The Nun 2 trailer: the Conjuring Universe continues to expand this September

A trailer for the Conjuring Universe entry The Nun 2 has arrived online, two months ahead of the film’s theatrical release

A sequel to the Conjuring Universe entry The Nun (which you can get HERE) finally went into production last year, four years after the film earned $365 million at the global box office on a budget of $22 million. The Nun 2 is now heading toward a September 8th theatrical release – and now that we’re just two months away from that date, a trailer for the film has been unveiled! You can check it out in the embed above.

The Nun 2 is directed by Michael Chaves (The Curse of La LloronaThe Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It) from a screenplay by Akela Cooper (Malignant) and the writing duo of Ian Goldberg and Richard Naing (The Autopsy of Jane Doe). The film has the following synopsis: 1956 – France. A priest is murdered. An evil is spreading. The sequel to the worldwide smash hit THE NUN follows SISTER IRENE as she once again comes face to face with the demonic force VALAK – THE DEMON NUN.

Bonnie Aarons is back in the role of the demon nun Valak and is joined in the cast by fellow returning The Nun stars Taissa Farmiga and Jonas Bloquet. New additions include Storm Reid (Euphoria), who plays a nun-in-training who joins Sister Irene on the mission to stop Valak; child actress Katelyn Rose Downey (Clean Sweep), and Anna Popplewell, who is best known for playing the role of Susan Pevensie in the Chronicles of Narnia franchise. Popplewell plays Kate, “a school teacher at St. Mary’s School in France and a widowed, loving mother to 10-year-old Sophie”. We assume Downey is playing Sophie.

James Wan and Peter Safran are producing The Nun 2 through their Atomic Monster and The Safran Company banners. Richard Brener, Dave Neustadter, Victoria Palmeri, Gary Dauberman, Michael Clear, Judson Scott, and Michael Polaire serve as executive producers.

The Nun was one of my least favorite entries in the Conjuring Universe, but I didn’t like Annabelle and ended up enjoying Annabelle: Creation. So I’ll give The Nun 2 a chance and see if it can redeem the Valak series for me.
