MANILA, Philippines — She’s coming back earlier than you think!
The year’s most eagerly anticipated horror thriller, New Line Cinema’s “Annabelle: Creation,” will hold whole-day sneak previews in most cinemas nationwide on Monday and Tuesday, August 14 and 15.
The sneak previews, which will cost regular admission prices, were announced by Warner Bros. Philippines last Thursday.
The sneaks are being held ahead of the film’s grand opening on August 23 in response to clamor from horror fans.
“This is our special treat to them,” Francis Soliven, general manager of Warner Bros. Philippines, said.
“The fans are elevating their excitement and anticipation to this film in such creative ways, and we are pleased to return the favor,” he added.
Warner Bros. Philippines previously organized a media and fan screening on August 7, which coincided with the celebration of International Doll Day. Fans showed up with their own dolls to mark the occasion.
From New Line Cinema comes “Annabelle: Creation,” with David F. Sandberg (“Lights Out”) helming the follow up to 2014’s hugely successful “Annabelle”. The new film is once again produced by Peter Safran and James Wan, who previously partnered on “The Conjuring” movies.
In “Annabelle: Creation,” set several years after the tragic death of their little girl, a doll maker and his wife welcome a nun and six girls from a shuttered orphanage into their home. They soon become the target of the doll maker’s possessed creation, Annabelle.
The film stars Stephanie Sigman (Spectre), Talitha Bateman (upcoming Geostorm), Lulu Wilson (Ouija: Origin of Evil, Deliver Us from Evil), Philippa Coulthard, Grace Fulton, Lou Lou Safran, Samara Lee (The Last Witch Hunter), and Tayler Buck in her feature film debut, with Anthony LaPaglia (TV’s Without a Trace) and Miranda Otto (The Lord of the Rings Trilogy).
