Fox Searchlight has released a new trailer for The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, the follow-up to 2012’s hit comedy The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, and you can check it out below after the official synopsis…

The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is the expansionist dream of Sonny (Dev Patel), and it’s making more claims on his time than he has available, considering his imminent marriage to the love of his life, Sunaina (Tina Desai). Sonny has his eye on a promising property now that his first venture, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel for the Elderly and Beautiful, has only a single remaining vacancy – posing a rooming predicament for fresh arrivals Guy (Richard Gere) and Lavinia (Tamsin Greig).

New Trailer For The Second Best Marigold Hotel

17 December 2014 8:41 AM, PST | www.themoviebit.com | See recent TheMovieBit news »

The Best Marigold Hotel was a charming little drama, elevated by a great cast of renowned British actors, including Bill Nighy, Judi Dench, and the one who absolutely stole the show, Maggie Smith. The gangs back for The Second Best Marigold Hotel (slightly unfortunate name there), with Richard Gere going them this time round, and judging by the new trailer below, everybody's on fine form, especially Smith and Dev Patel, promising more of the same the second time round. Not that that's a bad thing. Released: 27th February 2015 (Irl/U.K)/ 6th March 2015 (U.S.) »

‘The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel’ Checks In With New Trailer

17 December 2014 5:16 AM, PST | Deadline New York | See recent Deadline New York news »

The sequel to Fox Searchlight’s 2012 sleeper hit, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, has registered a new trailer today that pulls the curtain back a bit more than the one we saw back in August. Richard Gere, Tamsin Greig and David Strathairn are the newest guests at the Indian inn for the “elderly and beautiful” which Dev Patel and Maggie Smith are successfully running. Patel’s Sonny is looking to expand, but it’s making more claims on his time than he has available — especially considering his imminent marriage to the love of his life, Sunaina (Tina Desai). The original returning cast also includes Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Celia Imrie, Penelope Wilton, Ronald Pickup, Diana Hardcastle and Lillete Dubey. Directed by John Madden from an original screenplay by Ol Parker, The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel opens in the UK on February 26 and in the U.S. on March 6.

Second Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel Trailer

17 December 2014 1:01 AM, PST | EmpireOnline | See recent EmpireOnline news »

We’d say this new trailer for The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is following hot on the heels of the first promo. But that was a couple of months ago, and given the style and feel of both the original film and this new one, the latest look at the sequel has more gently ambled along.Continuing the theme of old meets new and elderly British types seeking the sun, we have Sonny Kapoor (Dev Patel) looking to open a chain of Best Exotic Marigold Hotels across India. He gathers the funds for at least one, and the likes of stalwart resident Muriel (Maggie Smith) plus old pals Douglas (Bill Nighy), Evelyn (Judi Dench), Madge (Celia Imrie) and Jean (Penelope Wilton) are back to help celebrate.New this time is Richard Gere, who causes much romantic consternation among the ladies... With John Madden back directing and Ol Parker once again on scripting duties, »

The Gang Are Back In New Trailer For The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel

16 December 2014 2:54 PM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

The first trailer for The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel sequel, aptly titled The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, has arrived online courtesy of The Daily Mail (via Collider). Directed once more by John Madden, the film picks up after the events of the 2011 movie with a touch of franchise expansion in every sense of the word.

As expected, Maggie Smith, Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Penelope Wilton and Celia Imrie all reprise their roles from the first outing, along with Dev Patel as the eager Sonny. This time around, the keen entrepreneur has his heart set on turning his rustic accommodations into a chain of hotels.

One of the key components to sequel success is, of course, the addition of fresh meat! So, there’s a couple of new names thrown in to spice up proceedings in the shape of Richard Gere, Tamsin Greig and David Strathairn.

A Franchise Begins in New Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel Trailer

16 December 2014 7:27 AM, PST | Collider.com | See recent Collider.com news »

A new trailer for director John Madden’s (Shakespeare in Love) sequel The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel has been released online.  The follow-up is actually a bit meta, as Dev Patel’s Sonny sets out to franchise his popular Indian hotel by expanding and opening the aptly named Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel.  Nearly all of the main cast from the first film returns, plus new additions Richard Gere and David Strathairn.  I found the original to be a sweet movie with a bit of a kick thanks to Maggie Smith’s zingers, and while the nature of sequels makes me doubt this follow-up will match the quality of that first film, the prospect of seeing this cast play off of each other once again is enticing enough. Check out the new international Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel trailer after the jump.  The film also stars Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, »

I never saw the first one so I have no idea if the title for The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is ridiculous or perfect, but as someone not in the know it sounds ridiculous, not that that will matter considering I think all you need here is "Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" and the target audience's ears will perk up after the first movie made $136.8 million worldwide on a $10 million budget and this time around the entire gang is back for more. Director John Madden is back with Maggie Smith, Bill Nighy, Richard Gere, Judi Dench, Celia Imrie, Dev Patel, Tamsin Greig, David Strathairn and Penelope Wilton making up the cast. Here's the plot: The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel 2 (or The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel) is the expansionist dream of Sonny Kapoor, and its making more claims on his time than he has available, considering his imminent marriage to the love of his life, »

