Horror fans are surely foaming at the mouth for the release of the highly anticipated sequel to the 2013 box office smash The Conjuring. This time around, The Conjuring 2 follows Ed and Lorraine Warren to England, where a little girl is seemingly possessed by the evil spirit of an elderly man.
But it isn’t a runaway just yet — World of Warcraft gamers will definitely give the horror-loving crowd a run for their money, with the equally anticipated reboot Warcraft hitting theaters today.
And if by chance poltergeists and orcs just aren’t your jam, then there’s always the magical sequel Now You See Me 2, which brings back The Four Horseman and their spellbinding bag of tricks, or the romantic dramedy about a single New Yorker with a less-than-stable plan, Maggie’s Plan. ~Shelby Morton
