Universal Debuts First Trailer For Horror Sequel ‘Happy Birthday 2U’

This Valentine’s Day, death makes a killer comeback. Jessica Rothe finds herself reliving her deadly Groundhog Day-like nightmare all over again.

The 31-year-old actress 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).

Happy Death Day
earned $122 million worldwide based on a $4.8 million budget. It’s no surprise a sequel was rushed into production. The first installment was quite a pleasant surprise. It was more entertaining than I had expected- less gore and more comedic moments. Hopefully, the sequel is the same. Check out the trailer below.
