Paco Plaza’s Netflix Movie ‘Veronica’ Gets a Prequel With ‘Sister Death’

Ti Westthe new slasher movie X was released by A24 in theaters on Thursday, March 17, scarring $4.4 million in its opening weekend across 2,865 theaters in the United States.

In its second weekend of release, X fell to #6 on the box office charts, with the current domestic total at $8,298,028 and the worldwide total at $8,690,944.

It’s likely that at this point the film will eventually hit $10 million at the worldwide box office, which isn’t too shabby for such a wildly niche horror movie release from A24.

The good news here is that a prequel to X was commissioned and in fact already filmed, with a sequel titled pearl teased after end credits X in theatres. Rather than a post-credits scene, we were treated to a full trailer, with the next pearl centered on the film’s villain. mia goth will reprise the role of Pearl, with the film set decades before X.

West tells Bloody Disgusting, “I’m so grateful to A24 for doing this. Part of the idea of ​​this movie that’s cool to me is that there’s something more important to all of this. What can I tell you about pearl, because we’ve done it before and it’s done, it’s really a story about Pearl. So you will learn more about her. It is stylistically very different from X. You don’t need one without the other, but they enrich each other in a specific way. In the way that X is affected by, say, 1970s independent horror cinema and American cinema, pearl is influenced by a very different era of cinema. If we do the third, it will be affected by another type of cinema.

“It was amazing. Yes [A24] didn’t like the script, we just wouldn’t have made the movie,” adds West. “They were the only people to do it with. I was in quarantine for two weeks in New Zealand when I wrote pearlwith this idea of ​​”I don’t know if I could convince them to do this, but if I could write something good enough”, and Mia [Goth] and collaborate on FaceTime. I was like, ‘If we can get something that’s undeniably good enough. If they really believe in it as they say, they will. Then A24 called. They believed in it, and we did the second one.

“I’m glad you see pearl in the near future.”
