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.
