The cinematic universe of The Conjuring will continue to expand this September with the release of The Nun, and ahead of the film's first trailer reveal tomorrow, a new poster has been unveiled for those brave enough to stare down the movie's titular character.

One of several spinoff movies in James Wan's The Conjuring cinematic universe (other entries include the Annabelle movies and the in-development Crooked Man film), The Nun will explore the backstory of the demonic nun encountered by paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren in The Conjuring 2.

Slated for a September 7th theatrical release, the new movie is directed by Corin Hardy (The Hallow) from a screenplay co-written by James Wan and Gary Dauberman, with Wan also producing the project with Peter Safran. You can check out the new poster (which was exclusively revealed by Fandango), as well as a new image unveiled by Empire, and stay tuned to Daily Dead for the new trailer tomorrow!

"When a young nun at a cloistered abbey in Romania takes her own life, a priest with a haunted past and a novitiate on the threshold of her final vows are sent by the Vatican to investigate. Together they uncover the order’s unholy secret. Risking not only their lives but their faith and their very souls, they confront a malevolent force in the form of the same demonic nun that first terrorized audiences in “The Conjuring 2,” as the abbey becomes a horrific battleground between the living and the damned."

The Nun” stars Oscar nominated Demian Bichir (“A Better Life”) as Father Burke, Taissa Farmiga (TV’s “American Horror Story”) as Sister Irene, Jonas Bloquet (“Elle”) as local villager Frenchie, Charlotte Hope (TV’s “Game of Thrones”) as the abbey’s Sister Victoria, Ingrid Bisu (“Toni Erdmann”) as Sister Oana, and Bonnie Aarons, reprising her “Conjuring 2” role as the title character.
