First Happy Death Day 2U Trailer Will Be Here This Weekend

Paramount and Platinum Dunes originally wanted to release a new Friday the 13th back in October of 2017, but the spooky corridor ultimately belonged to another horror title: Happy Death Day.

Blumhouse and Christopher Landon’s sleeper hit took inspiration from movies like Groundhog Day and Scream and wrapped them all up in a very entertaining package – even if the final product proved to be a bit too familiar for some. Still, Happy Death Day crushed it at the box office, bringing in over $100 million on a production budget of just $4.8 million. And now, we’re getting a sequel in the form of Happy Death Day 2U, arriving on February 14th, 2019.

Not only that, but we’ll be able to get our first look at the pic this weekend, as the teaser trailer will be attached to Blumhouse’s Halloween, which creeps into theaters tomorrow. From what we understand, the preview

The Good Place Season 3 Episode 3: The Snowplow

On a superb The Good Place, Michael and Janet try to snowplow the brainy bunch to success while Eleanor learns something about herself.

This The Good Place review contains spoilers.

The Good Place Season 3 Episode 3

Since Battlestar Galactica’s stunning season 2 finale back in 2006, time jumps have been a useful tool for TV dramas looking to shake things up. Battlestar Galactica’s spiritual successor (and concurrently airing peer for the most part), Lost, pulled off a bravura time jump in its equally stunning season 3 finale. Mad Men made it its business to rapidly travel forward in time between each season. Breaking Bad executed a months long time jump in the span of one “Crystal Blue Persuasion” scored montage. The Walking Dead, now in its darkest creative hour, even opted for a time jump of its own this season to help put the sins of the show’s past behind it.

20 Forgettable ’90s Comedies Only True Fans Remember

Widely considered a wonderful decade for the movie industry, during the ‘90s movie theaters were raking in money hand over fist. On top of how incredibly profitable the movie industry was at the time, many high-quality films came out during the ‘90s that the masses became smitten with. As a result, there are loads of memorable films that came out in that period.

The '90s were also a decade in which many film directors from outside the system became famous, figures like Kevin Smith, Sofia Coppola, Wes Anderson, Quentin Tarantino, and Spike Lee all became important. Considering so many stellar filmmakers worked to make hit films during those years, it should come as no surprise that many quality films were released that sadly flew under the radar. In fact, there are far too many movies from the decade that are championed by very few people but deserve more attention than that.

Happy Death Day 2 U nails down release date – Happy Death Day (above) was a surprise horror hit last year and now it’s getting a sequel.

The Happy Death Day Sequel Will Be Called Happy Death Day 2U and We Have a Release Date

Universal Pictures and Blumhouse are currently in production on the sequel to their hit horror film Happy Death Day. Today we’ve learned that the sequel will be called Happy Death Day 2U and it will be released on February 14th, 2019.

I walked into Happy Death Day thinking it was going to be a piece of crap film, but to my surprise it actually ended up being very entertaining. It was like a horror version of Groundhog Day and I actually enjoyed the movie a lot and I wouldn’t mind seeing how the story continues with a sequel.

Jessica Rothe and Israel Broussard will be back to reprise their roles from the first movie and the original director Christopher Landon is also back at the helm.

There’s no information on the story for the sequel, but the first film centered on a character named Tree Gelbman, “a blissfully

Kirsten Howard Sep 26, 2018

Blumhouse has a Valentine's Day gift for us, with the sequel to Happy Death Day slashing its way into our hearts in February...

The Blumhouse empire of horror movies has another franchise on its hands, with confirmation of a Happy Death Day sequel coming earlier this year.

Christopher Landon, the man behind the first movie, is writing and directing the second. Whether he repeats the Groundhog Day-esque horror approach of the first remains to be seen, but Landon has hinted before that he may explain what caused the time loop in the first place. His star Jessica Rothe will also be returning as Tree, the popular student who had a bad day over and over again in the original film.

The upcoming genre sequel now has a title, a release date and a secretive synopsis. Variety confirms it'll be called Happy Death Day 2U, and be

Universal Reveals ‘Happy Death Day’ Sequel Title
Blumhouse and Universal Pictures are throwing another slasher birthday rager following the success of 2017’s “Happy Death Day.”

The film’s original lead, Jessica Rothe, will return in the newly titled “Happy Death Day 2U” when it hits on the previously announced date of Valentine’s Day 2019.

Christopher Landon is back as writer and director with Jason Blum producing. Angela Mancuso, John Baldecchi, and Samson Mucke (“Scouts Guide to the Zombie Apocalypse”) serve as executive producers.

Plot details are under wraps, though a synopsis said Rothe will discover that “dying over and over was surprisingly easier than the dangers that lie ahead.”

