Blumhouse has experienced the horror genre in many different ways over the years, but Christopher Landon’s Happy Death Day franchise is perhaps the most fun the studio has ever had with a slasher The film series, reminiscent of the time loops of Groundhog Day and references to Back to the Future, is a cult favorite and hopes to become a trilogy
Both Happy Death Day movies are gems, which is impressive considering they both occur in the same 24 hour period. In the first film of 2017, Jessica Rothe’s tree is murdered and relives the same day over and over again, while last year’s second film places her in a parallel universe. Here’s how the next film will differ, according to Landon:
The idea for the third movie doesn’t play out on the same day, though that’s a big spoiler So it can happen later We’re not facing a really tough clock right now The other movies were tough everyone had to look alike, be the same The pressure is there
It’s good news for the return of Happy Death Day As Christopher Landon told Empire, his plans for the third film, which he calls Happy Death Day To Us, will move the timeline forward. This is also great news for the Tree series protagonist, who woke up in a dormitory, a double bed on his birthday too many times to count or even should be allowed!
Happy Death Day 2U was a fun sequel but for some reason the movie only made half as much money as the first installment It grossed $ 64 million versus the first movie’s $ 125 million It should to mention, however, that both are said to have been made with insanely low budgets of less than $ 10 million Still, those box office numbers led Landon to announce that the third film was not in development.The writer / director has since provided an update with these words:
It’s definitely on the side at the moment I wish it wasn’t, and I know [Jason Blum, producer] is passionate about it, I know I’m very passionate about it, and I know [Jessica Rothe is really looking forward to doing that too I wrote the idea for the third movie some time ago I think we’re all excited about it, because it’s different from the other two movies, and so we are just keeping our fingers crossed hoping our fan base continues to grow this is something that i have really enjoyed watching over the years, seeing more and more people checking out both movies so who knows there may be a point where it makes sense, and i hope it does is as soon as possible
Over the summer Jason Blum said he was “working overtime” on making Happy Death Day To Us, but funding a project with a small audience can’t be easy.Nevertheless, Jessica Rothe is passionate about coming back as a central character, even if she has to shoot a Jamie Lee Curtis and come back in her fifties, as she has already stated
In the meantime, Christopher Landon is preparing to release a new horror comedy called Freaky, a body swap slasher starring Vince Vaughn and Kathryn Newton Freaky hits theaters on November 13 Spread the love for the Happy Death movies Day so we can see the trilogy, please and thank you!
