Planning to be in or near New York City early next month? If so, Annabelle, the star of New Line Cinema’s Annabelle: Creation, will be taking over a popular Times Square landmark for one day only on Friday, August 4th; and we have the details for you right here.
Annabelle: Creation is the follow-up to 2014’s hugely successful Annabelle, which scared up nearly $257 million at the worldwide box office during its run in theaters. The new film is once again being produced by Peter Safran and James Wan, who previously partnered on The Conjuring hit movies.
On Friday, August 4th, a group of 13 Annabelle dolls, created by the award-winning Mezco Toyz, will “take over” Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Times Square, the largest Ripley’s museum attraction in North America. The Annabelles will attempt to hide among the Odditorium’s collection of over 500 unusual artifacts from all over the world as well as within its amazing interactive exhibits.
All Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Times Square visitors on August 4, 2017, will receive a special map of the location. Eagle-eyed visitors who correctly indicate all 13 of Annabelle’s hiding places throughout the Odditorium will have an opportunity to receive tickets to attend a preview screening of Annabelle: Creation (review), which opens nationwide on Friday, August 11th. Select guests will also receive other Annabelle: Creation items from New Line Cinemas and Warner Bros., as well as surprise goodies from Mezco Toyz.
Visitors will also have a special photo opportunity to pose with the demon who possesses Annabelle. Guests who post their images to social media using the tags of #Annabelle, #AnnabelleCreation, #AnnaBelieveItorNot, and #mezcotoyz will have an opportunity to win one of the 13 Annabelle created by Mezco, the only authorized producer of Annabelle prop replica dolls.
Ripley’s Believe It or Not! Times Square will open its doors to brave thrill seekers from 5:00 pm to 12:00 midnight on August 4th.
David F. Sandberg directs Annabelle: Creation from a screenplay by Gary Dauberman, who also wrote Annabelle. The film stars Stephanie Sigman (Spectre), Talitha Bateman (The 5th Wave), Lulu Wilson (Ouija 2, Deliver Us from Evil), Philippa Coulthard (After the Dark), Grace Fulton (Badland), Lou Lou Safran (The Choice), Samara Lee (Foxcatcher, The Last Witch Hunter), and Tayler Buck in her feature film debut, with Anthony LaPaglia (TV’s “Without a Trace”) and Miranda Otto (Showtime’s “Homeland,” The Lord of the Rings Trilogy).
Several years after the tragic death of their little girl, a doll maker and his wife welcome a nun and several girls from a shuttered orphanage into their home. They soon become the target of the doll maker’s possessed creation, Annabelle.
