After the huge success of “Murder Mystery” at the box office, directed by Kyle Newacheck, the solid comedy series is returning to the screen with one more adventurous drama with a stellar cast. The title might sound serious, but this is about two oddballs but inevitably loveable characters who embark on solving the riddle. The popcorn flick film is absolutely overloaded with silly moments, laughs, and melodrama, which is surely going to be added to your watchlist. Until the movie hits, you can stream the first sequel on Netflix to get a better understanding of the backstory.
‘Murder Mystery 2’ Plot
If you have watched and loved “Murder Mystery” beforehand, then your cravings will soon be fulfilled with the release of “Murder Mystery 2.” The upcoming sequel revolves around the happily married couple Nick (Adam Sandler) and Audrey (Jennifer Aniston), the full-time detectives who will face an unexpected situation at a wedding venue. Nick is working as a cop in New York City, and his wife is a hair stylist who is truly loyal to murder-mystery tales. The trailer begins with a phone call where Nick receives the invitation from his friend Maharajah (Adeel Akhtar), who will be getting hitched soon. Though Nick seems very excited, Audrey reminds him that five people were killed in the previous event where they were also present. Where there is Nick, there will be dark sarcasm. Audrey will be seen wearing the gorgeous white Indian outfit designed by Manish Malhotra. The grand wedding venue is filled with guests, sumptuous food, and amazing decor, as shown in the trailer. The groom, seated back on a horse, entered the hall and fell unconsciously. Soon, they all reveal that the real groom has been kidnapped on his big day. This is where the invitees will turn into investigators – the Spitz couple declares everyone as suspects. They got calls from unknown numbers that started demanding money; otherwise, Maharajah’s life was at stake. Audrey always wanted to explore Paris, so she will get a chance to visit—not the way she wished but for the sake of Maharajah’s life, which is mocked by Nick in the trailer. By the end of the clip, the situation turns into an intensified moment where they will try to figure out the roots of all problems.
