Seems like the wait is finally over as the third movie from the Conjuring movie series is finally going to hit the theatres this year. It is hard to believe that the first movie of the franchise was dropped eight years ago, which had set a new benchmark for movies in supernatural horror genre.
The upcoming movie has been directed by Michael Chaves, with Peter Safran and James Wan serving as the producers, under the production house of The Safran Company, New Line Cinema and Atomic Monster Productions, and distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures.
The Conjuring 3 Release Date
The third installment of The Conjuring franchise has been dated to premiere on June 4, 2021, in the theatres of the United States and simultaneously on the HBO Max streaming platform. However, the movie will be available to be watched on HBO Max only for a month from its date of release, after which, it will be removed from the platform. Marked as the eighth overall installment in the Conjuring Universe, the movie was initially set to release last year on September 11, but was bound to reschedule owing to the massive outbreak of the COVID-19 pandemic.
The movie was announced to be under development in June, 2017, while the official title, ‘The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It,’ was revealed in December 2019. The movie had begun with the filming from June 3, 2019, in Atlanta, Georgia, and after 80 days, it was an official wrap up.
The first movie, ‘The Conjuring’ had released on July 19, 2013 in Canada and the United States, which was a massive hit, grossing more than $319 million globally, against a small budget of $20 million. The success of the film encouraged the film makers to deliver more sequels, (The Conjuring 2) as well as several related films, including ‘Anabelle’ (2014), it’s prequel, ‘Annabelle: Creation’ (2017) and their sequel, ‘Annabelle Comes Home’ (2019). The official sequel of ‘The Conjuring’ titled as, ‘The Conjuring 2: The Enfield Case,’ had hit the silver screens in the US on June 10, 2016, and like it’s predecessor, it was a box office hit.
The Conjuring 3 Cast Details

The Conjuring 3 Plotline
All the earlier movies of the series have been inspired from real life stories and this time, the movie has been inspired by the story of a murder trial that happened in the year 1981, in Connecticut. The movie will feature one of the most sensational cases from the careers of Lorraine Warren and Ed Warren, where the murder suspect, Arne Cheyenne Johnson, who is a young boy, states to have been under demonic possession while committing the crime of brutally murdering his landlord, Alan Bono. The title itself gives away the theme of the movie. The Warrens are involved here as well as they were associated in the exorcism of David Glatzel, involving the same demon.
This time, we are going to witness a feeling different from that of the other movies of the franchise, since there is no concept of a haunted house, at least superficially.
The movie makers have not released any teaser, trailer, or posters for the time being. Like any other movie, ‘The Conjuring 3’ have kept these stuff to be released as the film nears its premiere. We can expect Warner Bros. to drop the trailer of the movie a few weeks before the official release. Meanwhile, you can watch or re-watch the first two movies of the series, which are available to be streamed on Netflix and Prime Video.
