Warner Bros. Pictures has just recently released the official trailer for their new horror flick, The Curse of La Llorona. The film is based on a ‘weeping woman’, as one character calls her in the trailer, La Llorona, who haunts small children. And the trailer does succeed in giving you shivers on some moments. And for those who are thinking otherwise, this movie is not related to The Conjuring universe. Just because it’s distributed by Warner Bros. and New Line Cinema and produced by James Wan.
But still, nothing official has been revealed regarding its association with James Wan’s The Conjuring series. It may or may not be connected. But its timeline and story setting are very similar to that of other Conjuring films, like Annabelle. The Curse of La Llorona is based in the year 1973, in Log Angeles.
Who knows if later on, it’s revealed that this one is, in fact, another entry into the blockbuster franchise established by Wan, since 2013. There have been 5 movies in total so far in the horror series, with the last one being The Nun, which was released last month, in September, and became the biggest grossing film in Conjuring universe ever-despite not being very good at reviews. It was all purely due to the tag of being a part of that franchise.
Well, The Curse of La Llorona movie is directed by Michael Chaves and stars Linda Cardellini, Patricia Velasquez, Tony Amendola, Marisol Ramirez, Sean Patrick, and Raymond Cruz in crucial roles.
The film will be releasing next year, on April 19 2019.
