‘Annabelle’ Release Date Official Now, Confirms Warner Bros.

Annabelle Doll

A few months back, Warner Bros. and New Line set an October 3rd release date for an unknown horror film. We speculated it was Annabelle. Turns out we were spot-on with that guess. Both entities confirmed the release date today. And, get this, it's getting a theatrical release.

Directed by John Leonetti, the film was produced by James Wan and is a spin-off of last year's hit The Conjuring. Leonetti served as the director of photography on The Conjuring.

The film will star Annabelle Wallis and Ward Horton.

The Annabelle doll was seen at the start of The Conjuring as a possessed item terrorizing a group of 20-somethings.  Her reign of terror ended when Ed and Lorraine Warren obtained the doll and added them to their collection of supernatural items.

The Conjuring 2 remains in development and is on track for an October 23, 2015 release.

    God, I love that doll. So creepy. Can’t wait to see this one. Leonetti directed the absolutely atrocious Mortal Kombat: Annihilation but under the guidance of the great James Wan I have faith this flick will deliver. Of course, only time will tell.

      Yes as far as creepy dolls go it delivers!

        Absolutely. Probably the creepiest doll I’ve ever seen. Hopefully they use it to maximum effect in the movie.
