Warner Bros has set aside some prime summer real estate for its creepshow sequel The Conjuring 2. The follow-up to the 2013 hit originally was set for Halloween 2015 but was moved to 2016 three weeks ago in the wake of its spinoff Annabelle slicing off $244 million worldwide since its early-October bow. Now the studio has plunked director James Wan’s Conjuring 2 into the June 10, 2016, slot against the Lionsgate sequel Now You See Me 2 and Sony’s vidgame adaptation Uncharted.
Meanwhile, Focus Features has moved its horror threequel Insidious: Chapter 3 back by a week from May 29 to June 5, where it will clash with Warners’ Entourage and DreamWorks Animation’s B.O.O.: Bureau Of Otherworldly Operations.
