Witness the darkest chapter of The Conjuring Universe. #TheNunMovie, in theaters September 7.
Filmmaker James Wan, director of the report-placing horror hits “The Conjuring” and “The Conjuring 2,” explores yet another dim corner of that universe with “The Nun.” Directed by Corin Hardy (“The Hallow”), the new fright-fest is created by Wan and by Peter Safran, who has produced all the movies in “The Conjuring” franchise.
When a younger nun at a cloistered abbey in Romania normally takes her own daily life, a priest with a haunted previous and a novitiate on the threshold of her remaining vows are despatched by the Vatican to examine. Together they uncover the order’s unholy secret. Jeopardizing not only their lives but their religion and their really souls, they confront a malevolent power in the kind of the identical demonic nun that to start with terrorized audiences in “The Conjuring 2,” as the abbey results in being a horrific battleground in between the living and the damned.

The solid also features Charlotte Hope (TV’s “Game of Thrones”) as the abbey’s Sister Victoria, Ingrid Bisu (“Toni Erdmann”) as Sister Oana, and Bonnie Aarons, reprising her “Conjuring 2” role as the title character.
Hardy directs “The Nun” from a screenplay by Gary Dauberman (“It”), tale by James Wan & Gary Dauberman. Dauberman, Todd Williams and Michael Crystal clear are the executive producers.
Signing up for Hardy powering the scenes are director of images Maxime Alexandre (“The Voices,” “Annabelle: Creation”), creation designer Jennifer Spence (“Annabelle: Development,” “Lights Out,” the “Insidious” films), editors Michel Aller (“Lights Out,” “Paranormal Activity: Ghost Dimension”) and Ken Blackwell ( “Ouija” “Friday the 13th”), and costume designer Sharon Gilham (TV’s “Black Mirror”).
