At the TIFF screening of Pearl, West surprised audiences with a post-credits scene, set to VHS-style footage, announcing his new film, MaXXXine. According to the official synopsis, the third film “follows Maxine, 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.”

The trilogy began in March 2022 with X, which follows a group of young adults attempting to film a pornographic movie on an elderly couple’s Texas farm. When Howard and Pearl learn about the group’s intentions for the film, they embark on a vicious killing spree, murdering every member besides Maxine.

Shortly after the X’s premiere, West announced a second film titled Pearl, a prequel set in 1918 that chronicles how a young Pearl became a ruthless killer. West secretly shot the film following the conclusion of X. Pearl is set to open in theaters everywhere on September 16.
