Scott Derrickson was known for his scary work in the horror genre prior to directing the 2016 Marvel feature Doctor Strange, including the terrifying 2011 thriller Sinister, the chilling 2005 film The Exorcism of Emily Rose, and the gloomy and dark 2014 film Deliver Us From Evil.
Derrickson will return to horror next year with The Black Phone, which will be produced by Jason Blum and based on a script co-written by Derrickson and his frequent collaborator C. Robert Cargill. With the film’s release date approaching, you’re undoubtedly wondering what The Black Phone is all about. We’ve thought of everything:

What is the release date of Black Phone?
On June 24, 2022, The Black Phone will finally hit theaters. The terrifying film will now compete with Baz Luhrmann’s highly stylized rock n’ roll biopic Elvis, starring Austin Butler as the King and Tom Hanks as Colonel Tom Parker, the King’s renowned manager.
It was supposed to be released on February 3rd, alongside Roland Emmerich’s sci-fi film Moonfall and Jackass Forever. Furthermore, the picture was originally set to be released a week earlier on January 28 but was ultimately pushed back a week.
The summer release date appears to be a vote of confidence from Universal and Blumhouse, who are likely hoping to repeat the success of previous summer horror films like The Conjuring.
The plot of the Black Phone:
The Grabber (Ethan Hawke), a serial murderer who has been kidnapping and murdering children in the neighborhood, is the focus of the film. Finney Shaw (Mason Thames) is the killer’s latest prisoner, but he has a chance to flee after being contacted by the killer’s former victims.
The official plot is as follows: “Finney Shaw is a shy but bright 13-year-old boy who is being held captive by a vicious, disguised killer in a soundproof basement. When a phone on the wall starts to ring, he quickly realizes that he can hear the voices of the murderer’s prior victims, who are hell-bent on ensuring that Finney does not suffer the same fate as them.”
The cast of The Black Phone:
The scary Grabber, played by Ethan Hawke, kidnaps Mason Thames’ Finney Shaw throughout the events of the film. While the tale revolves around these two individuals, for the most part, the project also features a fantastic supporting cast.
Mr. Shaw, Finney’s alcoholic single father, is played by Jeremy Davies, and Madeleine McGraw plays his sister Gwen, who believes she is having psychic dreams that will lead her to Finney’s location.
The Black Phone trailer:
In case you missed it, here is the first official trailer for The Black Phone, which was released on October 13th, just in time to coincide with the release of another Blumhouse film, Halloween Kills. The trailer plays on the creep factor while also evoking memories of Andy Muschietti’s original It flick.
On April 26, six months after the original trailer’s release (though the film’s postponement to June is likely the reason), a second trailer for the picture was released online, just in time for exhibitors at this year’s CinemaCon. The trailer doesn’t necessarily reveal anything new, but it does have multiple blurbs from critics praising Ethan Hawke’s erratic performance as well as the fact that the picture is truly disturbing.
