Patrick Wilson, Vera Farmiga Join 'Annabelle 3'; Here's Everything We Know

We were first introduced to a diabolical doll named Annabelle in The Conjuring. Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga starred as experienced paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren, who were called upon to help a Rhode Island family in 1971.

The horror thriller was a breakout success, leading to the spin-off feature Annabelle. That film was also quite popular, inspiring a prequel, Annabelle: Creation that explored the doll's origins, as well as a promised third installment in the…

Bad Times at the El Royale is perhaps one of the most soulful movies of the fall season — a super stylistic crime drama fueled by soul music about strangers who show up at a rundown motel all searching for something or someone. As their paths begin to cross and their stories intertwine, we're left with a refreshingly unique film that produces shades of Quentin Tarantino, the Coen brothers and even classic noirs like 1974's Chinatown.

The former being more important to the studios, there was no doubt the comic book adaptation, focused on a team of villains gathered to save the world, would get a sequel. Improving upon the original would be a bonus, and doing so would be an easy goal.
