About the film
Release Date: Feb 14, 2019
Director: Christopher Landon
Actors: Charles Aitken, Israel Broussard, Jessica Rothe, Laura Clifton, Ruby ModineBlumhouse (Get Out and Split) has a special gift for us, with a sequel to Happy Death Day slashing its way into our hearts. Again.
Christopher Landon, the man behind the first movie Happy Death day, has written and directed the sequel. His star Jessica Rothe is returning as Tree, the popular student who is thrown back into a time loop reliving her birthday all over again. Once again, Tree has to figure out how to get things back to normal with her now-boyfriend Carter (Israel Broussard), who doesn't remember they're together, and his roommate Ryan (Phi Vu). This time, the stakes are a little bit higher than worrying about getting killed by a man wearing a creepy baby mask each day.
Don’t be fooled, the film doesn't insult viewers by rehashing the first movie again. And though Tree is caught in a familiar time loop it has many twists and turns you don’t see coming. Jessica Rothe once again gives a great performance as Theresa aka Tree Gelbman. Unlike the first film, which very heavily channeled "Groundhog Day," "Happy Death Day 2U,", has more of a "Back to the Future" vibe.
Stay after the credits for a scene which sets up a possible third, and most likely, final film to the franchise.
