In Annabelle: Creation, both Talitha Bateman and Lulu Wilson are pushed to their limits as they battle against the evil influences of the prequel's titular doll who terrorizes them relentlessly (especially Bateman, whose character Janice is put through the paces and then some).

During the movie's recent press day, the actresses discussed how much it meant to them to be part of a cast that was primarily composed of female characters, their experiences working with director David F. Sandberg, pushing themselves with some of Creation’s ambitious stunts, and much more.

Annabelle: Creation stars Anthony LaPaglia, Miranda Otto, Talitha Bateman, Lulu Wilson, and Stephanie Sigman, and will arrive in theaters later tonight for advanced screenings, courtesy of New Line Cinema and Warner Bros. Pictures, and in case you missed it, catch up on our previous coverage of the film here.
