The Blumhouse team keeps killing it with low budget horror movie successes, so it’s no surprise that Happy Death Day is getting a sequel in the form of Happy Death Day 2U. The first trailer for the film has been released, and you can check it out above.
I was a fan of the original, so I’m cool with it getting a sequel. It looks like Tree Gelbman will be going through the same repetitive day as last time, albeit with much more knowledge about her time loop of death. Most the cast looks to be returning from the original, so the balance of horror and comedy should remain in tact.
The film is set to release this upcoming Valentine’s Day.
About Happy Death Day 2U
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).
