Following 2014's Annabelle and its sequel Annabelle: Creation, Warner Bros. now looks to another side character from the adventures of Ed (Patrick Wilson) and Lorraine Warren (Vera Farmiga), as represented in James Wan's 2016 sequel The Conjuring 2.

Taissa Farmiga (younger sister of Vera) stars as Sister Irene, a young novitiate who is sent by the Vatican, alongside a nun (Charlotte Hope) and a Catholic priest (Demián Bichir), to investigate the mysterious suicide of a nun at a Romanian monastery. 

Soon a connection emerges to the demon Valak (Bonnie Aarons), who later came to haunt Lorraine Warren, herself a devout Catholic.

The Nun hits UK cinemas on 7 September.
