Hot Trailer: ‘Annabelle’, Spinoff Of ‘The Conjuring’

By | Thursday July 17, 2014 @ 4:25pm PDT

Hot Trailer: ‘Annabelle’, Spinoff Of ‘The Conjuring’Here’s the trailer for Annabellea spinoff rather than straight sequel to the New Line horror pic The Conjuring. The pic is directed by John R. Leonetti, written by Gary Dauberman and produced by James Wan and Peter Safran. It stars Annabelle Wallis, Alfre Woodard and Eric Ladin. The main lesson to be drawn from the trailer seems to be that it’s not healthy for adults to play with dolls, but perhaps we’re being too literal minded in our assessment. Annabelle opens October 3, just in time to ruin the Christmas gift lists of doll collectors everywhere. What do you think of the trailer?

Hot Trailer: ‘Laggies’ with Keira Knightley, Sam RockwellThe trailer for ‘Laggies‘ has dropped, sloooowwwwly, of course.

Chloë Grace Moretz plays the high schooler she befriends, then hides out with while dodging said marriage proposal, and Sam Rockwell plays Moretz’s initially bemused and then increasingly intrigued father. The film debuts Oct. 24, unless it lags a bit more, of course. Here it is. Let us know what you think.
