Despite being delayed in February, The Nun is slated to hit US Theaters on September 7th; it’s the latest feature-film spinoff from The Conjuring Universe, which has already given Annabelle her own franchise. We don’t have a trailer yet, but we’ve got the first official image from (and of) The Nun—and it’s just as chilling as we hoped it would be! Give it a look-see below.
As it stands, The Nun has the post-Labor day frame all to its own. Corin Hardy directs Nun from It scribe Gary Dauberman’s screenplay. Dauberman is also EP; and he co-wrote the story with James Wan. Taissa Farmiga stars as Sister Irene, and Demian Bichir stars as Father Burke. The latter is sent to Rome to investigate the death of a Nun.
While no one is comping The Nun to It‘s enormous record, Warner Bros. and New Line know there’s a horror audience that’s ready and available to come out for frights in the period following the sluggish Labor Day weekend.
