Happy Death 2U Gets a New Release Date

Posted on: January 20th, 2019

Happy Death Day 2U has landed a new release date and it’s a day earlier than before. The sequel will now land on 13th February, moving forward from its originally planned Valentine’s Day debut.

The film was moved due to the original release falling on the one-year anniversary of the heart-breaking event in Parkland, Florida. When speaking about this, Universal has said:
“When Universal Pictures became aware last week that the one-year anniversary of the tragic events in Parkland, Florida fell on the Happy Death Day 2U release date, the studio spoke with victim advocates and immediately began the process of changing the release date of the film. Following discussions with its partners in exhibition, Universal will move the North American release date to February 13th. Additionally, the studio has decided not to show the film in Parkland and the surrounding areas. Outdoor, digital and in-theatre marketing for the film will be suspended in that market. The studio understands the importance of memorialising the February 14th date as an opportunity to continue to allow the Parkland community to heal.”

It’s a respectful move that I’m sure many will appreciate.

In Happy Death Day 2U Tree has to die over and over again to save her friends, so the stakes are even higher than they were in the first film. We look forward to learning how she puts an end to the repetition this time. If she can, that is.

Christopher Langdon returns to direct Happy Death Day 2U, which will land in cinemas on 13th February 2019.
