The Creepy Doll Is Back In First 'Annabelle 2' Trailer

James Wan may be about to head up Warner Bros.' big screen Aquaman movie with Jason Momoa, but he's already launched another blockbuster franchise on a much smaller scale. His hit horror film The Conjuring launched a spinoff, Annabelle, featuring the creepy doll locked away in their basement. This year's The Conjuring 2 has also led to a follow-up centering on its demonic antagonist in a nun habit. But before that haunts theaters a sequel to Annabelle will take its turn, and the first teaser for it is here.

Directed by David F. Sandberg, who scored another horror success in the Wan-produced Lights Out (still in theaters by the way), the film tells another story of the haunted doll as it terrorizes a new family. Miranda Otto, Stephanie Sigman, Talitha Bateman, Anthony LaPaglia, and Lulu Wilson star in what looks like a pretty standard genre flick based on this footage. But we'll see if Sandberg can conjure up something unexpected because he's actually a very talented filmmaker.

Annabelle 2 arrives May 19th 2017.
