Horror fans are getting an unexpected surprise at the release of the latest Halloween. That is, if they arrive early for the previews.
Similar to what was done with the Unfriended: Dark Web trailer that debuted first in theaters before dropping to online media, Blumhouse is doing the same with the sequel Happy Death Day 2 U.
The film stars Jessica Rothe as the main character Tree Gelbman, as well as Carter Davis, Ruby Modine, Life of Pi‘s Saraj Sharma, and American Horror Story‘s Sarah Yarkin.
Earlier this year Rothe did hint at a possible Death day sequel, saying to Collider, “The sequel, the way he described it to me, elevates the movie from being a horror movie – and I wouldn’t even say it’s just a horror movie because it’s a horror, comedy, rom-com drama – 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.”
Christopher Landon will be at the helm as Happy Death Day 2 U comes to theaters February 14, 2019.
