As promised, here’s the first full trailer for Lights Out director David F. Sandberg’s Annabelle: Creation , which take viewers back to the franchise’s roots. The film takes place several years after the tragic death of their little girl, where a dollmaker and his wife welcome a nun and several girls from a shuttered orphanage into their home, soon becoming the target of the dollmaker’s possessed creation, Annabelle.
Yesterday’s teaser showed the dollmaker creating a series of Annabelle dolls, with the first edition presumably being the haunted one. The full trailer is much, much more. Here we see the little girl who is actually possessing the Annabelle doll with one added reveal; she asks for permission to enter the doll! From what I can gather, the dollmaker and his wife want to have their daughter back so badly that they allow a demon to trick them into their domain. It’s jam-packed with scares and a wonderfully spooky atmosphere, all sewn together with the signature sound design and score of The Conjuring films.
What do you guys think?!
The full cast includes Stephanie Sigman (Spectre), Talitha Bateman (The 5th Wave), Lulu Wilson (upcoming Ouija 2, Deliver Us from Evil), Philippa Anne Coulthard (After the Dark), Grace Fulton (Badland), Lou Lou Safran (The Choice), Samara Lee (Fox Catcher, The Last Witch Hunter), Tayler Buck in her feature film debut, with Anthony LaPaglia (TV’s Without a Trace) and Miranda Otto (Showtime’s Homeland, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy).
Sandberg directs from a screenplay by Gary Dauberman, who also wrote Annabelle.
Annabelle comes to life on August 11, 2017.
UH, WHAT THE HELL IS THIS?
