Don’t blink–The Blind Man is back. And things are gonna get messy.
Don’t Breathe 2–the much-anticipated follow-up to the 2016 Screen Gems sleeper hit–will show exclusively in theaters starting Aug. 13, as reported by Deadline, and a tantalizing trailer can be viewed on this page.
And, as the R-rated film’s tagline says, “Now you’re going to see what he sees.”
In the sequel–directed by Rodo Sayagues from a screenplay he co-wrote with Fede Alvarez–Norman Nordstrom (The Blind Man) returns eight years after the horrific events in Don’t Breathe. But now, he lives with 11-year-old Phoenix, and he has “recreated the family stolen from him by a drunk driver and has found the twisted justice he’s always felt was his due,” according to the official synopsis.
When intruders again invade his home, this time focused on Phoenix, Norman “will reveal for a second time what’s hidden inside him. And again, it will be in new and unexpected ways.”
The film stars Stephen Lang (reprising his role as Nordstrom), Brendan Sexton III, Madelyn Grace, Adam Young, Bobby Schofield, Rocci Williams, Steffan Rhodri, Stephanie Arcila, Diaana Babnicova and Christian Zagia.
The original Don’t Breathe–directed by Alvarez from a script he wrote with Sayagues–was a huge hit with horror fans, raking in $157 million worldwide on a budget of $10 million.
