First Look: Keyart of ‘THE FIRST OMEN’ – 2024 Release Date Set


When a young American woman is sent to Rome to begin a life of service to the church, she encounters a darkness that causes her to question her own faith and uncovers a terrifying conspiracy that hopes to bring about the birth of evil incarnate.

The key-art for 20th Century Studios' psychological thriller “The First Omen.”

  20th Century Studios has released the first look at the creepy key-art for its forthcoming psychological thriller “The First Omen,” directed by Arkasha Stevenson (Brand New Cherry FlavorChannel Zero). The film is a prequel to original 1976 Richard Donner classic, The Omen, and will open on April 5, 2024 exclusively in theaters nationwide.

This announcement comes on the wake of the Walt Disney Company, 20th Century‘s mother ship, pushing back into the future most of it tent-pole titles, with release dates up-in-the-air. But here at LATIN HORROR, that is not our concern and we’re delighted to see the horror genre come to the rescue once again—an ongoing industry paradigm that is all too often quietly swept under the rug at the major studios and larger distribution boutiques, I must say. So there’s that…and we see you, too. 🙂

When first released during the decade of Disco, The Omen became an instant box-office hit amassing a respectable $60 million domestically, and featured  Gregory Peck as an American ambassador who believes his 5 year-old son is the Antichrist (666 bitches!). The film also starred Lee Remick and Harvey Stephens, rounding out the ill-fated family unit. Will this new iteration surpass the original?

Slated to star in this new addition to the Omen franchise is: Nell Tiger Free (Servant), Tawfeek Barhom (Mary Magdalene), Sonia Braga (Kiss of the Spider Woman), Ralph Ineson (The Northman), and Bill Nighy (Living).

The film is based on characters created by David Seltzer (The Omen), with a story by Ben Jacoby (Bleed) and a screenplay by Tim Smith & Arkasha Stevenson and Keith Thomas (Firestarter). The producers are David S. Goyer (Hellraiser) and Keith Levine (The Night House) and the executive producers are Tim Smith, Whitney Brown (Rosaline), and Gracie Wheelan.

Keep posted to LATIN HORROR for future developments to this exciting title, including trailers, BTS featurettes, and special advance screenings.
