The full-length “Annabelle Comes Home” trailer was released today, previewing the new installment to the horror franchise that is coming to theaters this summer. The studio revealed the title and release date earlier this month, but now fans can watch an official trailer for the film below.
“Annabelle Comes Home” is scheduled to hit theaters on June 28th; this is the third installment of New Line Cinema’s successful franchise. We should point out that Annabelle is just a small part of the larger “Conjuring” universe, which has been a goldmine for the studio and a hit with horror fans all over the world.
Gary Dauberman’s (“The Nun,” “IT” films, “Annabelle” films) is jumping from screenwriter to director for the project, and this will be his first feature in that role.
The franchise itself has made over $1.5B around the world. James Wan created the “Conjuring” universe for Warner Bros. Pictures and New Line Cinema, and serves as a producer on “Annabelle Comes Home.” Dauberman wrote the screenplay from a story he co-wrote with Wan.
The studio teased the film’s story adding, “Determined to keep Annabelle from wreaking more havoc, demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren bring the possessed doll to the locked artifacts room in their home, placing her “safely” behind sacred glass and enlisting a priest’s holy blessing.”
The story picks up when Annabelle awakens the evil spirits in the room, who all set their sights on Warrens’ ten-year-old daughter, Judy, and her friends.
The new Annabelle film stars McKenna Grace (TV’s “The Haunting of Hill House,” “Gifted,” “Captain Marvel”) as Judy; Madison Iseman (“Jumanji: Welcome to the Jungle,” “Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween”) as her babysitter, Mary Ellen; and Katie Sarife (TV’s “Youth and Consequences”, “Supernatural”) as troubled friend Daniela.
Reprising their roles in the franchise are Patrick Wilson (“The Conjuring,” “Insidious” films, “Aquaman”) and Vera Farmiga (“The Conjuring” films, upcoming “Godzilla: King of the Monsters,” TV’s “Bates Motel”) as Ed and Lorraine Warren.
Horror-thriller fans have “The Curse of La Llorona” to look forward to on April 19, 2019, another film from Warner Bros. Pictures. “Annabelle Comes Home” will open in theaters against the comedy “Yesterday,” one week after the “Child’s Play” reboot and “Toy Story 4,” which could split the box office.
