“Annabelle: Creation” Poster, Trailer Tease

Warner Bros. Pictures has released both a new poster and a trailer tease for the upcoming horror sequel “Annabelle: Creation” which will launch its first trailer online tomorrow ahead of the film’s release on August 11th.

This upcoming sequel to “The Conjuring” spin-off tells the tale of a dollmaker and his wife who, several years after the tragic death of their little girl, welcome a nun and several girls from a shuttered orphanage into their home.

Very soon, however, they become the target of the dollmaker’s possessed creation, Annabelle. Anthony La Paglia, Miranda Otto, Stephanie Sigman, Talitha Bateman and Lulu Wilson star. David F. Sandberg (“Lights Out”) directs from a screenplay by Gary Dauberman.

The launch comes amidst “The Conjuring” franchise currently being in the midst of a lawsuit seeking $900 million in damages, and seeks an injunction to stop both this film’s release and any other “The Conjuring” related films being made.
