Happy Death Day 2U is the sequel to 2017’s Happy Death Day, and a film I really should’ve got round to watching as it looks great, and note that as soon as this trailer begins, it tells you what was causing Tree Gelbman’s (Jessica Rothe) day to keep repeating itself, getting bumped off constantly… and yes, she still has a stupid name.
However, now the problem is happening to someone else, and definitely not her… okay, yes, it’s also happening to her, so maybe that wasn’t the accidental spoiler I originally thought? Either way, this looks fantastic, and I must catch up with the first one!
Synopsis: Two years after the events of the first film, Tree Gelbman re-enters the time loop to determine why she was entered into it in the first place. She must also face a revenge-seeking Lori, who has been resurrected by the power of the time loop.
Given the themes in Happy Death Day 2U, it’s strange its release is missing the Halloween market – perhaps that was on purpose, given the new Halloween movie, though, and it’s released in the UK on February 14th 2019, so just in time for Happy Love Day!
