'Leprechaun: Origins' to get theatrical release
The endearingly nuts Leprechaun franchise has been a straight-to-video enterprise since 1994’s Leprechaun 2 failed to repeat the box-office success of the previous year’s Jennifer Aniston-starring Leprechaun. But two decades on, the little monster from Ireland is once again going to grace the big screen.
Lionsgate and WWE Studios announced today that franchise reboot Leprechaun: Origins, which stars wrestler Dylan “Hornswoggle” Postl as the titular Emerald Isle gremlin, will have a limited theatrical run on Aug. 22. Following that, the film will be available to watch on VOD from Aug. 26 and then released on Blu-ray and DVD Sept. 30. The last day in September will also see the release of a Blu-ray box set, Leprechaun: The Complete Movie Collection, which collects together Leprechaun: Origins with the original six movies.
