Happy Death Day 2U from Blumhouse and Universal Pictures return us to the murderous time-loop with the first film’s star Jessica Rothe reprising her roles as Theresa “Tree” Gelbman. The film is set for release on February 14th –yeap, Valentine’s Day — of 2019. Genius.
About Happy Death Day 2U
Official Description: Two years after the events of the first film, “Tree” Gelbman unexpectedly re-enters the time loop and discovers that Lori Spengler, the original killer, has been murdered. “Tree” must face the new killer to uncover their identity and break free of the time loop once and for all.
Star Jessica Rothe says the sequel “… elevates the movie from being a horror movie 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.” Fans of the original indeed ignored the time loopy potholes that seem to naturally stem from the abstract concept of time travel.
Happy Death Day 2U features a cast that includes …
Jessica Rothe as Theresa “Tree” Gelbman
Israel Broussard as Carter Davis
Suraj Sharma as Samar Ghosh
Sarah Yarkin as Dre Morgan
Ruby Modine as Lori Spengler
Rachel Matthews as Danielle Bouseman
Phi Vu as Ryan Phan
Steve Zissis as Dean Bronson
I’m convinced Blumhouse has actually figured out time-travel but only able to see glimpses. They use it to figure out which movie to make next. Happy Death Day cost an estimated five million and made 122 million in its theatrical run. That’s the Blumhouse special, spending smartly, producing wisely, and making an incredible return on the investment. Will Happy Death Day 2U continue the long-standing trend? I predict yes. But if this changes to a ‘no’ tomorrow, you’ll know I’m stuck in the loop. Help!
