Following it learned that YouTube banned an ad for the movie, now check out a new spot for The Nun with "Abbey," which promises to scare the dickens out of you!
Filmmaker James Wan, director of the record-setting horror hits â€śThe Conjuringâ€ť and â€śThe Conjuring 2,â€ť explores another dark corner of that universe with â€śThe Nun.â€ť Directed by Corin Hardy (â€śThe Hallowâ€ť), the new fright-fest is produced by Wan and by Peter Safran, who has produced all the films in â€śThe Conjuringâ€ť franchise.
When a young nun at a cloistered abbey in Romania takes her own life, a priest with a haunted past and a novitiate on the threshold of her final vows are sent by the Vatican to investigate. Together they uncover the orderâ€™s unholy secret. Risking not only their lives but their faith and their very souls, they confront a malevolent force in the form of the same demonic nun that first terrorized audiences in â€śThe Conjuring 2,â€ť as the abbey becomes a horrific battleground between the living and the damned.
The Nunâ€ť stars Oscar nominated Demian Bichir (â€śA Better Lifeâ€ť) as Father Burke, Taissa Farmiga (TVâ€™s â€śAmerican Horror Storyâ€ť) as Sister Irene, and Jonas Bloquet (â€śElleâ€ť) as local villager Frenchie.
The cast also includes Charlotte Hope (TVâ€™s â€śGame of Thronesâ€ť) as the abbeyâ€™s Sister Victoria, Ingrid Bisu (â€śToni Erdmannâ€ť) as Sister Oana, and Bonnie Aarons, reprising her â€śConjuring 2â€ť role as the title character.
Hardy directs â€śThe Nunâ€ť from a screenplay by Gary Dauberman (â€śItâ€ť), story by James Wan & Gary Dauberman. Dauberman, Todd Williams and Michael Clear are the executive producers.
Joining Hardy behind the scenes are director of photography Maxime Alexandre (â€śThe Voices,â€ť â€śAnnabelle: Creationâ€ť), production designer Jennifer Spence (â€śAnnabelle: Creation,â€ť â€śLights Out,â€ť the â€śInsidiousâ€ť films), editors Michel Aller (â€śLights Out,â€ť â€śParanormal Activity: Ghost Dimensionâ€ť) and Ken Blackwell ( â€śOuijaâ€ť â€śFriday the 13thâ€ť), and costume designer Sharon Gilham (TVâ€™s â€śBlack Mirrorâ€ť). The music is by Abel Korzeniowski (â€śNocturnal Animalsâ€ť).
New Line Cinema presents an Atomic Monster / Safran Company production, â€śThe Nun.â€ť Opening in theaters on September 7, 2018, the film will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.
