures and Robert Zemeckis comes exclusively to HBO Max in the U.S. on October 22 and hits theaters around the world beginning October 28. The Oscar-winning director and master storyteller who gave us "Forrest Gump," the Christmas classic "The Polar Express," and the "Back to the Future" trilogy, brings a fresh sense of humor along with warmth and the unexpected to what is sure to be a Halloween favorite: Roald Dahl's beloved story "The Witches."
Zemeckis is joined by a world-class team of filmmakers, including Alfonso Cuarón, Guillermo del Toro and Kenya Barris, for this fantasy adventure about a young boy who stumbles upon a secret coven of witches and, with the help of his loving grandmother, tries to stop their evil plan to turn the world’s children into mice. The cast includes powerhouse performances from Anne Hathaway, Octavia Spencer, Stanley Tucci, Kristin Chenoweth and Chris Rock, with newcomer Jahzir Kadeen Bruno as the brave young hero.
"'The Witches' is a wonderful reimagining of Roald Dahl's timeless tale that combines world-class filmmaking with fantastic performances. It's fun for the whole family and ideal for this time of year," said Toby Emmerich, Chairman, Warner Bros. Pictures Group.
"This film, with its stellar cast, is outstanding," said Casey Bloys, Chief Content Officer for HBO and HBO Max. "We are thrilled to be able to use our platform to deliver timely, relevant and engaging new content during this time when the theatrical experience is not available to everyone."
The film will also be featured in HBO Max's "Halloween is Here" spotlight page, alongside a curated roster of more than 140 movies, series and Halloween-themed TV episodes, hand-picked by HBO Max's dedicated editorial team.
