After originally being slated for release this July, The Nun’s release date has now been pushed back to 7th September 2018. This is probably a good move considering the big box-office releases that are coming out in July – The First Purge, Skyscraper, Mission Impossible – Fallout and Incredibles 2. September is looking a lot more spacious with no huge releases due to release in that month.
The Nun will follow a priest investigating the suicide of a young nun, immersing him in a terror he could never have imagined. With Corin Hardy at the helm, we’re expecting an atmospheric, chilling edition to The Conjuring franchise. Hopefully the film will follow in the footsteps of the most recent instalment, Annabelle: Creation, by impressing and scaring audiences in equal measure.
The Nun script has been written by The Conjuring/The Conjuring 2 director James Wan and Annabelle/Annabelle: Creation scribe Gary Dauberman. The film will star Taissa Farmiga – the younger sister of The Conjuring’s Vera Farmiga – Demian Bichir, Bonnie Aarons, Charlotte Hope, Jonas Bloquet and Ingrid Bisu.
The Nun will be released on the new date of 7th September 2018.
