It looks like we're gonna have a creepy doll box office war on our hands this June, as we've learned today that Annabelle Comes Home, the next film in the Conjuring Universe, will now release on Wednesday, June 26th, rather than on June 28th. That’s just days after the June 21st release of Orion's Child’s Play remake.
Which doll do you put your money on for box office supremacy?
Gary Dauberman, the screenwriter of the Annabelle films, IT and The Nun, makes his directorial debut on the film, which is produced by Wan and Peter Safran (Aquaman), who has produced all the films in the Conjuring franchise.
"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. But an unholy night of horror awaits as Annabelle awakens the evil spirits in the room, who all set their sights on a new target—the Warrens’ ten-year-old daughter, Judy, and her friends."
The film stars McKenna Grace (“The Haunting of Hill House") as Judy; Madison Iseman (Goosebumps 2: Haunted Halloween) as her babysitter, Mary Ellen; and Katie Sarife (“Supernatural”) as troubled friend Daniela; with Patrick Wilson (The Conjuring and Insidious films) and Vera Farmiga (The Conjuring films, Godzilla: King of the Monsters) reprising 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.
