Warner Bros. has a release date for The Conjuring 2

I’ve got some quick release date news to pass along to you guys as Warner Bros. has just slated the sequel to James Wan’s massive hit The Conjuring for an October 23, 2015 release, setting it up just in time to haunt theaters right before Halloween! At first glance it’s kind of surprising to see that they aren’t going to give it a July release where the original film pulled in over $300 million worldwide. But as you guys know, the summer movie season is filled with one blockbuster after another, and 2015’s summer schedule is looking quite crowded with films like Avengers, Terminator, Mad Max, Jurassic World, Ant Man and Ted 2—just to name a few—all hitting theaters that summer.

You won’t see me complaining, though, because the horror genre has been severely lacking in Halloween releases over the last few years so it’s nice to see a film as big as The Conjuring 2 get pegged for an October release. As far as the movie itself, it’s still being kept tightly under wraps. What I do know is that James Wan’s return is very unlikely and that we will at least see both Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga reprise their roles of Ed and Lorraine Warren. What the film will be about is still unknown but it is rumored to center around a case that takes place in the ’70′s and will center on two sisters in Enfield, England, who were allegedly possessed.

It’s still a ways off, but what do you think of The Conjuring 2 getting an October release? Are you glad to see it fall under the Halloween season or would you rather they gave it a summer release like the first film?

  1. Now I am hoping that it is just a continuation of other cases that Ed and Lorraine Warren got involved in, and that they keep it original and fresh and solid, like the last one… dammit, why wasn’t it just left alone?

    1. It’s definitely going to be about another case that the Warrens were a part of, but they haven’t said which one just yet. The only thing that I’m worried about is that James Wan won’t be back to direct. He’s a huge part of why the first film was so successful.

      1. I agree with you there. Wan really pulled The Conjuring together well, and I really liked it. I think they just need to rename the film and it will be all good then, did some more reading here, so holding thumbs it comes together well, the first impressed the hell out of me!
