Today brings about a brand new trailer for the upcoming horror sequel to the surprisingly fun Happy Death Day. The “Groundhog Day”-esque slasher flick returns and picks up soon af the events of the first film with an all new twist that puts her friends in danger as well:
This is a pretty solid trailer and I’m digging the horror/comedy vibe (much like the first film) that’s also mixed with action and sci-fi elements. There’s a lot going on and seeing Jessica Rothe’s character taking more action this time around is neat. It’s strange, though, that this trailer seems to show even less than the movie’s teaser trailer last month. Still, it’s a fun reminder that Happy Death Day 2U is just around the corner.
Jessica Rothe leads the returning cast of HAPPY DEATH DAY 2U, the follow-up to Blumhouse’s (Split, Get Out, The Purge series) surprise 2017 smash hit of riveting, repeating twists and comic turns. This time, our hero Tree Gelbman (Rothe) discovers that dying over and over was surprisingly easier than the dangers that lie ahead. Jason Blum once again produces and Christopher Landon returns to write and direct this next chapter, while Happy Death Day executive producers Angela Mancuso and John Baldecchi are newly joined by EP Samson Mucke (Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse).
Happy Death Day 2U hits theaters on Feburary 14, 2019.
