The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It Has Been Delayed To 2021

It's unclear whether the Devil was also behind the delay.


In news that no longer comes as a surprise in 2020, the third installment in the Conjuring film series has been delayed from this September to June 4, 2021, The A.V. Club reported.

The news follows shortly after Warner Bros removed Tenet's release date, in a move no doubt designed to make sure Christopher Nolan's epic is ideally placed in the box office once cinemas reopen. While The Conjuring 3 is also a Warner Bros film, the studio has clearly decided that releasing one big film in an increasingly uncertain year is more than enough.

Now Playing: The Conjuring Universe Timeline Explained

With The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It yet to receive any kind of major marketing, it's no wonder the studio has made the decision to push it to next year. So far, all that's been released for the upcoming horror film is a short synopsis and a title card.

From the film's website: "'The Conjuring: The Devil Made Me Do It' reveals a chilling story of terror, murder and unknown evil that shocked even experienced real-life paranormal investigators Ed and Lorraine Warren. One of the most sensational cases from their files, it starts with a fight for the soul of a young boy, then takes them beyond anything they’d ever seen before, to mark the first time in U.S. history that a murder suspect would claim demonic possession as a defense."

Like the other Conjuring films, The Conjuring 3 is based on a true story from the real-life Warrens' case files. Known as the "Devil Made Me Do It" case (hence the film's name), the trial of Arne Cheyenne Johnson became infamous when the defendant used a claim of demonic possession as a defense for the murder of his landlord Alan Bono.
