Universal Pictures has released the first Happy Death Day 2U trailer, which you can watch above. If you haven’t seen the first film yet, however, make sure you do before watching this trailer! The sequel opens in theaters on February 14, 2019.
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. Israel Broussard also returns for the sequel.
Suraj Sharma (Life of Pi, Homeland) is joining the sequel as Samar Ghosh, a science enthusiast and geek who enjoys coding in his spare time. Sarah Yarkin (American Horror Story, The Middle) will play Dre Morgan, a science geek and tomboy with a sleepy feline gaze who is Samar’s partner-in-crime.
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).
The first film grossed $122.6 million worldwide in 2017 on a budget of just $4.8 million.
