It’s only just a doll.
The first trailer we saw back in July played more like a short film as it offered up a look at how Annabelle got her terrifying start in the possessed doll business. Now, New Line’s supernatural spinoff of The Conjuring has an official trailer that digs much deeper into the story surrounding Annabelle.
John R. Leonetti—who acted as cinematographer on The Conjuring—has definitely picked up on some of James Wan’s tricks, which quickly becomes apparent in this new trailer. The gamble to give Annabelle her very own feature film after the massive success of The Conjuring looks to have paid off for the studio.
Annabelle will leave her mark in theaters on October 3rd.
John Form thinks he’s found the perfect gift for his expectant wife, Mia—a beautiful, rare vintage doll in a pure white wedding dress. But Mia’s delight with Annabelle doesn’t last long. On one horrific night, their home is invaded by members of a satanic cult, who violently attack the couple. Spilled blood and terror are not all they leave behind. The cultists have conjured an entity so malevolent that nothing they did will compare to the sinister conduit to the damned that is now… Annabelle.
Annabelle Wallis, Alfre Woodard and Ward Horton all star.
