'Insidious: Chapter 2' Trailer: Patrick Wilson, Rose Byrne Are Still Haunted (Video)
The sequel from director James Wan hits theaters on Friday, Sept. 13.
Just when you thought the nightmares were gone…
FilmDistrict has revealed the trailer for Insidious: Chapter 2, which finds Rose Byrne and Patrick Wilson reprising their roles from the hit horror film. In the latest installment, the haunted Lambert family seeks answers regarding their dangerous spiritual connections.
Actors Lin Shaye and Ty Simpkins also return for the sequel.
The microbudgeted Insidious, released April 1, 2011, went on to become one of the most profitable films of the year. In The Hollywood Reporter’s review of the film, John DeFore called the flick “guilty-fun,” but noted that it didn’t quite “pull off a genre reboot.”
Insidious: Chapter 2 reteams director James Wan and screenwriter Leigh Whannell. FilmDistrict will release the film in the U.S. on Friday, Sept. 13, while Alliance Films, which is financing, will distribute in Canada, the U.K. (via its Momentum Pictures subsidiary) and Spain (via Aurum). Sony Pictures Worldwide Acquisitions will distribute in all other international territories.
Insidious was made for only $1.5 million and grossed $97 million worldwide, proving a boon for FilmDistrict, which had the rights. The film led many producers to see the viability of low-budget, non-found-footage projects.
