Because one Exotic Marigold Hotel just isn’t enough, moviegoers are about to be invited to check out The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel, with Fox Searchlight showing off the official trailer for the comedy/drama. With a cast that includes Maggie Smith, Judi Dench, Bill Nighy, Richard Gere, Penelope Wilton, Celia Imrie, Tina Desai, and Dev Patel, this 2015 comedy is targeting the more mature audience (the same audience that fell hard for the first Exotic Marigold Hotel). Coming to theaters on March 6, 2015, The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel was directed by John Madden from a script by Ol Parker – the same team that was behind the first film.
The Second Best Exotic Marigold Hotel is the expansionist dream of Sonny (Dev Patel) , and it’s making more claims on his time than he has available, considering his imminent marriage to the love of his life, Sunaina (Tina Desai). Sonny has his eye on a promising property now that his first venture, The Best Exotic Marigold Hotel for the Elderly and Beautiful, has only a single remaining vacancy – posing a rooming predicament for fresh arrivals Guy (Richard Gere) and Lavinia (Tamsin Greig). Evelyn and Douglas (Judi Dench and Bill Nighy)have now joined the Jaipur workforce, and are wondering where their regular dates for Chilla pancakes will lead, while Norman and Carol (Ronald Pickup and Diana Hardcastle) are negotiating the tricky waters of an exclusive relationship, as Madge (Celia Imrie) juggles two eligible and very wealthy suitors. Perhaps the only one who may know the answers is newly installed co-manager of the hotel, Muriel (Maggie Smith), the keeper of everyone’s secrets. As the demands of a traditional Indian wedding threaten to engulf them all, an unexpected way forward presents itself.