The first followed young co-ed Tree (Rothe) who awakens from a one-night stand and slinks off into a daylong birthday celebration, only to be brutally murdered at a party that evening. Instead of the afterlife, however, she reawakens once again the stranger’s bed and is forced to

‘Happy Death Day 2U’: Universal Sets 2019 Sequel Release Date

  • Deadline
Universal has set a February 14, 2019 wide release date for Happy Death Day 2U, the title of the sequel to the 2017 horror hit from Blumhouse. The studio had staked out the date previously for a Blumhouse horror project and now has made it official.

The original Happy Death Day raked in close to $123 million worldwide. As Deadline scooped, production got underway in May on the sequel, with lead Jessica Rothe and Israel Broussard back along with original director Christopher Landon who also wrote the screenplay this time around.

In the first movie, Rothe’s sorority girl Tree Gelbman relives the day of her murder in Groundhog Day style. She ultimately tries to beat the time loop by discovering her killer’s identity. Broussard plays Carter, the guy she keeps waking up alongside. In the sequel, Tree will discover that dying over and over was surprisingly easier than the dangers that lie ahead.

Film Review: 3ft Ball and Souls (2017) by Yoshio Kato

Time loop films have been a recurring theme in international cinema, with “Groundhog Day” probably being the most famous. In Japan, a prominent sample of this subgenre is the anime “Higurashi: When They Cry” which was also adapted as a live action movie. And I am mentioning this, since Yoshio Kato seems to have been influenced by anime, as “3ft Ball and Souls” also bears some resemblance to “Gantz”, although the essence of the movie is quite different from the aforementioned titles. Let us take things from the beginning, though.

The story begins in a secluded cabin, where Happa, a middle-aged man is sitting along a 3-feet firework ball. Soon, two other people arrive, a young man nicknamed Baby Doll and a middle-aged woman named Tsubasa. It is soon revealed that all three are members of an internet suicide chat room named “Life Club” and are here to commit suicide,

The 7 Best Movies Coming to Netflix in September 2018

  • Indiewire
September marks the start of awards season, and it’s no secret that Netflix is itching to crash Hollywood’s most exclusive party (and maybe even leave with a few golden souvenirs at the end of the night). And it seems like this is the year the streaming giant is going to make that happen, as the company has finally started to meet Hollywood in the middle and play the game by the industry’s rules — at least when it suits them. One strategy the company has learned from the more traditional movie studios: Hold all of your best stuff until after Labor Day, and then drown people in quality until New Year’s Eve.

Not only has Netflix been the talk of the Telluride and Venice film festivals, with Alfonso Cuarón’s “Roma” being hailed as a dazzling masterpiece, the slate of movies debuting on the service in September is an embarrassment of riches.

What’s Coming to Netflix in September 2018

  • Variety
Going back to school or work after lounging at the pool all summer isn’t a fun wake-up call, but you can still escape to Wakanda or “Hollywoo” with the Marvel blockbuster “Black Panther” and Season 5 of the animated comedy “BoJack Horseman,” which are coming to Netflix this month.

Plenty of Netflix originals are debuting or returning in September. Acclaimed director Cary Fukunaga’s dark comedy “Maniac,” starring Emma Stone and Jonah Hill, arrives Sept. 21. The mockumentary “American Vandal” is back for Season 2 and the docuseries “Chef’s Table” returns for its fifth installment. Classic films are also coming to the streaming platform, including “Groundhog Day,” “The Breakfast Club,” “Scarface,” and animated pics “Lilo & Stitch” and “The Emperor’s New Groove.”

New to Netflix in September: ‘Black Panther,’ ‘A Wrinkle in Time,’ and ‘The Breakfast Club’

Ah, movies. Remember those, Netflix viewers? Because why binge every episode of “Queer Eye” when you could do a “Black Panther,” “Spider-Man 3,” and “The Breakfast Club” triple-header? It would take just as much time and be much more educational.

All three are heading to the streaming giant next month, along with “The Cider House Rules,” “A Wrinkle in Time,” and “Groundhog Day.” Netflix gets into the comedy game with originals, including Sanaa Lathan in “Nappily Ever After” and “Sierra Burgess Is A Loser,” starring Shannon Purser of “Stranger Things” and “Riverdale” fame. Rashida Jones makes her directorial debut next month with “Quincy,” the definitive documentary about her legendary father, Quincy Jones.

Awesome Trailer For the H.P. Lovecraft-Inspired Adventure Game The Sinking City

A trailer has been released for an incredible looking new adventure game called The Sinking City and it was inspired by the H.P. Lovecraft universe. The trailer gives off a very eerie and unnerving vibe, which I love. It has such a cool atmosphere and it's the kind of game that I'd have a blast playing.

The game is being developed by Frogwares and this is the synopsis that was released:

He believed he’d be able to rip loose the veil clouding his lost memories, and bring to light the horrors hiding inside, biding their time to submerge the world. At least, that’s how he saw things…Dive into The Sinking City, an adventure and investigation game set in an open world inspired by the universe of H.P. Lovecraft, the master of Horror. The half-submerged city of Oakmont is gripped by supernatural forces. You are a
