We saw a brief teaser for Sinister 2 a few days ago, and this fifteen second video was setting up the official trailer debut, which we have found out happens tomorrow!
While we wait (impatiently) for the full trailer, we can firstly share the films poster, and you will find the creepy looking artwork below.
Sinister 2, the follow-up to the 2012 pic that grossed more than $87M worldwide on of a $3M budget, will arrive August 21, 2015. Citadel‘s Ciaran Foy will helm the next chapter, which Sinister director Scott Derrickson is writing with C. Robert Cargill.
The cast includes Shannyn Sossamon, James Ransone, Robert and Dartanian Sloan. Ransone will reprise his role as Deputy So-And-So (he was never named in the first film), so no doubt his return will give the sequel some depth in terms of the plot device as he will have already had some experience with Mr Boogie.
The new franchise follows Blumhouse’s success with the Paranormal Activity and Insidious series of ultra-low-budget genre hits. eOne financed the sequel, with Derrickson and Jason Blum producing.
Here’s the synopsis for Sinister 2:
In the aftermath of the shocking events in Sinister, a protective mother (Shannyn Sossamon of Wayward Pines) and her 9-year-old twin sons (real-life twins Robert and Dartanian Sloan) find themselves in a rural house marked for death. James Ransone, who portrayed the concerned sheriff’s deputy in Sinister, will be reprising his character in Sinister 2.
