don't breathe 2 first look

Rodo Sayagues may be stepping into the director’s chair for the first time with Don’t Breathe 2, but there’s no doubt that the film is a team effort. During an event revealing the horror-thriller’s new trailer, Sayagues shared the stage with his co-writer (and the director of the first movie), Fede Álvarez, and their affection for one another couldn’t be more clear.

Not that that’s much of a surprise: the duo have been writing partners since the early 2000s. Since then, they seem to have grown even closer. As such, it’s hardly surprising that they’re largely on the same page when it comes to Don’t Breathe 2, which premieres on August 13, 2021.

In addition to sharing some new footage from the movie, Sayagues and Álvarez discussed the movie, offering some hints as to what the sequel has in store. Here’s what they had to say.

Our first real look at Don’t Breathe 2 is finally here in the form of a trailer. Rodo Sayagues, who co-wrote the original film, is in the director’s chair this time, and Stephen Lang is back as Norman Nordstrom, AKA The Blind Man. The Blind Man once again has to deal with home invaders, but the characters busting into his house this time aren’t inept youngsters like the first film – they’re much more deadly. Watch the Don’t Breathe 2 trailer below.

don't breathe 2 trailer

Give or take one turkey baster, Fede Álvarez‘s 2016 thriller, Don’t Breathe, is a lot of fun. By moving the emphasis from the victim to the perpetrators, Álvarez and his co-writer, Rodo Sayagues, breathed new life into the home-invasion thriller. They also created one of the most memorable cinematic villains of the past decade: Stephen Lang‘s Norman Nordstrom, a blind veteran who’s more than a match for the teenage thieves ransacking his house.

From the looks of things, Don’t Breathe 2, which premieres in theaters on August 13, 2021, is going to flip the script again. For the sequel, Sayagues is in the director’s chair, making his feature film debut. Instead of the bad guy, Norman is the protagonist — and, this time, he’s not fighting off amateurs, but trained professionals.

don't breathe 2 first look

Don’t Breathe was an incredibly well-crafted, well-directed horror-thriller that also made some…uh, let’s say, questionable choices in its third act. Still, the film was a big hit, and there’s been talk of a sequel ever since the original film arrived in 2016. Now, some five years later, that sequel is ready. Don’t Breathe 2 is set to open this summer, and before it does, we have a first look image featuring Stephen Lang‘s very deadly Blind Man.
