Fans packed the Anaheim Convention Center Arena Saturday afternoon for one of WonderCon’s banner events — a sneak peek of Pacific Rim and The Conjuring, with directors Guillermo del Toro and James Wan.
Del Toro’s highly anticipated sci-fi epic (set for a July 12 release) stars Charlie Hunnman, Idris Elba, Rinko Kikuchi, Charlie Day and Ron Perlman. Del Toro has been teasing convention audiences with action-packed footage since Comic-Con 2012 — as if we needed much convincing to check out what happens when human-controlled robots battle monsters.
But WonderCon wanted to get our hearts pounding before treating us to an adrenaline rush, and they did just that with two exclusive — and terrifying — clips from Wan’s The Conjuring, which dares to ask: what happens if those old house creaks aren’t just old house creaks? Jerks.
