New Poster For The Nun

New Poster For The Nun

Not a horror film buff?

With YouTube allowing companies to purchase ads which play before numerous videos on the service begin airing, organizations have gotten creative with how to capture a viewer's attention in as little as six seconds.

One person tweeted: "WARNING!" Then again, some Twitter commenters are hypothesizing that Warner Bros. distributed the ad with the intention of getting it pulled, in order to get The Nun some publicity in a saturated horror market.

You might not be able to watch the trailer for the horror movie The Nun on YouTube anymore, but the new global poster is here to creep you out and tide you over in until the film hits theaters.

One recent ad for the movie was so scary it was actually banned by YouTube! The company noted that the released ad violated their ban on shocking content in promotions.

"We value diversity and respect for others, and we strive to avoid offending or shocking users with ads, websites, or apps that are inappropriate for our ad network", YouTube said.

An advertisement for The Nun has been removed from Youtube following a wave of complaints.

The opening of the actual trailer shows things go from bad to worse - starting with a priest being buried alive.

Story-wise, we understand The Nun takes place long before New Line's core Conjuring series - 1952, to be precise, when a Romanian monastery was graced (i.e. terrified) by Valak's presence. Set in early-'50s Romania, the film is about the origins of the inhuman spirit, also known as Valak, that tormented ghost-hunters Ed and Lorraine Warren (Patrick Wilson and Vera Farmiga) in the 1977-set The Conjuring 2. You can still experience it up above, though fair warning: don't watch it with headphones, otherwise you're likely to jump out of your chair.
