In the wake of The Conjuring spinoff Annabelle screaming up close to $167M worldwide, Warner Bros. is moving New Line’s sequel The Conjuring 2, out of its Oct. 23, 2015 spot into 2016.
Does not seem to be much controversy with this change, perhaps just a reevaluation of marketing goals and an attempt to extend the life of the CONJURING/ANNABELLE films..
But I have a prediction: I say this unnamed horror flick will continue to tell a tale of the Warrens..
New Line hit a nerve.. I think they will continue to strike while the iron is hot.
And the horror that works right now is ghostly strangeness, not bloody gore.
