'The Conjuring 2' moves to 2016; new horror film from New Line to hit theaters on October 23, 2015 instead

After the massive success of The Conjuring last year, Warner Bros. and New Line immediately realized that they had a new franchise on their hands. They greenlit a spin-off movie titled Annabelle, which would star the creepy doll that appeared in the first few minutes of The Conjuring. That movie was released earlier this month and has made $166 million worldwide so far on a paltry $6.5 million budget. All of the signs were pointing to The Conjuring 2 being one of the biggest horror movies of all time. However, that is most certainly not going to happen now. 

Deadline is reporting that Warner Bros. and New Line have pushed The Conjuring 2 back to an unspecified 2016 release date. The studios will now release a different horror movie on October 23, 2015, which was when The Conjuring 2 was scheduled to debut. The rumor over at Deadline is that the October 23 date will be occupied by either Crawlspace or Superstition. Crawlspace stars Michael Vartan and is about a widower who moves into his new house with his new wife and daughter. Superstition is about a family who moves into a house where a witch was executed. Neither one sounds all that interesting to me. There is currently no word on when The Conjuring 2 will be released, but I'm betting on a summer 2016 release.
