Warner Bros sure do love their ‘universes’. First their barrage of DC Comics adaptations. Now after director James Wan laid the foundations with two enjoyable instalments, it’s becoming clear that they believe ‘The Conjuring’ series has serious legs.

Whilst the 2014 spin-off Annabelle was hardly well-received and wasted the talents of Annabelle Wallis (currently in The Mummy), its sequel Annabelle: Creation is looking a far more assured offering judging its second trailer.

Directed by Lights Out’s David F.Sandberg, the targets this time around for the deadly doll include Holding The Man’s Anthony LaPaglia’sĀ and Lord Of The Rings actress Miranda Otto, as they welcome many orphaned and increasingly vulnerable girls into their home.

The film is released on 11th August 2017.
