Evil is very present in David F. Sandberg’s Annabelle: Creation. Ahead of the films premiere last night in Los Angeles, Warner Bros. revealed a second trailer, including a new poster, to tease the next chapter in The Conjuring universe.
Annabelle: Creation serves as a prequel, which focuses on a dollmaker and his wife.
Several years after the tragic death of their little girl, a doll maker and his wife welcome a nun and several girls from a shuttered orphanage into their home. They soon become the target of the doll maker’s possessed creation, Annabelle.
The film stars Stephanie Sigman (Spectre), Talitha Bateman (The 5th Wave), Lulu Wilson (Ouija 2, Deliver Us from Evil), Philippa Coulthard (After the Dark), Grace Fulton (Badland), Lou Lou Safran (The Choice), Samara Lee (Foxcatcher, The Last Witch Hunter), and Tayler Buck in her feature film debut, with Anthony LaPaglia (TV’s Without a Trace) and Miranda Otto (Showtime’s Homeland, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy).
Annabelle: Creation is slated for release August 11, 2017.
