The horror-thriller “Annabelle Comes Home” releases on Digital on September 17th, followed by the Blu-ray and DVD release on October 8th. “Annabelle Comes Home” is the third installment of New Line Cinema’s popular “Annabelle” franchise, which features the doll from the “Conjuring” universe. The digital release is just a few weeks away, and the retail version will be ready before your Halloween screening party.
Gary Dauberman, screenwriter of the “Annabelle” films, “IT” and “The Nun,” makes his directorial debut in “Annabelle Comes Home,” and the film is produced by Peter Safran and “Conjuring” universe creator James Wan. The movie stars Mckenna Grace as Judy, Madison Iseman as her babysitter Mary Ellen, and Katie Sarife as troubled friend Daniela. Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga reprise their roles as Ed and Lorraine Warren.
Dauberman directed the film from a screenplay he wrote, from a story by Dauberman and Wan. Richard Brener, Dave Neustadter, Victoria Palmeri, Michael Clear, Michelle Morrissey, and Judson Scott served as executive producers.
“Annabelle Comes Home” opened in second place behind “Toy Story 4” with a $20.2M opening last June. The movie opened against the Universal Pictures comedy “Yesterday.” The third Annabelle installment went on to make over $72.5M domestically and over $221M worldwide.
Dauberman’s behind-the-scenes team included director of photography Michael Burgess (“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).
In the movie, demonologists Ed (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine Warren (Vera Farmiga) are determined to keep Annabelle from wreaking more havoc on innocent victims, and they lock the possessed doll in their home’s special artifact room, placing her behind sacred glass. Things go wrong when the doll escapes and awakens the room’s evil spirits. The doll conjures up an unholy night of horror for the Warrens’ daughter and her friends as they desperately battle to bring Annabelle’s reign of terror to an end.
