‘The Nun II’ Trailer: The Conjuring Universe’s Demonic Nun Returns This September

Believe it or not, James Wan’s Conjuring Universe is about to be nine movies deep and a decade old, having launched with 2013’s The Conjuring. Surprisingly, it wasn’t one of the “core” movies that is the franchise’s highest earner. That would be 2018’s The Nun with $365M worldwide, and now five years later the sequel, The Nun II, is here.

Franchise veteran Michael Chaves, who directed The Curse of La Llorona and 2021’s The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It, is behind the camera for The Nun II. Taissa Farmiga is back as Sister Irene, who four years after her first encounter with the demonic nun Valak, must face it once again. And yes, it still sorta looks li

Farmiga is joined by Storm Reid, Anna Popplewell, Katelyn Rose Downey, and Bonnie Aarons as The Nun.

Here’s the brief synopsis: 1956 – France. A priest is murdered. An evil is spreading. The sequel to the worldwide smash hit follows Sister Irene as she once again comes face-to-face with Valak, the demon nun.

The Nun II hits theaters on September 8th.
