The Official Leprechaun: Origins Poster Strikes Gold

leprechaun-origins"A horror icon is reborn."

No, it's not one of those A-list horror icons. Nor is it necessarily one of the classic movie monsters. It's Leprechaun, the famous, malevolent little imp who, I think it's safe to say, is one of those B-level (or C-level?) horror icons that rampaged through a slew of films – most of them direct-to-DVD.

Well, this year, he's making his comeback with Leprechaun: Origins, a no-nonsense reboot from director Zach Lipovsky, WWE and Lionsgate and, tonight, an official poster has made its debut. WWE's very own Hornswoggle plays the eponymous menace, taking over for Warwick Davis.

No release date, yet. Nor do we have a plot synopsis to share, but I think you get what this one is about. A trailer is expected to drop very soon. Stay tuned!

    Oh after the “Gold” they gave us on St. Patricks day i can’t wait.

  • Billy Bob Throrton

    No release date?
    Is this going to be direct to video?
    I feel like the movie deserved it because all Leprechaun movies from here on out should take place in or near tha hood,but they dont need to bring it up in the title anymore.
    Jason lives in the woods of Crytsal Lake

    Freddy lives in nightmares
    Dracula in Transylvania
    and Leprechaun in tha Hood
    (Ireland would make more sense but the makers dont seem to care)

    When WWE’s studios is helping to make the film, it is relevant. They want to promote their people.

      no. its trashy.

      • Chris America

        It’s friggin Leprachaun. It’s not Citizen Kane or Gone with the Wind. What do you expect?

        • blacklodgefamilytree

          gone with the wind was trash

  • Phantom DJ

    Well I can’t wait for the Nostalgia Critic and Cinema Snob rip this film.
