The release date for “The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It” has been pushed back.
The third Conjuring film was originally slated for release on September 11th 2020, but Warner Bros. apparently feels like that time wont be ideal for pulling in any audiences.
The studio has now decided on a release date of June 4th 2021.
Warner Bros. chairman Toby Emmerich released a statement saying “Our goals throughout this process have been to ensure the highest odds of success for our films while also being ready to support our theater partners with new content as soon as they could safely reopen. We’re grateful for the support we’ve received from exhibitors and remain steadfast in our commitment to the theatrical experience around the world. Unfortunately, the pandemic continues to proliferate, causing us to reevaluate our release dates.”
“The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It” sees Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga reprise their roles as paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren.
The movie’s synopsis is as follows:
“A chilling story of terror, murder and unknown evil that shocked even experienced real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren. One of the most sensational cases from their files, it starts with a fight for the soul of a young boy, then takes them beyond anything they’d ever seen before, to mark the first time in U.S. history that a murder suspect would claim demonic possession as a defense.”
