“Annabelle: Creation” Gets Its First Official Trailer

Following today’s WonderCon panel with director David F. Sandberg (Lights Out), we have our first full trailer for the upcoming prequel to 2014’s Annabelle. The fourth film in the newly designated “Conjuring Universe”, Annabelle: Creation focuses on the origin of the now iconic Annabelle doll.

The trailer does a great job setting the mood and laying out the basic plot details without revealing too much from the film itself. While the first Annabelle film was generally disliked, I enjoyed it for what it was and am excited to see what David F. Sandberg can bring to the series. Check out the synopsis, trailer and poster below.

Several years after the tragic death of their little girl, a dollmaker and his wife welcome a nun and several girls from a shuttered orphanage into their home, soon becoming the target of the dollmaker’s possessed creation, Annabelle.

Annabelle:Creation will be released on August 11, 2017.

  1. I really liked Annabelle. I think people were expecting more Conjuring and instead they got a film that would have felt at home being released in the early 2000’s. I don’t think there’s anything wrong with a brief return to that period, which had some entertaining flicks.

    Coming from that vantage point I’ve been excited to see what they were going to do with a sequel which they were touting as being very different from the first. I like the look of this trailer although honestly, I think they gave a little too much away. Especially for a first trailer!

    I’ll probably skip this one in theaters and wait for it’s VOD release.

    • I also enjoyed Annabelle and agree with your assessment of it. I think being attached to the “Conjuring Universe” probably hurt it more than helped it at least with the horror fans.

      My current rule with trailers for movies that I’m interested in is “one and done”! I hate having movies spoiled for me by multiple trailers so now I try not to watch anything past the first. It’s been working well for me so far!
