Go figure, Happy Death Day 2U Rated PG-13

I never thought a PG-13 slasher movie could work - and then I watched and loved Blumhouse and writer-director Christopher Landon's HAPPY DEATH DAY starring Jessica Rothe. It was pretty badass. And thus I'm looking forward to the sequel more than my own personal birthday. And speaking of the upcoming slasher sequel, today we wanted to make sure and share the news that - yep - HAPPY DEATH DAY 2U has been rated PG-13.

To be a bit more specific, the upcoming sequel has snagged a PG-13 rating via the MPAA for "violence, language, sexual material, and thematic elements." Meh. Works for me. Again, none of this really matters as I enjoyed the first film and it was PG-13 too, so it's all good. Just make sure the inevitable third entry, HAPPY DEATH DAY 3U is rated R and all will be forgiven. Wait, is that a silly title for the third entry? My bad.

Rothe leads the returning cast of HAPPY DEATH DAY 2U, which follows this overly simple synopsis (at the moment):

This time, our hero Tree Gelbman (Rothe) discovers that dying over and over was surprisingly easier than the dangers that lie ahead.

And for those of you that need a bit more, or forgot the original rundown, here ya go:

Tree Gelbman is a blissfully self-centered collegian who wakes up on her birthday in the bed of a student named Carter. As the morning goes on, Tree gets the eerie feeling that she’s experienced the events of this day before. When a masked killer suddenly takes her life in a brutal attack, she once again magically wakes up in Carter’s dorm room unharmed. Now, the frightened young woman must relive the same day over and over until she figures out who murdered her.

Jason Blum once again produces and Christopher Landon returns to write and direct this next chapter, while Happy Death Day executive producers Angela Mancuso and John Baldecchi are newly joined by EP Samson Mucke. HAPPY DEATH DAY 2U hits this Valentine’s Day, February 14, 2019. Will you be making sure to take a date to see all the follow-up PG-13 slasher antics? Let us know below!
