Adam Sandler has proven himself to be one of the biggest viewership draws for Netflix, making the exclusive deal they inked a real steal. In 2019, he drew one of the largest audiences of the year, reuniting with Jennifer Aniston for Murder Mystery. When we think about the rise in popularity of whodunnits, this obviously isn’t the first movie that comes to mind. But it was successful enough that a sequel was quickly ordered up, and now here’s a trailer for it.
Sandler and Aniston return for Murder Mystery 2, and they are joined by director Jeremy Garelick, who last directed 2020’s The Binge. Also in the cast are Adeel Akhtar, Mark Strong, Mélanie Laurent, Jodie Turner-Smith, John Kani, Kuhoo Verma, Enrique Arce, Zurin Villanueva, Tony Goldwyn, Annie Mumolo with Dany Boon. So a star-studded group, for sure.
The sequel finds Sandler and Aniston’s characters taking on a new case now that they are full-fledged detectives.
Here’s the synopsis: Four years after solving their first murder mystery, Nick and Audrey Spitz (Adam Sandler, Jennifer Aniston) are now full-time detectives struggling to get their private eye agency off the ground when they’re invited to celebrate the wedding of their friend the Maharaja (Adeel Akhtar) on his private island. But trouble follows the Spitzes again when the groom is kidnapped for ransom soon after the festivities begin — making each glamorous guest, family member, and the bride herself a suspect. MURDER MYSTERY 2 sends Nick and Audrey Spitz on a high-stakes case that finally gives them everything they’ve ever dreamed of: a shot at their detective agency finally becoming successful…and their long-awaited trip to Paris.
Murder Mystery 2 hits Netflix on March 31st.
