Rhys Frake-Waterfield’s Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey Expands Its US Theatrical Run this February with Fathom Events

One of the possible sleeper hits of 2023 is Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey which made many people smile in 2022 at the thought of creating a horror film based on the child story Winnie the Pooh, but which then gathered pace as it moved through production and which started to make people think that perhaps this wasn’t as crazy an idea as initially thought.(the chance of a horror movie based on the A. A. Milne novel became possible when the novel “Winnie-the-Pooh” (1926) entered the public domain in the U.S giving anyone free reign to make their own take on the famous bear) Also worth noting that The film’s characters could not the characters in any film or show could not , resemble the Disney versions of the character,as they are still protected by copyright. But with free reign to create new Pooh stories, writer/director Rhys Frake-Waterfield took up his pen (or placed fingers on keyboard) and started to craft what would become Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey (rumour has it that Rhys Frake-Waterfield is also planning a twist on the classic Peter Pan story)

Well the news keeps coming out and to add to Fathom Events which would be hosting theatrical screenings for a single day only  (February 15th, 2023) this schedule has changed and more dates have been added which now gives Winnie the Pooh: Blood and Honey a longer theatrical run with screenings available in more than 1,500 theaters, the movie will now screen from Wednesday, February the 15th through Monday, February 23rd 2023.

Check out the trailer for the anticipated horror film below which of course, is a far far walk from the Disney adaptation of the classic bear story

While the copyright for Winnie the Pooh lapsed in the US in 2022 which has made this film possible. The copyright to the character(s) are still in place in Europe until 2027 Which means its unlikely that here in the UK ill be able to see the film for some time (although if I dont see any updates on that, I will update this article)

The days of adventures and merriment have come to an end, as Christopher Robin (played by Nikolai Leon), now a young man, has left Winnie-The-Pooh (played by Craig David Dowsett )  and Piglet ( Chris Cordell ) to fend for themselves. As time passes, feeling angry and abandoned, the two become feral. After getting a taste for blood, Winnie-The-Pooh and Piglet set off to find a new source of food. It’s not long before their bloody rampage begins. The film also features Natasha Tosini , Amber Doig-Thorne , May Kelly, Danielle Scott, Natasha Rose Mills, Gillian Broderick, and Mark Haldor
