When Murder Mystery premiered on Netflix in 2019, nobody expected another film in the mystery comedy series. Here we are, over four years later, anticipating the release of Murder Mystery 2. Given the original film’s phenomenal success, it’s no surprise that the streamer has ordered a sequel starring the same ensemble. As expected, Adam Sandler and Jennifer Aniston will return to reprise their roles from the original film. Netflix revealed the plot for Murder Mystery 2 (which had been kept under wraps all along) in a recent announcement of their 2023 release calendar.
According to the marketing photos posted previously by the streamer, Nick and Audrey have made sleuthing their full-time career and are traveling to Paris to solve the current case. As expected, there will be more wacky, hilarious adventures along the way. Murder Mystery 2 is written and directed by James Vanderbilt, with Sandler serving as one of the producers. This will be Sandler’s tenth Netflix original production, not counting the upcoming You Are So Not Invited To My Bat Mitzvah. Murder Mystery garnered mixed reviews and a lackluster welcome from critics upon its initial release. Yet, if figures are any indication of a film’s success, it earned 31 million views in its first weekend, which was the most for a Netflix film at the time. It also became one of Netflix’s top ten movies, which could be attributed to the celebrity power of the lead actors, Sandler and Aniston.
When Is Murder Mystery 2 Coming Out?
Murder Mystery 2 is planned to launch on Netflix on March 31, 2023, according to the latest news.
Is There a Murder Mystery 2 Trailer?
If you’ve been waiting for the Murder Mystery 2 trailer for a long time, your patience has paid off. The official trailer for the mystery comedy has just been released by Netflix, and it will astound you. And not just because Ariana Grande, Jessie J, and Nicki Minaj’s “Bang Bang” plays in the promo video’s background. The video begins with a van ramming into a café, with Nick and Audrey peering out of a broken window. The clip then shows the Spitzes on their way to the Maharaja’s destination wedding, when the scenes shift to a lovely island and the colorful setting of a grandiose Indian wedding, which is regrettably (for them) punctuated by a dead body. It only gets weirder, wilder, and funnier from there. As has become the norm for this couple, their trip is a disaster. The main difference this time is that Nick and Audrey will be working with both familiar and unwelcome new faces. Other than that, the next sequel will feature the same kind of humorous action, high-speed chases, and a whole lot of comedy of mistakes as the original film.
Who’s In the Murder Mystery 2 Cast?
Murder Mystery 2 will have an ensemble cast, similar to the first, in addition to Sandler and Aniston. Tinker Tailor Soldier Spy’s Mark Strong, Inglourious Basterds’ Mélanie Laurent, After Yang’s Jodie Turner-Smith, Money Heist’s Enrique Arce, Scandal’s Tony Goldwyn, Bad Moms’ Annie Mumolo, The Marvelous Mrs. Maisel’s Zurin Villanueva, and Plan B’s Kuhoo Verma will all appear in various roles in the mystery comedy sequel. Sandler plays Nick Spitz, an NYPD cop who subsequently becomes a detective, and Aniston plays Audrey Spitz, a hairdresser and murder mystery novel fan. Adeel Akhtar returns as the Maharajah, and Black Panther star John Kani reprises his role as Colonel Ulenga.
