'Happy Death Day 2U' Trailer: The Baby Face Killer Is Back To Mess With Your Day

After saving the day, literally, Tree Gelbman (Jessica Rothe) appeared to have defeated the masked killer who somehow kept coming after her over and over again as she relived the same day. It was like a Groundhog Day from hell. But now her happy ending has been given another twist, because the killer is back inĀ Happy Death Day 2U, and he's not just coming after her anymore. This time, they're coming after her friends too, and the killer may not be who it was before.

Watch the new Happy Death Day 2U trailer below.

Happy Death Day 2U Trailer

Easily the best thing about what has now become a horror franchise is the performance by Jessica Rothe. Not only does she deliver the insane intensity that someone would feel after being forced to die over and over again, but she also uses that to make her quite the badass protagonist. On top of that, she's also pretty damn hilarious as she becomes increasingly more unhinged as the day continues to repeat itself. But I'm still wondering just why she's jumping out of a plane in a bikini.

Adding another layer to the horror twist on the repetitive day: this trailer teases some kind of gamechanging revelation that leaves Tree unable to reset the day. Whatever this new wrinkle in the plot is, it sounds like at some point, if she dies, then she won't come back like before. But if the day can't get reset anymore, that'll make the possibility of Happy D3ath Day rather difficult, won't it? We'll find out how that all plays out when the sequel hits theaters in the middle of next month.
