Happy Death Day Poster

Universal Pictures’ Happy Death Day‘s new trailer feels like 1993’s Groundhog Day minus Bill Murray and the weather-forecasting furry creature and with a gruesome murder. Christopher Landon (Paranormal Activity: The Marked Ones) directed and co-wrote the script with Scott Lobdell. The cast is led by Jessica Rothe (La La Land) and includes Israel Broussard, Ruby Modine, and Charles Aitken, Laura Clifton.

Happy Death Day arrives in theaters on October 13, 2017.

The Plot: Blumhouse (Split, Get Out, Whiplash) produces an original and inventive rewinding thriller in Happy Death Day, in which a college student (Rothe) relives the day of her murder with both its unexceptional details and terrifying end until she discovers her killer’s identity.
