Promoting The Conjuring 2 at the Warner Bros. CinemaCon presentation in Las Vegas on April 12, Vera Farmiga, who plays Lorraine Warren in the movie, and director James Wan made an appearance.
The actress and director spoke about the plot of the movie, revealing that this time around the Warrens will also be a target for the poltergeist. In the sequel to The Conjuring, the Warrens will travel to Enfield in London to deal with a poltergeist activity in a council house. The International Business Times reported from the event and got comments from Farmiga and Wan. Farmiga revealed that this time around even the Warrens will be eyed by the poltergeist.
"They themselves have come under attack," Farmiga said.
Farmiga went on to talk about the experience of making the film revealing that while it was a memorable experience it was also a bit scary.
"It was compelling and even a little frightening for us," she said.
Wan also weighed in on how the real life Warrens were such an inspiration.
"The Warrens are such incredible characters," he said, adding that he was fortunate to explore one of their more "intriguing" cases.
New footage from the film was also unveiled at the event.
The latest trailer for The Conjuring 2 brings the terrifying case to life.
In the clip Ed (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine Warren are seen sitting with a pastor, listening to a recording.
"My name is Bill Wilkins and I am 72 years old," an old man's voice is heard through the recorder.
"What do you make of that voice?" the priest asks them after playing this bit of the recording.
"Sounds confused," Ed says.
"The voice on this tape is coming from an eleven year old girl," the priest makes the shocking revelation.
As the clip rolls, Ed's voice is heard in the background: "They're calling it England's Amityville, there is a family that desperately needs our help."
The trailer seeks to emphasize that this case will be more twisted and unforgettable than the one in the original film.
There is also a sense of finality in Lorraine's voice as she says, "After everything we've seen, there isn't much that rattles either of us anymore. But this one, this one still haunts me."
The movie also stars Franka Potente, Frances O'Connor, Madison Wolfe and Lauren Esposito.
The Conjuring 2 will release on June 10.
