Annabelle 2

James Wan‘s The Conjuring expanded its story with its first spinoff Annabelle. The film did not redefine the horror genre the same way that The Conjuring did, but it was still enough of a success to warrant a sequel. Now, Warner Bros. is giving us a first look at Annabelle 2 from director David F. Sandberg. That name may sound familiar to you if you recently watched Lights Out, which was also produced by Wan. That film, though relatively small, got some high praise for being a frightful experience.

Check out the teaser trailer here below for Annabelle 2.

Jason Momoa Unite The Seven Aquaman Justice League banner

Things may not be looking good for the DCEU right now, but the future does look bright thanks to the studio making the necessary adjustments to steering the ship in the right direction. The studio brought in promising filmmakers to direct the respective films, and hiring Geoff Johns and Jon Berg was an excellent decision that will hopefully better guide products like Wonder Woman and Aquaman.

One of those promising filmmakers actually has proven himself to the studio with a couple of hit films. James Wan has given Warner Bros. one hit after another with his great horror flicks, and after proving himself able to direct a film with a larger budget – and under terrible circumstances – it only seemed right that he be rewarded for his efforts with a superhero tentpole.

Aquaman isn’t quite ready to hit theaters just yet, but we will get a better introduction of him in Justice League. Now, Wan is raising expectations of the character pretty high with comments like “he’s kind of the Wolverine in some respect.” More on the story below.

Now it has been revealed which villain Aquaman will oppose in his first big screen solo adventure: Black Manta, one of Arthur Curry’s greatest foes. More below.

James Wan Reassures Fans He’s Still Directing ‘Aquaman’

James Wan Aquaman

Last weekend, news surfaced that the conflict between Zack Snyder and Warner Bros over the creative vision of Justice League: Part One was having a ripple effect with those involved in the formation of the DCEU. Among those feeling its effects was James Wan, who was rumored to be “feeling tremendous amounts of trepidation” about directing Aquaman, starring Jason Momoa. Naturally, there was a wave of fear that the director would leave his post, which wouldn’t look good for the future of the DCEU now that Seth Grahame-Smith won’t be directing The Flash any longer.

However, it appears the rumors of Wan’s possible departure may have been greatly exaggerated as Wan has responded to these rumors on social media.

Check out what he had to say below.

The Conjuring 2 starring Vera Farmiga and Patrick Wilson

There were few recent films that were genuinely able to capture the essence of fright and scares like James Wan‘s The Conjuring. The director proved that jump scares weren’t necessary, and was able to build tension with precision. Now he’s back to follow that up with The Conjuring 2, with Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga reprising their roles as paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren. However, the sequel will take them across the pond all the way to England where they will have to face what is described as England’s Amityville.

Check out the new trailer here below.
