This past weekend at WonderCon, director-producer James Wan (The Conjuring, Insidious) shared with the audience inside the Microsoft Theater the world premiere of the trailer for Lights Out.
Horror aficionados know that Lights Out was originally a hella scary short film, directed by David F. Sandberg, that went viral a couple of years ago. Now, the feature-length adaptation, due July 22 and also directed by Sandberg, promises to flesh out the story, this time starring Maria Bello and Theresa Palmer. And according to a confident Wan, who's producing, the new film will introduce audiences to a new horror villain named Diana who will haunt us for some time. (In other words, if this thing soars, expect Lights Out 2 by 2017 or 2018.)
