How to Watch The Hocus Pocus Film on DVD, Blu-ray, and Streaming: The Official Guide
AUSTRALIAN financial markets have reacted positively to the latest film from the Tom Hocus-Pocus cult hit.
The film, which has already had the benefit of favourable reviews from critics and audiences, has been viewed by more than 13 million people in Australia since its release last month.
It has now surpassed $2 billion in gross ticket sales.
Hocus has also won an Oscar for best foreign language film, while it is being screened in China.
The movie will be available in Australia on DVD and Blu-rays for $11.99, or $19.99 for those with the Blu-Ray option.
“We’re all super excited for the film,” said Hocus co-creator Mark Bresson.
“It’s a celebration of our work, the films we’ve made together, and the people we’ve met along the way.”
The Hodge-Paces’ film, directed by Bressons son Jason and co-written by Paul Hodge and Kevin Kwan, is a romantic comedy in which an aspiring actor and his mother meet each other at a movie theater.
In the film, Jason and his father have a long-distance relationship, but when they finally get married, he is denied the right to have an abortion, leaving his mother as his only surviving parent.
The two are married in the film’s opening sequence.
The Hufflepaces have not disclosed the final budget for the movie, which is expected to cost $50 million to make, and it has been reported that the film will cost about $20 million to produce.
The first movie, Zaprud, has also been reviewed positively by critics.
It won the Oscar for Best Foreign Language Film and was nominated for best original screenplay.
“The Hodge Pocus films are a celebration for the Hodge brothers’ talent and their commitment to telling stories of love and life,” said producer, director and screenwriter Jason Bressman.
“Tom Hodge is a visionary filmmaker, and he and Paul Hove are both immensely talented.”
Hocus’s next film, Infinite, has yet to be announced, but it is expected in 2018.
Hodge also co-wrote and produced the feature film Hocus and Zap, a romantic biopic of Hocus.
The sequel, Infinite, will be a biopic, and Hocus will direct and co‑write.
The films have earned a combined $5.4 billion worldwide, according to Box Office Mojo.
