Warner Bros. has announced the full title and release date for James Wan’s The Conjuring 2. The movie will be called The Conjuring 2: The Endfield Poltergeist, and it’s set to be released in theaters on June 10th, 2016.
The sequel will continue to follow the supernatural adventures of paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, played by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga, and this sequel could be even more terrifying than the first one. The subtitle of the film offers us some insight into what the story of this film will be.
The Endfield Poltergeist is based on another real life investigation that the Warrens worked on. After a little digging around I found a detailed account of what this story entailed on a website called The Committee of Skeptical Inquiry.

Move over, Hollywood, the much chillier Vancouver, Canada, has become a hot shooting spot, thanks to its tax breaks and unique ability to stand in for everything from sleepy Maine towns to superhero metropolises (even if its outdoor locales prove tricky in keeping secrets from fans). I suited up for a whopping eight set visits in four days to find out what makes Vancouver and the actors who call it their (temporary) home so special.

Though one of their case subjects, the possessed doll Annabelle, haunted theaters last month, Ed and Lorraine Warren are currently in between pictures, but their return is highty anticipated, especially after it was revealed that James Wan will helm New Line Cinema’s follow-up to 2013’s The Conjuring. Originally slated for an October 23rd release, the sequel has taken a new spot on the calendar.
The Hollywood Reporter reveals that Warner Bros. will release The Conjuring 2 on June 10th, 2016. It’s also believed that the sequel could have the title, The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist, referring to the supernatural activity that supposedly occurred in real life at a council house in the north London suburb of Enfield during 1977 – 1979. The house was rented by Peggy Hodgson, a single mother raising four children at the time: Margaret (12), Janet (11), Johnny (10), and Billy (7).

When New Line Cinema indicated that it was developing a sequel to the 2013 horror film, The Conjuring, there was little surprise among moviegoers. On release, the original film became one of the highest grossing flicks of its genre, raking in a massive $318 million against a $20 million budget. Little progress had been visible, however, until the studio’s recent announcement of a new release date, and a full title – The Conjuring 2: The Endfield Poltergeist.
In the original film, the story follows paranormal investigators and authors Ed and Lorraine Warren (Farmiga and Wilson) – real people with real experience in the field of unexplained phenomena – as they assist the Perron family (Ron Livingston and Lili Taylor). The troubled couple and their five daughters find themselves bombarded by disturbing events at their new home in Rhode Island in 1971, and call on the expertise of the Warrens to help uncover the cause.

Not long after its delay, New Line has announced a new release date of June 10th, 2016 for The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Poltergeist. An interesting note is that both Now You See Me 2 and Sony’s film adaptation of the Uncharted video game franchise are also slated for release on that date, so expect either one of the three to get bumped, or simply a loaded weekend of movies. Seeing as how the original took home an impressive $318 million worldwide, the sequel shouldn’t be taken as light competition.
Unlike the poorly received spin-off prequel Annabelle, The Conjuring 2 will have most of its original production team returning, from director James Wan, to writers Chad and Carey Hayes, to paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren portrayed by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga. In other words, there should be a modest level of excitement amongst horror aficionados.

The Conjuring 2 will land in June 2016 - and it's currently up against Now You See Me 2 and Uncharted...
Regular listeners of the Kermode and Mayo radio show on BBC Radio Five Live will already know that the former regularly refers to films such as The Conjuring and Insidious as 'cattle prod horror'. That they're based around build ups to a big jump, rather than trying to get under your skin in the way that movies such as The Babadook manage to.
There's little denying the success of such films though, and The Conjuring in particular took a summer release slot in 2013, and turned it into $318m at the worldwide box office (off a $20m production budget). Little wonder that The Conjuring 2 is happening (and we've already had one spin-off, Annabelle).
The original plan had been for The Conjuring 2 to arrive in 2015. However, Warner Bros revealed that the movie was being »

Unlike the recent spinoff film, Annabelle (which explored the back story of The Conjuring's terrifying doll), it is believed that The Conjuring 2 will continue the based-on-truth adventures of paranormal investigators Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga's Ed and Lorraine Warren.

