Exclusive Interview with Annabelle the Doll

Published

on

Sure, we’ve had a battery of interviews in support of Annabelle: Creation (review). They feature the cast, the filmmakers, etc. But everyone seems to ignore the 400-pound gorilla in the room… Annabelle herself.

Recently we had a chance to sit down with her to discuss her newfound fame and fortune.

DC: Annabelle, thanks for taking the time to sit down for a quick chat. We know you’re super busy, and we appreciate the time. We’ve spoken a lot with the cast and the crew of your latest film, but surprisingly enough, no one really spoke about you. In fact, some would say (quietly of course) that you’re a bit of a diva. How do you respond to that?

annabelle

DC: Oh, come now. No need for tears. Let’s go back to the beginning… how long have you been haunting/acting for?

Annabelle young

DC: Wow! So young! So full of hope and hatred! Look at those cheeks! Adorable! So, tell us. You have a bit of an infamous past rife with murder. Why did you do it?

DC: That song was about you? We can’t blame you for breaking up with Durst, what with his strange cookie fetish. Seriously, that dude could probably drive anyone to murder. Are you currently seeing anyone?

Annabelle Marlon

DC: That’s RIGHT! You guys still together? How is Marlon?

Annabelle

DC: Yeah, I’m sure he’s a bit of a handful. What’s that? Really? Well, I guess it is true what they say! *blush* So recently, like most celebrities, you’ve had your phone hacked and some really risqué images of you made it to sites like PornHub and YouPorn. Are you in any way ashamed?

Annabelle Hacked

DC: Marlon was really freaked out.

Annabelle

DC: Good for you! I never really got everyone’s hang-up with the human body. Speaking of hang, di…

The Conjuring

DC: Ha! Who knew you had such a sense of humor!?! Since the phone hacking you’ve become an unlikely candidate for leader in the war against body shaming. Lots of women from all walks of life have been emulating you. How does that make you feel?

Annabelle

Annabelle

Annabelle

DC: Wow, those are incredible. For those out there wondering how you maintain your good looks, how often do you need to be restained/repainted?

Annabelle

DC: So just once every movie. Very cool! That should leave you with plenty of time to do what you want! Speaking of time, ours is up! Thank you again for everything! See you on the big screen August 11, and stay spooky!

She’s back! From New Line Cinema comes “Annabelle: Creation,” with David F. Sandberg (“Lights Out”) helming 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.

In “Annabelle: Creation,” 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.

Sandberg directs 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).

Serving as executive producers on “Annabelle: Creation” are Richard Brener, Walter Hamada, Dave Neustadter and Hans Ritter.

Collaborating with Sandberg behind-the-scenes from his “Lights Out” team are production designer Jennifer Spence, editor Michel Aller and composer Benjamin Wallfisch, joined by director of photography Maxime Alexandre (“The Other Side of the Door”) and costume designer Leah Butler (“Paranormal Activity 3 & 4”).

New Line Cinema presents, an Atomic Monster/Safran Company production, “Annabelle: Creation.” Slated for release August 11, 2017, the film will be distributed by Warner Bros. Pictures, a Warner Bros. Entertainment Company.

That is One Gigantic Steampunk Squid…

Published

on

Perhaps one of the greatest sci-fi adventures novels ever written, Jules Verne’s 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea was a landmark book, one that was decades ahead of its time. The story follows the crew of the Nautilus, a submarine commanded by Captain Nemo, as they venture in search of a giant sea monster. It was the basis for several film adaptations and the character of Captain Nemo played a pivotal role in the graphic novel series The League of Extraordinary Gentlemen.

So why am I bringing this up, you ask? Because Tor Books is releasing Nemo Rising, a sequel, this Christmas! Written by C. Courtney Joyner, the story once again follows Nemo, although this book sees him a prisoner that must be pardoned by President Ulysses S. Grant in order to face an onslaught of more sea monsters.

Normally, I wouldn’t bother you all with this, but I happen to have a soft spot in my heart for 20,000 Leagues Under the Sea and the cover art for the book is fucking epic! I’ve always been a fan of cephalopods, and I’ve found the steampunk aesthetic to be pretty fascinating. Combine them both along with giant monsters, and you damn well better believe that I’m 100% into it! Plus, it’s wrapped itself around the Nautilus, which is already a giant vessel, so now I’m wondering just how large these mechanical monstrosities are…

Nemo Rising will be released on hardcover from Tor Books on December 26, 2017.

Synopsis:
Sea monsters are sinking ships up and down the Atlantic Coast. Enraged that his Navy is helpless against this onslaught and facing a possible World War as a result, President Ulysses S. Grant is forced to ask for assistance from the notorious Captain Nemo, in Federal prison for war crimes and scheduled for execution.

Grant returns Nemo’s submarine, the infamous Victorian Steampunk marvel Nautilus, and promises a full Presidential pardon if Nemo hunts down and destroys the source of the attacks. Accompanied by the beautiful niece of Grant’s chief advisor, Nemo sets off under the sea in search of answers. Unfortunately, the enemy may be closer than they realize…