Watch: 'The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel' Expands And Franchises In New Trailer

16 December 2014 5:28 AM, PST | The Playlist | See recent The Playlist news »

In the age of everything-gets-a-sequel, even your Aunt's favorite movie "The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel" gets a followup. The first entry was a box office hit a couple years back, particularly overseas where it roped in $90 million all on its own. And now the series is franchising and expanding, and that's not just snarky talk from us, but the actual plot of the movie. Yep, Dev Patel is back playing Sonny, who is eager to build his hotel business, while Maggie Smith, Judi Dench, Bill Nighy and Penelope Wilton have returned, with even more happening in their lives. Meanwhile, Richard Gere is the new face in the mix, ruining everyone's ovaries as the fresh silver fox on the block. And bringing it all together is director John Madden, returning from his duties on this first movie. And really, it's hard to be too upset at a film like this which »

Spectre: Belvedere Vodka announces James Bond movie partnership

16 December 2014 4:38 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Belvedere Vodka has announced a collaboration with new James Bond movie Spectre.

The company will release two limited edition bottles in celebration of the company's partnership with the upcoming film.

Belvedere's Silver Sabre bottles will also feature a new 007 twist as part of the campaign, which will be launched in February 2015.

Professor James Chapman, author of the cultural history of James Bond Licence to Thrill, said: "Bond's drinking habits have always been a central aspect of the James Bond lifestyle.

"Fleming's Bond famously invented the 'Vesper' martini in Casino Royale, and the vodka martini was there for special occasions such as his dinner at M's club Blades (Moonraker) and his sumptuous dinner with American millionaire Mr Du Pont (Goldfinger). And of course, a world-class super villain such as Dr No would not dream of serving anything else.

15 December 2014 8:11 AM, PST | Digital Spy | See recent Digital Spy - Movie News news »

Daniel Craig was back as James Bond as he filmed scenes for the upcoming movie Spectre in London today (December 15).

The actor, who returns as Bond for the fourth time, was pictured in a black speedboat as they sailed across the Thames with Rory Kinnear, who reprises his role as Tanner from Skyfall.

Craig was looking slick in brown sunglasses, a navy overcoat with matching scarf, a grey suit and black leather gloves as he waved and gave fans the thumbs up.

Kinnear donned similar attire in a black jacket, black suit and leather gloves while holding on tightly to the boat.

They were also seen zipping past the MI6 headquarters as they were being filmed by the production crew in a separate boat.

Spoiler Details In "Spectre" Script Review?

14 December 2014 12:31 PM, PST | Dark Horizons | See recent Dark Horizons news »

Gossip site Defamer appear to have done a massive feature about the upcoming 24th James Bond film "Spectre" and have reviewed what they claim is a copy of the early script for the "Skyfall" follow-up.

Several already revealed bits of information appear to come together in the piece including new character details. I've tried to avoid spoilers of any kind, these are the kind of tidbits that will be made clear in the film's promotional material. Potential Minor Spoilers Ahead:

Andrew Scott's character 'C' is the head of Mi-5 and battles with Mi-6 chief 'M' (Ralph Fiennes) over the future of an intelligence sharing program.

Following an early operation in Mexico City, Bond faces forced retirement when he receives a mission posthumously assigned to him by the previous M (Judi Dench).

Monica Bellucci plays the wife of a target and Bond apparently pumps her for information about a sinister masked group. »

Spectre Is Officially Filming! See the First Picture From the New Bond Film Set

9 December 2014 10:49 AM, PST | BuzzSugar | See recent BuzzSugar news »

Following the recent announcement that the new James Bond movie will be titled Spectre, the film's Twitter account tweeted a picture from the set. It doesn't give away a ton of clues about the upcoming movie, but there is a small ceramic bulldog previously owned by the late M (Judi Dench). It's glued back together after having been blown up in her office in Skyfall. Does this mean she's not actually dead? Let's not get ahead of ourselves, but this is very exciting. The movie is due out Nov. 6, 2015, and undoubtedly there will be more substantial pictures before then. Day 1. #Spectre pic.twitter.com/6bvgSTvCrO — James Bond (@007) December 8, 2014 »

First Image From Spectre Surfaces, Complete With A Skyfall Reference

9 December 2014 8:39 AM, PST | We Got This Covered | See recent We Got This Covered news »

It has been a wopping five days since the name and cast of the new James Bond film was announced. While some of us (me) think that calling a Bond movie Spectre demonstrates a slight lack of creative thinking, the casting information has provided a bit more excitement. Christoph Waltz as a Bond villain? Yes, I think I can get behind that. Now that the title has been announced, we can expect some teaser images from the film to start popping up; beginning, apparently, with a tiny reference to Judi Dench’s sadly deceased M.

The first Spectre image is nothing but the clapperboard from the first take on the first day of filming, but it includes a little British bulldog figurine there in the corner. The reference? That’s what Moneypenny (Naomie Harris) hands to Craig’s Bond at the end of Skyfall, a little memento left behind by »
