The Nun 2 is the second part in the horrific Conjuring universe, which has been entertaining horror fans since 2013. It focuses on the lives and careers of demonologists Ed and Lorraine Warren.

Since then, there have been other spin-offs, such as stories concerning the possessed doll Annabelle, which is based on a real-life doll owned by the Warrens. The genuine doll is more creepier than the one in the movies!

In addition, there have been Nun spin-offs based on the Warrens’ encounter with a phantom nun while touring a haunted cathedral in the 1970s. The nun had been buried alive in the church walls as punishment for having an affair with a monk, so she was out for vengeance.

For horror aficionados, the Warrens’ lives are understandably compelling, which is why the Conjuring universe has been so successful. This year will see the release of a second Nun film. Here’s everything you need to know about the horror sequel.

The Nun 2 Release Date

On September 8 Friday, exactly five years after the premiere of the first movie in the series, The Nun 2 will finally be available to watch in theaters all around the world.

The horror sequel’s filming took place between October 2022 and January 2023, and despite subsequent changes to the release date made by Warner Bros., it has remained exactly where it is as an early Halloween treat for fans.

How Long Does The Nun 2 Last?

It has been established that The Nun 2 is 109 minutes and 35 seconds long, which is equivalent to slightly about one hour and 50 minutes, depending on your personal preference.

That is 13 minutes longer than the original movie, which ran for 96 minutes and 23 seconds, but it is not anywhere close to the length of The Conjuring 2, which runs for 133 minutes and 44 seconds and is still the longest Conjuring film.

Is There a Trailer?

On July 6, 2023, Warner Bros. published the trailer for The Nun 2, which featured an exclusive first look at Valak’s appearance in the sequel.

Who Is Directing The Nun 2?

Corin Hardy, who directed the first installment of The Nun, is being replaced as director of the sequel by Michael Chaves. Chaves is well-known for his work on both “The Curse of La Llorona” and “The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It,” so he is not a novice when it comes to the spooky world that he has helped create.

What’s The Nun 2 About?

Along with the first trailer, we got the official plot synopsis for The Nun 2 which reads as follows: “1956 – France. A priest is murdered. An evil is spreading. The sequel to the worldwide smash hit follows Sister Irene as she once again comes face-to-face with Valak, the demon nun.”

We don’t know how many Conjuring links to expect beyond Valak, but Chaves has teased that there are surprises for fans.

“Anyone who saw the first Conjuring knows that Maurice is possessed and then exorcised by the Warrens, and we know that that happens in the late ’60s in the Conjuring timeline,” he explained. “This is set in the ’50s so we’re still a ways off from that. The events of what happens in between this start to fill out that story a little bit more.

“There’s other big ideas and big swings in there, and it’s filled with a bunch of cool Easter eggs. Without giving anything away it continues to fill out the picture and the bigger canvas.”
