‘Annabelle: Creation’ is offering a terrifying glimpse into the development of its menacing title doll in its second official trailer and new poster. The prequel’s director, David F. Sandberg, unveiled the latest clip on his Twitter account early this morning, following the horror movie’s gala screening last night at the Los Angeles Film Festival.
New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. Pictures are set to distribute ‘Annabelle: Creation‘ in theaters on August 11. The thriller stars Stephanie Sigman, Talitha Bateman, Lulu Wilson, Philippa Coulthard, Grace Fulton, Lou Lou Safran, Samara Lee, Tayler Buck in her feature film debut, Anthony LaPaglia and Miranda Otto.
The origins story to the hit 2014 horror movie, ‘Annabelle,’ was penned by Gary Dauberman, who also wrote the original drama. Like its predecessor and the two ‘The Conjuring‘ films that inspired the ‘Annabelle’ spin-offs, Peter Safran and James Wan served as producers.
Sandberg was also joined behind-the-scenes on the fourth installment in ‘The Conjuring’ universe by some of his collaborators from his feature film directorial debut, last summer’s hit horror movie, ‘Lights Out.’ The reunited team includes production designer Jennifer Spence, editor Michel Aller and composer Benjamin Wallfisch. The group was joined by director of photography Maxime Alexandre (‘The Other Side of the Door’) and costume designer Leah Butler (‘Paranormal Activity 3 and 4’).
‘Annabelle: Creation‘ is set several years after the tragic death of a young girl. Her father, who works as a dollmaker, and his wife decide to welcome a nun and several girls from a shuttered orphanage into their home. But the group soon becomes the target of the dollmaker’s possessed creation, Annabelle.
