This is a pretty simple equation: led by Miles Fisher, the cast of Final Destination 5 has spent some perfectly good Warner Bros. money on a promo video for the splatter sequel, in which a school full of characters very much like those from Saved by the Bell are killed in horrifying ways.

Final Destination isn’t the kind of franchise that surprises — if you’ve seen any of the four previous installments, you probably already have a pretty good idea of what to expect from Final Destination 5. We were treated to a 3-D clip from the upcoming film, showing that scene familiar from any Final Destination movie: the moment when one of the characters has a horrifying vision of death, prompting him to get off the airplane / highway / roller coaster / stands / bus just before it comes true.

Final Destination 5 Plot Revealed

Warner Bros/New Line has released a press release announcing the start of principal photography on Final Destination 5, which includes the first official plot synopsis:

In this fifth installment, Death is just as omnipresent as ever, and is unleashed after one man’s premonition saves a group of coworkers from a terrifying suspension bridge collapse. But this group of unsuspecting souls was never supposed to survive, and, in a terrifying race against time, the ill-fated group frantically tries to discover a way to escape Death’s sinister agenda. The new victims of Death’s plan are part of a cast led by Emma Bell (Frozen, TV’s “The Walking Dead”) and Nick D’Agosto (Fired Up!, TV’s “Heroes”). The film is being shot on location in Vancouver, Canada. The second of the “Final Destination” films to be shot in 3-D, Final Destination 5 is being directed by Steve Quale, marking his major feature film directorial debut.
