Warner Bros. Pictures released a new 360 VR experience for “The Conjuring 2,” which will be hitting theaters later this summer. The film’s director, James Wan, plays host in the video, which comes from WB and New Line Cinema.
Stars of the original “The Conjuring,” Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson, reunited with Wan in the new installment. The sequel will begin a new chapter from the Warren case files this summer, the film is scheduled to release on June 10, 2016. The new film will be a follow-up to the record-breaking success of “The Conjuring,” which was released in 2013.
The supernatural thriller brings to the screen another real case from the files of renowned demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren.
