‘Beetlejuice’ Sequel Gets Official Title; Pic Still Set For Post-Labor Day Theatrical Release

Warner Bros’ Beetlejuice sequel has landed an official title so nice they named it twice: Beetlejuice Beetlejuice 2024 A.D. Check out the poster below.

The title was announced on Warner Bros.’ and the sequel’s social media. The pic comes out on September 6, the post-Labor Day box office horror launchpad weekend made famous by the Burbank lot with the It and Nun franchises. Exhibitors told us that for a blip, due to the actors strike, Warners was contemplating pushing the theatrical release of Beetlejuice 2, but director Tim Burton is making that date after doing a few days of last-minute shots post-strike.

The original 1988 movie from Burton grossed $75M domestic and forged his creative collaboration with Michael Keaton, with the two soon reteaming on Batman and Batman Returns. Let’s also not forget the live-action version of Disney’s Dumbo.

Beetlejuice Beetlejuice reunites Keaton with the pic’s original castmembers Winona Ryder and Catherine O’Hara. Joining in the mix this time around are Wednesday star Jenna Ortega, Willem Dafoe, Monica Bellucci and Justin Theroux.

The film’s Vermont set was burglarized back in mid-July. State police shared a post on X with photos of the sculpture piece that was stolen from the set of the movie in East Corinth.
