Watch: First Trailer for Vera Farmiga’s ‘Conjuring 2’ Promises Plenty of Scares

New Line has released the first trailer for “The Conjuring 2,” offering up a chilling conversation between a young girl and Vera Farmiga’s paranormal investigator character.

“It said it wants to hurt you,” the girl says. “Right now.”

The trailer portrays a bleak countryside home and sets the film, with James Wan returning to direct, in Enfield, England in 1977. Other than offering creepy sound effects, a rotating crucifix on a wall and a shadowy figure about to pounce, the trailer appears to be largely spoiler-free.

The “Conjuring” sequel had originally been set for a pre-Halloween release on Oct. 23, 2015, but New Line decided last year to move it back to a prime summer release date of June 10 — similar to its predecessor, which was moved into the summer after New Line received strong response at preview screenings.

New Line scored a massive surprise hit in 2013 with Wan directing the supernatural thriller, which amassed about $320 million in worldwide box office on a $20 million budget.

That film was set in Rhode Island in 1971 and based on the work of real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren (portrayed by Patrick Wilson and Farmiga, respectively).

Principal photography for “The Conjuring 2” began in September in Los Angeles and moved to London in November.