Bates Motel's third season is luring in a new face: Joshua Leonard. He may be new to the hit A&E series, but he's no stranger to the genre. He landed on our map with The Blair Witch Project and, this year, we saw him co-starring in The Town That Dreaded Sundown.
Per TVLine, Leonard "will play the recurring role of James Finnigan, a community college psych professor whose pull towards Norma (Vera Farmiga) slowly chips away at his carefully constructed house of cards."

Bates Motel is still accepting reservations for its upcoming third season.
Joshua Leonard of Blair Witch Project fame is the latest guest to check into the A&E drama, TVLine has learned exclusively.
The actor — whose TV credits include arcs on Hung, CSI: Miami and The Mob Doctor — will play the recurring role of James Finnigan, a community college psych professor whose pull towards Norma (Vera Farmiga) slowly chips away at his carefully constructed house of cards.
The gig marks a reunion for Leonard and Farmiga; the two played husband and wife in the 2011 indie Higher Ground (which Farmiga directed »
In America, Halloween is a fun day, an excuse for a party and a close third behind Thanksgiving and Christmas when it comes to annual celebrations. In Britain, it's more a case of shutting your curtains and hoping that the kids down the road don't egg your windows.
But that negative approach to Halloween needs to end now. What we lack in pumpkins and parties, we can make up for with an evening of hiding under the duvet with scary TV shows.
While there might not be much actual horror programming on October 31 (although a new series of Citizen Khan on BBC One is frightening us in a different way), a quick delve into the world of Netflix (other streaming services are available, yadda, yadda) means that there are frights and thrills on tap for anyone who wants to get into the spooky spirit of things.

It seems that James Wan couldn't stay away from horror for too long. The director will return to direct The Conjuring 2. The film will again be based on the true adventures of paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, played by Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga.
Originally, Warner Bros. gave The Conjuring sequel an October 2015 release date. But yesterday it was revealed that the studio was pushing back the film to 2016. Now we know the reason for the push: it's to give Wan time to finish and promote Fast & Furious 7.
When Wan signed up to direct Fast & Furious 7, it seemed like his horror days were behind him. But thankfully, they are not.

Deadline reports that James Wan will direct The Conjuring 2, the follow-up to his 2013 scary smash-hit, for Warner Bros. subsidiary New Line Cinema. Shooting will commence next summer. We now know that New Line’s postponement of The Conjuring 2‘s release from October 23rd, 2015 to sometime in 2016 was to give Wan space in his schedule to publicize his recently directed Fast & Furious 7, due out from Universal on April 3rd, 2015.
The director has also signed a first-look producing agreement with New Line. The deal will allow Wan to create and back science fiction, horror, and comedy films under his own Atomic Monster production label.

Though one of their case subjects, the possessed doll Annabelle, has settled into theaters, Ed and Lorraine Warren are currently in between pictures. Many fright fans have eagerly awaited the big screen return of the husband/wife paranormal investigating duo since they appeared in 2013’s The Conjuring, but now Warner Bros. has pushed back the release of the sequel to James Wan’s scary smash-hit.
According to Box Office Mojo, Warner Bros. has moved the release of The Conjuring 2 from its original October 23rd, 2015 slot to sometime in 2016.

The Conjuring 2 was originally set to open in time for Halloween next year, arriving on October 23, 2015. Now that Jem and the Holograms is also occupying that slot, Warner Bros. has delayed their sequel to director James Wan's 2013 hit The Conjuring, moving it to an unspecified release date in 2016.
The Conjuring 2 will reportedly continue the adventures of real-life paranormal investigators Ed Warren (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine Warren (Vera Farmiga) as they take on a new case. The spinoff Annabelle came out earlier this month, and while it wasn't a hit with critics it has already pulled in $37 million against a $6 million budget. There are no plans for a sequel at this moment.
Right now, The Conjuring 2 does not have a set director. »
