REVIEW OF ANNABELLE 2 (2017)
Annabelle 2: is a Horror, Mystery, Thriller upcoming movie directed by David F. Sandberg & written by Gary Dauberman. The film stars Stephanie Sigman (Spectre), Talitha Bateman (The 5th Wave), Lulu Wilson (upcoming Ouija 2, Deliver Us from Evil), Philippa Coulthard (After the Dark), Grace Fulton (Badland), Lou Lou Safran (The Choice), Samara Lee (Foxcatcher, The Last Witch Hunter), Tayler Buck in her feature film debut, with Anthony LaPaglia (TV’s Without a Trace) and Miranda Otto (Showtime’s Homeland, The Lord of the Rings Trilogy).
In “Annabelle 2,” several years after the tragic death of their little girl, a dollmaker and his wife welcome a nun and several girls from a shuttered orphanage into their home, soon becoming the target of the dollmaker’s possessed creation, Annabelle.
A fun little bit of trivia I discovered after watching the first flick and thoroughly enjoying it was that the actual Annabelle doll that was investigated by Ed and Lorraine Warren is a Raggedy Ann doll.
The original Annabelle was one of the most profitable movies of 2014, pulling in $84.2 million domestically and $172.6 million internationally for $256.8 million worldwide, from just a $6.5 million budget. We’ll have to wait and see if the sequel will be as profitable as its predecessor. Annabelle 2 is a New Line Cinema presentation, an Atomic Monster/Safran Company production. The film will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company. Take a look as Annabelle gets ready to strike back.
