MaXXXine Announced as The Next Installment in the Ti West “X” Series

Maxine (Mia Goth) is back, and Hollywood has finally embraced her.

Ti West’s slasher trilogy with X and Pearl will conclude with MaXXXine, once again starring Goth as the titular character set a decade after the events of an adult film shoot gone wrong on a Southern farm. It’s now 1985 and Maxine has found her way to Los Angeles, where her name is seen in the hills in lieu of the Hollywood sign. But with fame comes consequences.

As seen in the trailer above, the film follows Maxine (Goth), after the events of X, as the sole survivor who continues her journey towards fame setting out to make it as an actress in 1980’s Los Angeles.

Pearl made its world premiere at the 2022 Venice Film Festival followed by its North American debut at TIFF. The film will release nationwide Friday, September 16. Set a half-century before the horrific events of “X,” the film stars Goth as the future psycho-biddy protagonist Pearl, here a starry-eyed farm girl with a short fuse and a deadly ambition.

Mia Goth will be executive producing MaXXXine with A24, Jacob Jaffke, and writer-director West producing along with Kevin Turen and Harrison Kreiss.

MaXXXine will focus on how home video has affected people in the 1980s.

“I’m very proud of these,” Ti West stated. “They’re super different and very out-of-nowhere. You won’t need to see one to see the other, but they do complement each other.”

He added, “I’m trying to build a world out of all this, like people do these days. You can’t make a slasher movie without a bunch of sequels.”
