Happy Death Day 2U brings back the groundhog-day style murder death loop in this trailer for the sequel to 2017’s hit film Happy Death Day.
2017’s Happy Death Day from director Christopher Landon under the Blumhouse banner was an entertaining, enjoyable and successful film for the powerhouse horror-movie production studio.
The film was popular enough to warrant a sequel shortly after its release.
It followed the story of Tree (Jessica Rothe), a teen who was forced to live out her death over and over again (groundhog day style), until being able to find her masked killer and defeat them.
The sequel, Happy Death Day 2U, sees Jessica Rothe reprise her role as Tree, and get stuck in the same death loop once again.
This time, however, the killer is not only after her but all of her friends as well.
Tree must relive her death over and over again one more time in order to save herself, and her friends from permanent death.
The trailer sets the tone for the film and outlines the plot quite clearly while giving us a look at the returning cast and some of the murderous antics that take place in the film.
Its tone is similar to the first film and will likely follow the same formula.
It should please fans of the original and be just as entertaining.
Israel Broussard. Ruby Modine and Phi Vu also reprise their roles in the sequel, and Christopher Landon is back to direct.
Happy Death Day 2U hits cinemas on 14 February 2019 (Valentine’s Day).
