‘The Nun’ Gets in the Habit with First Trailer

Just in from The Hollywood Reporter, the first trailer for upcoming horror movie The Nun, a spin-off in The Conjuring universe, has been released by Warner Bros.

When a young nun takes her own life at an abbey in Romania, a priest with a haunted past and a novitiate on the threshold of her final vows are sent by the Vatican to investigate. They uncover the order’s unholy secret and risk not only their lives but their faith and their very souls. As they confront a malevolent force in the form of the same demonic nun that first scared audiences in The Conjuring 2, the abbey becomes a horrific battleground between the living and the damned.

Starring Oscar-nominated actor Demian Bichir (A Better Life) as Father Burke, Taissa Farmiga (American Horror Story) as Sister Irene, Jonas Bloquet (Elle) as local villager Frenchie, Charlotte Hope (Game of Thrones) as the abbey’s Sister Victoria, Ingrid Bisu (Toni Erdmann) as Sister Oana and Bonnie Aarons, reprising her Conjuring 2 role as the titular character.

James Wan, known for his directorial work of the record-setting hits The Conjuring and The Conjuring 2, explores another dark corner of that universe with The Nun. Corin Hardy (The Hallow), who recently departed  reboot, directs the new feature produced by Wan and Peter Safran, who’s produced all the films in The Conjuring franchise.

Ahead of this coming Halloween season, The Nun is set for release on September 7.

Since Mark was four years old he has always loved the horror genre, even when his mother would be a good parent and not let him watch such films. It was when he would sneak into the Horror section at the video store called Tommy K's that he would see all of the VHS covers of classics like Friday the 13th and A Nightmare on Elm Street.

During his time as a journalism major and news staff writer at Southern CT State University, he had the pleasure of meeting and interviewing paranormal investigator Lorraine Warren before a seminar in 2009 at the Lyman Center on campus.
