Spirit Halloween is expected to arrive this fall
Halloween spirit was presented at Cannes with Film Mode Entertainment in charge of international sales. It is already slated for a North American release by Strike Back Studios in association with Film Mode Entertainment.
“We are thrilled to present exclusive never-before-seen images of Halloween spirit to buyers around the world for the first time at Cannes and to give audiences around the world a taste of the ultimate family and children’s adventure film,” Epstein reportedly said. “The global market response continues to be positively overwhelming.”
“One of the reasons I immediately connected to the script is that it’s very inspired by some of my favorite adventure movies for kids growing up from The Goonies, Gremlins, Monster Squad and so many great movies made by Amblin Entertainment,” added Ahmed.
Halloween spirit is set to release later this year, likely just in time for the Halloween season, but no official release date has been announced as of yet.
