I come bearing news and what kind of news is it? You want something a little scary you say? Well look no further, today at Wondercon The Conjuring 2 trailer debuted and it's as terrifying as ever. The film features Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga returning as demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren, only this time they are investigating “England’s Amityville" which is based on true events and is one of the most documented paranormal cases in history.
While introducing the new trailer, director James Wan expressed how he wanted the new film to tie together with the previous one.
“We knew that in some ways we had to touch on their most famous case, and that is Amityville. Amityville in some ways dictated what the rest… would be,” he said of the two stories’ connections. “We wanted to find a story that mirrored each other.” - Via IGN
The Conjuring 2 Trailer
How scary was that? I know it got me but I'm sitting in a dark living room so maybe I don't count. The trailer shows more content which was teased upon in the previously released teaser trailer. The first Conjuring film which was released back in 2013, did extremely well in box office, making $318 million dollars worldwide against a budget of $20 million dollars. the film is set to hit theaters June 10.
James Wan and David Sandberg's new horror film 'Lights Out' also debuted its trailer at Wondercon, and let me tell you it looks amazing. The film tells the story of a mother who is haunted by some type of figure who lurks only in the dark. What will happen when the lights get turned off and this supernatural entity comes out to play? Find out when the film releases in theaters this July 22.
"I always figured it would be more scary if the parent has the invisible friend," Said Sandberg "It sort of started there, and then it turned into this whole story of dealing with your parents and family."
The film is inspired by Sandberg's short film which is kind of like a little set up film for the movie. I love the fact that James and David both worked on this; hopefully as Sandberg grows as a director, we will see more collaborations like this in the future. Check out the official trailer for Lights Out below and get scared.
