Now you’re going to see what he sees.
That’s the tagline for Don’t Breathe 2, a sequel to the 2016 horror thriller starring Stephan Lang. Watch the first trailer above.
Lang returns as Norman Nordstrom, a blind man living in quiet solace — until his past sins catch up with him. A half-decade after the home invasion portrayed in the first film, bad guys are back. This time, they’re after the young girl (Madelyn Grace) in his care.
Why? As one of the assailants (Brendan Sexton III) tells the girl, who is hiding with Nordstrom, as he stalks her: “It’s not me you need to be scared of, little girl, but the man standing next to you. Now I don’t know who he is, but I know who he’s not. Should I tell her or you?”
That doesn’t go over well with sightless man.
Rocci Boy Williams, Christian Zagia, Bobby Schofield, Adam Young and Diaana Babnicova round out the cast of Don’t Breathe 2, from first-time director Rodo Sayagues. He also co-wrote the script with longtime collaborator Fede Alvarez, who directed the original. The pair also co-wrote the first film.
Alvarez also produced the film along with Sam Raimi and Rob Talpert. The pic from Sony’s Screen Gems opens August 13 exclusively in theaters.
Don’t Breathe was the quintessential late-summer thriller sleeper, ranking 19th in Deadline’s Most Valuable Movie Blockbuster Tournament for 2016. It banked $89.2 million domestic after a $26.4 million opening weekend en route to $157.8 worldwide.
