Warner Bros./New Line have revealed today that The Conjuring 2 is going to hit theaters October 23, 2015. No plot details have been revealed, so until you read something official, take it all as rumor.
What we know for a fact? Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga will return as Ed and Lorraine Warren. The sequel will likely see them taking on a new case, of course.
Worth noting here: The Conjuring 2 will not be a summer release like the first film was.
The Conjuring opened in mid-July of 2013 and grossed over $300 million worldwide. I think it's safe to speculate The Conjuring 2 isn't arriving in the summer of 2015 because it's simply going to be a crowded season (Avengers: Age of Ultron, Mad Max: Fury Road, Jurassic World, Fantastic Four, Terminator, Ted 2, Ant-Man…).
This is the first horror film to enter to the Halloween 2015 season.
No word yet as to who will direct, but we'll keep you posted!
