The main trailer for The Conjuring 2 dropped this weekend at WonderCon, revealing more details of the story which explores “the most documented case in paranormal history.”
In 2013, Warner Brothers’ The Conjuring broke box-office records with its terrifying story based on a case file from real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren.
The Conjuring 2 opens another one of the Warrens case files, that of the “Enfield Poltergeist” case from the late 1970’s. This time around, the Warrens travel to the north London suburb of Enfield to investigate claims of poltergeist activity surrounding a single mother and her 4 children.
From Warner Brothers:
“The Conjuring 2 brings to the screen another real case from the files of renowned demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren. Reprising their roles, Oscar nominee Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson star as Lorraine and Ed Warren, who, in one of their most terrifying paranormal investigations, travel to north London to help a single mother raising four children alone in a house plagued by malicious spirits.”
Have a look at the official main trailer for The Conjuring 2:
Up until this weekend, fans only had a teaser trailer in which to get a glimpse of what to expect when the The Conjuring 2 opens on June 10th. But at the Warner Brothers / New Line WonderCon panel this weekend, director James Wan finally revealed the official main trailer for the film, and referred to the Enfield case as “England’s Amityville.” Wan referenced parallels between the Enfield case and the Amityville case, but stressed that he didn’t want to reveal too much. In a Twitter Q&A after the panel, Wan said “We wanted to mirror the story of Amityville. They are two of the most documented paranormal cases in the world.”
The Warrens also famously investigated the Amityville case, but its unclear how that case factors into The Conjuring 2 or whether there will ever be a follow up “Conjuring” film that focuses on the Amityville case alone.
Also revealed during the WonderCon panel was the first trailer for another Warner Brothers / New Line summer horror release, Lights Out, which is produced by Wan.
