With a fresh new title – Annabelle: Creation – announced at CinemaCon this week, the sequel to the 2014 horror (itself spun off from The Conjuring) has now put a full trailer and a poster online.

The film's plot is focused on the doll-maker who created the grinning fiend in the first place. Twenty years after their daughter died tragically, a dollmaker (Anthony LaPaglia) and his scarred wife (Miranda Otto) welcome nun sister Charlotte (Stephanie Sigman) and several girls from an orphanage that recently had to close. Unfortunately for the new arrivals, the possessed doll is none too pleased with the added house guests.

This trailer makes it clear how Annabelle got her start, so the title certainly makes sense. With a script by Gary Dauberman, directorial chores this time were handled by Lights Out man David F. Sandberg, who has pushed for plenty of practical effects and good, solid scares.

Annabelle: Creation will creep into UK cinemas on 11 August.
