Will we ever get to see AMITYVILLE: THE AWAKENING? Directed by Franck Khalfoun (P2, the MANIAC remake), the latest entry in the franchise that began with THE AMITYVILLE HORROR in 1979 has been sitting on a shelf at Dimension Films since 2014. The first release date it was given was January 2, 2015, but then it was delayed until April of 2016. It was given a couple different April '16 dates before getting bounced to January 6, 2017. You may have noticed that the marketing for a movie that was supposed to be coming out in less than three weeks has been rather lacking, and there's a reason for that - it's not coming out in January.

Dimension has announced that they have changed the movie's release date yet again, pushing it back six months to June 30, 2017.

You might think that a movie would just get dumped after two and a half years of delays, but Dimension still intends to give AMITYVILLE: THE AWAKENING a wide theatrical release. Will that release come on June 30th? We'll have to wait and see if its fifth date sticks.

Produced by Jason Blum and written by Khalfoun, Daniel Farrands, and Casey La Scala, the film has the following synopsis: 

Belle, her little sister, and her comatose twin brother move into a new house with their single mother Joan in order to save money to help pay for her brother’s expensive healthcare. But when strange phenomena begin to occur in the house including the miraculous recovery of her brother, Belle begins to suspect her Mother isn’t telling her everything and soon realizes they just moved into the infamous Amityville house.

Jennifer Jason Leigh, Bella Thorne, McKenna Grace, Cameron Monaghan, Kurtwood Smith, Taylor Spreitler, Thomas Mann, and Jennifer Morrison star.

Below you can see the trailer that we first shared in August of 2014.
