Warner Bros. Pictures released a second trailer for “Annabelle Comes Home,” a new horror-thriller installment coming to theaters this summer. The movie premieres on June 26th and fans of the ongoing franchise can watch the new video below.
Gary Dauberman’s (“The Nun,” “IT” films, “Annabelle” films) moved from screenwriter to director for the new Anabelle movie, and this will be his first feature in that role. Dauberman’s behind-the-scenes team included director of photography Michael Burgess (upcoming “The Curse of La Llorona”), production designer Jennifer Spence (“Annabelle: Creation,” “The Nun”), editor Kirk Morri (“Aquaman”) and costume designer Leah Butler (“Annabelle: Creation”). The music is by Joseph Bishara (“The Conjuring” films).
Annabelle is part of the “Conjuring” franchise, which has made over $1.5B around the world. James Wan created the horror-filled connected 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 on social media 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.
The previous installment in the connected universe was “The Curse of La Llorona,” which opened at number-one back in April with a $26M domestic debut before going on to make over $120M for the studio. “Annabelle Comes Home” will open in theaters on a Wednesday, just before the comedy “Yesterday.”
