Death makes a killer comeback on Valentine's Day!
Jessica Rothe returns as Tree Gelbman for the follow-up to Blumhouse's 2017 Groundhog Day-esque slasher hit, Happy Death Day. In Happy Death Day 2U, Tree realizes that what she went through in the first film was just a taste of what's to come!
The first Happy Death Day was an inventively fun flick, mixing classic slasher tropes with a fresh idea and a phenomenal performance by Jessica Rothe. In next year's film, the stakes are higher as Tree's friends are all dying in the same loop.
The trailer has been seen since October, attached to Halloween, but it's finally made its way online and you can check it out below!
Happy Death Day 2U arrives in theaters on February 14th, 2019.
Israel Broussard is returning as Tree's boyfriend, Carter Davis and Ruby Modine reprises her role as Lori Spengler. Suraj Sharma (Life of Pi) and Sarah Yarkin (“American Horror Story”) will also star.
Rothe told Collider a few months ago, “The sequel, the way he described it to me, elevates the movie from being a horror movie – and I wouldn’t even say it’s just a horror movie because it’s a horror, comedy, rom-com drama – into a Back to the Future type of genre film where the sequel joins us right from where we left off, it explains a lot of things in the first one that didn’t get explained, and it elevates everything.”
The first film's director, Christopher Landon will return to direct Happy Death Day 2U. Producer Jason Blum will also return to produce.
